Four Month Check Up

Ryan had his four month check up today.

Here he is in the waiting room before being called back.
It was a little unnerving watching sick kids come in and have to put on surgical masks so they didn't spread there sick germs.
I love this new look from Ryan! He started sucking in his bottom lip and it's so cute!

How big is baby Ryan?

Baby Ryan is SOOOOO Big!!!
(Ryan loves the book "So Big Elmo" b/c Elmo is SOOOO Big)

As you can see Ryan weighs 14lbs 14oz - 50%

He is 25.3 inches long - 75%.
He grew three inches from his last appointment at two months. I don't think it was very accurate but he is definitely growing taller.

And his head circumference was in the 75 percentile. His brain is growing!

Ryan got a great report today. He is growing and reaching all his milestones right on target. The doctor also told us some things to help with tummy time and rolling over. First momma needs to take his wedge out of his crib. This makes me nervous but according to studies out there, there is a higher chance of SIDS when using a wedge.

We are still trying to decide if we are gonna start solid foods. I'm anxious to but I would like to move him to eating every 4 hours during the day instead of 3. I'm gonna try this tomorrow and see how it goes. I love having him on a schedule and doing the same thing every day as far as when he eats so I'm a little nervous about messing with his schedule. I'm sure he will adjust like a champ!

Wow! He's getting so big! That photo of him standing next to you is really cute. I'm glad he's continuing to do well! Sounds like you're doing a great job as a mom Summer.
