4 months continued...

This morning we headed to Emma's 4 month well check. She is growing growing growing!

She tipped the scales at 14lbs 7oz (67%) and was 25 inches long (60%). And her head is just, well, BIG! Compared to Grace she is actually a little smaller than her at this age. Funny to think of Grace as being a little rolly polly since she is a little skinny thing now.

Anyway, Emma got a clean bill of health. We will probably try to start cereal closer to 5 or 6 months. I just don't think she is ready for it right now.

Oh and about the bottle business... I asked pediatrician what he thought and he basically said some kids are just stubborn and will hold out all day if needed. He said he has a couple working mothers that nurse in the morning and their kid wont eat a think all day at daycare... holding out 8+ hours! Those poor daycare workers!!

So glad she is healthy and growing! I am sure it made you feel better to hear the doctor say those things about the working moms he knows! I guess kids won't starve, but I sure do feel bad for those daycare providers!

Yikes! 8 hours with no food...stuborn little ones! Glad Emma is progressing well, and you are willing to be patient. Emma & Grace are very fortunate for your patience weather it comes to bottles or potty training. Keep it up mommy!
Love,
