4 Month Well Visit

Tuesday, April 14, 2009
While waiting for the doctor, Alexa found some stored up energy.
First her feet, and then...
...she decided that she wanted to
stand and basically destroy the room we were in.
By the time the nurse came back in for her shots,
Alexa had the paper wet - from drool that is - and torn to pieces.

Weight: 14lbs, 15oz - 69th percentile
Height: 25 1/4 in - 85th percentile
Head: 43 1/4 cm - 97th percentile

The doctor could not believe how active and alert Alexa is. She really enjoyed her exam. She tugged and pulled on everything in site, including the nurses hair...then proceeded to laugh. The doctor kept asking us if "she is always like this"? "Is she always this alert"? Our answer was "Yup!" to all of his questions. He proceeded to laugh at all she was doing and inform us that she is going to keep us very busy and very shortly we will be chasing her from one end of the house to the other. He could not believe how active she was. He then added, "I can't wait to see her in a couple of months...even years! Watch out"!

He was floored when we told him she is eating 40+ ounces of formula a day. He did tell us that we could start giving her Baby Oatmeal once a day along with her cereal. So now she eats oatmeal for breakfast and cereal for dinner. Boy does she LOVE the oatmeal. I don't think she missed a drop of it. We even had to make more as she inhaled the first bowl we made.
