Yesterday was Jewell's 4 month doctor visit. I can't believe how much she's grown! She now weighs 13 lbs and 2 ounces. She's more than doubled her weight in 4 months and has grown 5 inches. The doctor said she's right on track. I was concerned about her head control since she doesn't do tummy time well. But the doctor said not to worry because babies typically don't understand what to do for tummy time until about this age. That made me feel so much better.
Dr. Wylie told us that we can start her on cereal whenever we feel comfortable with it. He told us that the way to know if she's ready is if she enjoys trying to eat it. If she looks away and fusses then we should wait another week and try again. So we may be endeavoring that little adventure this evening just for fun. We are also beginning to start giving her 2 formula bottles a day while I'm at work. I believe this will make me breath a lot easier.
We finished the visit with 4 more shots. Jewell was fussy last night, but ended up sleeping for 12 hours. No complaints! Here are a few pictures from this week.
