Lily and I both survived the trauma of yesterday’s 4 month appointment – whew! Another one down … thank goodness!
If you’re curious, here’s where she stands as of Thursday, September 17th:
- Weight: 14 lbs 10.5 oz
- Length: 24″
- Head: 41.5 cm
So … that means:
- Length for age: 25th – 50th percentile
- Weight for age: 75th – 90th percentile
- Weight for length: 75th – 90th percentile
- Head circumference for age: 75th – 90th percentile
You go, girl! She was awesome; she didn’t cry long after her 3 shots (Ouch!) which is SUCH a good thing because my heart was breaking into a million pieces as every second passed. We got the low-down on flu shots (He he, have I mentioned that I LOVE this pediatrician? He totally shares our sentiments on the whole thing …), and all in all, it was okay.
I totally enjoyed my day with Peanut – we got up and did lots of laundry, went to her appointment, strolled around Kohl’s in her big girl stroller (First time in it!), then headed home for a long nap (I should have joined her, but didn’t.). It was an awesome day!
Oh, I can’t forget … we rounded the day out with an awesome dinner – Poor Man’s Lobster! I promise to take pics next time we make it. It’s SO simple! You’ll need halibut (However much it’ll take to feed you/your family will work.), 1 gallon of water, 1/2 cup salt, and 1 cup sugar. Bring the water, salt & sugar to a boil. Cube the halibut (Mine were about 3/4″ square.) and when the water boils, drop the halibut in. The halibut is done when it rises to the top, so scoop it out as it rises. It truly tastes like lobster – of course, it must be served with melted butter! Sooooo good!
