4 month stats

My sumo wrestler is growing by the day.

Today was his 4 month appointment...

Weight: 17.6 pounds (oy!)  (83%)
Length: 26 3/4"  (91%)
Head: 17 1/4 (93%)

He got 3 more shots.
Let out a little whelp 
and then it was back to smiles.  

Doctor cleared you for food.
(Good because Mommy started giving it to you 2 weeks ago)

Said you should be sleeping 8 hours a night,
NOT in Mommy & Daddies room (oops!)

So looks like the crib it is tonight, 
for real this time


  1. He's so cute! I wouldn't worry about where he sleeps. Granted, I'm no expert, but I went to a workshop a few weeks ago led by a baby sleep expert and she said new research actually supports babies sleeping in their parents' rooms until they're 6-12 months old. (Not necessarily cosleeping, but in the same room.) She also said pediatricians don't often have the latest (or best) information on baby sleep needs/patterns. Their training is in baby health and wellness, which is related but different. Just something to keep in mind.

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet message. I took your advice and am keeping that little one right next to me, until he's 12 ;) There are so many different things out there, it's hard to tell who's right. Thats when we just need to trust our "Mommy instinct!"
