4 month shots

Yesterday was Barrett's 4 month check-up and shots. Daddy took off work in the morning to go with us...mostly just moral support for Mommy! Barrett did great. Everything looked wonderful. The shots were quick and he screamed pretty good until I picked him up. I'm sure they hurt me more than him :) We got the green light to start some cereal if we want to. I'd rather just continue with only breast milk till at least 6 months, but we might go ahead and add a bit of cereal to his afternoon bottle. I'm having a hard time keeping up with what he eats while I'm at work, so that might help those feedings go a bit further! We'll see!
Here are his 4 month stats:
weight-14 pounds, 8 ounces (he was 12 pounds, 8 ounces at his 2 month appt)
head-17 inch (head was 16 inches at 2 months)
length-24 3/4" (length was 23 inches at 2 months)
Look at the band-aid on my sweet, chunky little thigh!! I was such a good boy!


  1. He is growing like a weed! I hate when they have to get shots :( Good to talk to you a few minutes ago. Keep me posted.

  2. SOOO gotta get you added to my blog roll. So glad you have joined along I see your house every day and wonder how everyone is XOXOX

  3. Love the red onies :) Such a big boy getting shots. Can't blame him for crying. Those things hurt!

  4. I can't believe he is 4 months old already! I still remember when I found out you were pregnant! Was it that long ago?!!

    I agree...shots might sting the kiddos, but they are FAR harder on us moms than the babe!!

  5. Hi Laura,

  6. Your little guy is so cute. I don't have kids yet (have three nieces and nephews), but when we do I know I'll find it saddening when they grow-up so quickly. I wish they could stay newborns for much longer. Their little toes and hands are so precious :-)


I LOVE reading comments, so thanks for stopping by :)
