Jessica's 4 month check up
There's my big girl. She had a successful and comical check up. So here is the good, the bad & the poopy.
Height: 24 1/2"
Weight: 14.8 lbs
Head circumference: 17 1/2
Jessie is taking Zantac for her reflux and we will continue with this medicine until she seems like she's grown out of it. Jess is becoming a better eater but she still struggles. I wish it was easier for her :( poor little thing.
But she is gaining weight as you can tell from the above picture. My chubby cherub.
Jessica is a happy smiley sweet girl.
The bad news, that giant head is weighing her down. She hates tummy time and I think it's because her head is so big. Dr. Abbott says that she is developing a flat area on the back of her head and that like it or not she needs lots more tummy time. We need to try to reduce the amount of time she spends on her back.
Looks like we will be doing tummy time boot camp over here.
And finally the poopy. Jess was a bit constipated this morning and we saw her pushing pretty hard and then she seems relieved so we thought she was all done. Well as soon as I took her diaper off poop shot out and Dr. Abbott had to actually jump out of the way. And it just kept coming we were all laughing until I realized I had used my last diaper and only had one wipe left. Lets just say a box of tissue and a swaddle blanket saved the day.
And big brother Connor was there to help comfort her after her vaccinations. 1 oral and 3 shots. OUCH!
After some Tylenol and hugs she fell fast asleep.
Good job Jess and big thanks to big bro Connor.
