Graham and Rory both had doctors appointments today. Graham was really excited to have Aurora come with him.
OFC: 15.2 inches - 25%
For this visit she was legitimately 4 months old. She was due for a nap, but because she's such a good baby, she never fussed once. Well, until she got her immunizations, but that doesn't count. She was calm and pleasant. I wouldn't say she was HAPPY, because she was so tired. But she did give the nurse a couple of smiles here and there. Her current numbers are:
Weight: 10 lbs 8 oz - <5>Length: 24.75 inches - 75%
OFC: 15.75 inches - 25%
As you can see, she is quite petite. At four months of age both my boys were at least 13 lbs, so I was a little bit worried about what the doctor was going to say about her weight gain. I haven't been that concerned because she is so pleasant, and she sleeps well. But still, she only weighs 10 pounds! Turns out Dr. Burnett isn't worried about it either. Her growth is on a steady curve. Genetics play a big role. (Ahem...Alex's daughter) I told her that while I'm at work Rory eats between 4-6 oz of breast milk per bottle, and that's what I pump while I'm gone. She felt good about it all. She said I could come back in a month, just for a quick weight check to make sure she continues growing on the same curve.
