Well, Kaitlyn had her 4 month check-up this past Wednesday and she did great! She's very good at letting Dr. Foster look in her ears and poke her tummy. Not such a fan of the shots though! She did her "angry" cry for a couple of minutes, which then turned in to her "pitiful, don't you feel sorry for me cry" until she feel asleep in the car on the way home.
Kaitlyn is now 13.4 pounds, which is the 47 %tile (seems so much smaller after her being 9.3 pounds and the 82%tile at birth!). Her head circumference is 16 inches, which is the 41%tile... explains why all her 0-3 month hats are still huge on her. Kevin and I tried putting a "newborn" size hat on her head in Babies R Us the other day and it came all the way down to her chin! Finally, she is 25.7 inches long, 94%tile... nice and tall just like Mommy and Daddy!
Dr. Foster also said we could start feeding her cereal and we could start trying bananas and applesauce. It's been an interesting experience to say the least. Today, day 4, of "real" food has gone a bit better. She's definitely not a big fan of the cereal, but she loves the bananas! Here's a picture of her on day 2 of feeding. This was an improvement over the first day, but I still think she ended up wearing most of it!
