4 Month Check-Up

Remember I'm playing catch up so Caleb's 4 month check-up was actually on March 13. He did really good and appears to be doing just fine. He was asleep when we arrived and woke up right before they called his name.He weighs 13 lbs 12 oz. (25th percentile), is 26 1/4 inches long (90th percentile) and his head is 16 1/2 (50th percentile). The pediatrician said he is a little thin but nothing to worry about he is just long and lean. Even though it's killing my mom we are holding off introducing him to cereal. The pediatrician said that she recommends waiting until he is 5 or 6 months old.

He wasn't able to get his HIP vaccine because they are out of it (Well they are out if you have insurance, they have a limited supply and could have given it to him if I didn't have insurance. Crazy! Don't even get me started on my thoughts on this.) They said they would give it to him at his next appointment if they have it.
He did really well and only cried for a few minutes after they gave him the shots (an oral vaccine and 2 shots in his right leg). He didn't seem to be as sore this time but did run some fever during the night which kept him up quite a bit even though I gave him some Tylenol.
