A Bowlful of Cherries

Celebrating Matty and Noah

Little Face at 4 months.

Matt endured his 4 month check up on Tuesday. Beforehand, I tried to get him excited about it. Telling him all the fun things the doctor would do and talk about. His reserved stare told me he wasn’t buying it. I tried! He did have some fun with Dad while waiting to be called for his exam. This continued while he was undressed waiting for the doc. His kicking feet found the exam table paper and woo-wee he rustled up a storm of tissue. Mike and I repapered the table twice. It was a great visit. The doctor said Matt is healthy and happy and quite a good looking little fellow (of course!). The stats as follows:

Height, okay, well, length: 26 1/4
Weight: 17 lbs 10.2 oz
Head: 17 1/4

Very well proportioned. Even more exciting was the doc giving us the greenlight to start Little Face on solids. Though all of that excitement soon died down when the nurse came back in to administer another 4 shots to Matt’s chunky chicken legs. All in all, I guess he kind of took it like a trooper. If you consider screaming like a banshee trooper-esque. His face was like a howling beet. He settle down though (eventually) and flirted with a 2 year old while we waited to checkout. Soon after we were back in the car and all was fine as he drifted to sleep. (But he still looked a little pissed off.)

Can’t wait until the 6 month appointment!

  1. WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN THE BEFORE HE SEES THE DOCTOR AND AFTER HE SEES THE NURSE PICTURES. MY POOR BABY NEPHEW LOOKS SO SAD IN THE POST SHOT PICTURES. BUT WE ALL KNOW IT HAS TO BE DONE. I’M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THE CAMERA, THESE ARE GREAT PICTURES. MISS & LOVE YOU GUYS.

  2. Sad? Pissed is more like it. He knew who was holding him down (hint: it wasn’t daddy).

    In the 5th picture, you’ll see that he’s got a bit of a smile on his face. Even when he was hurting, he gamely smiled for the camera.
