4 Month Checkup

Today, Miles and Vivienne had their 4 month checkup.  It was really interesting to see their growth charts.  They're both growing really well.  Miles is 25.5 inches long and weighs 15 lbs.  He is at the 72nd percentile for height and 53rd percentile for weight.  Vivienne is 23.5 inches long and weighs 13 lbs.  She is at the 23rd percentile for height and the 35th percentile for weight.

It appears that Miles may have a sensitivity to cow's milk protein, which means that I need to try to avoid all dairy for 2-3 weeks and see if it makes a difference.  I'm admittedly not looking forward to cutting out dairy, but my little guy is worth it.

They both got two shots - one in each thigh.  They were not very excited about that.  Miles had fallen asleep on his daddy's shoulder, so he had to be woken up and then got his shots.  Needless to say, this did not go over well.  However, they settled down quickly and they were asleep before I got them home. Miles took a 3-hour nap today, and both babies fell asleep earlier than usual.  I'm hoping that they are back to normal tomorrow.

This afternoon, we went on a walk with our friend Pam at Hemlock Bluffs.  We had a great time walking through the forest and seeing all the trees.  Fall has been spectacular here in North Carolina.  Now, most of the leaves are on the ground, but there are still many beautiful red, yellow, orange and purple trees covering the landscape.  I have really enjoyed taking in the scenery during my walks with the babies.
