Thanks to thoughtful family friends, the boy has a new way to occupy his time:
So, Alon hit the 4 month mark on Sunday [unbelievable!], and a few days later we made the requisite trip to the pediatrician for height/weight check, general developmental progress check, and [the horror!]…shots. Ugh. Don’t get me started on that last one.
But I thought I would report the stats:
Height – 24.75 inches – up 4 inches since his 2 month visit – and in the 50th percentile! [it’s been a long time since I was anywhere near the 50% mark, so that makes me happy]
Weight – 13 lbs, 7 oz – up 1.5 lbs since the 3 month weigh-in, and right at the 25th percentile
Head circumference – 41 cm, up 3 cm from the 2 month mark and also right at the 25th percentile [kind of amazing considering how big his head seems…]
So, Alon is clearly growing at a good pace. The smiles, coos, hand-grabbing, and ever-growing ability to hold his head up high all indicate that physical/physiological development is progressing just as expected, as well. So we’re happy parents.
And here’s the required picture of the day – Aloni with “Tut” the turtle [turtle courtesy of Aunt Varda; name courtesy of Neil; and cute shirt courtesy of JT, Naomi & Benji]:
It was been a wickedly busy month. We cannot really remember all that we did [ok, maybe just me]. It has been a blur with high visitor traffic – to our house, not the blog. It has been great – social and many changes almost daily. The Boy is growing – laughing, rolling, smiling, watching, trying to verbalize, etc. We will keep this post short because we know what you came for: Smiley Boy, ii
