Four Month Check-Up & Stats

I had scheduled Wyatt’s appointment today for what is usually Russell’s day off. BUT a last minute change of schedule (which also allowed him to have 6 days off in a row!) required him to work today. I did try to change the appointment, but our doctor is pretty busy and the next available wasn’t until the end of July. Alright, I can roll with the punches. I’ll just take the kids myself, I said. I have been out with them alone before, albeit only to Target or the craft store. Getting everyone dressed, fed, changed and out the door for an appointment is a little bit more difficult than just going at our own pace. AND it fell right at lunch/nap time for all three of them. Needless to say, things were a little hectic this morning. I packed some food and books for the girls, diapers and all the other usual necessities, and my medical binder for the kids that stores all the important information. About 10 minutes before I needed to start loading the kids into the car I still had to change diapers, get the girls dressed, change and feed Wyatt and get the girls to clean up a little. Somewhere in running around trying to get ready I hurt my toe. I think it got caught under one of the high chairs, but I can’t remember. Honestly at some point I was just like “Wow, that really hurts.” I figured I had just jammed it. Well, we got out the door and got to the doctor’s office pretty much right on time. I threw the girls into the stroller, and Wyatt into the pack and hobbled my way to the office. Of course with a middle of the day appointment we had to wait almost 45 minutes to be seen, but the kids did great. The girls climbed and played and watched some TV (a rarity) and Wyatt cried a bit and then fell asleep. Once we got called back we weighed and measured Wyatt while the girls checked out the new books in the exam room.  The doctor came in and checked him out- he looks great! All good things, “see you in two months”. Sounds great. The nurse came in and gave him his shots, he cried but the second I picked him up he was totally fine. What a big boy. The girls were concerned, but happy to see him feeling better so quickly. We loaded everyone back into their places (with the girls switching spots in the stroller and car seats of course) and came home. A quick lunch and into bed they went. Wyatt crashed on the floor only minutes after getting home. Poor little guy! After getting home my toe was still really sore, and when I finally got time to look at it, it is most definitely broken. Bruised, and sore all around and in between it and its buddy. Oh well, mostly successful. And not bad for a first try!

Here are Little Man’s four month stats:

Weight: 18 pounds 2 ounces- 95th percentile! (the doctor told me most one year old’s weigh between 20-22 pounds)

Height: 25 1/2 inches- 75th percentile (the same as the girls @ 6 months)

Head circumference: 41 cm- 25th percentile

All in all he looks like he is going to be a big healthy boy! We are so blessed.

I almost blacked out! Us mom’s are super strong if you ask me!
