Last week we had Rissa’s 4 month check up. The doctor said she continues to grow fine, doing wonderful, and to keep doing what we’re doing! Honestly, though, I’m a tad worried about her weight.

She measured in at 12lbs 5oz, 25 inches long. Her weight dropped down into the 30th percentile but her height is in the 85th percentile.

As I mentioned 2 months ago, I don’t know where she’s getting her height from. This child is long and skinny! She grows out of her clothes due to height and her cloth diapers get sized up for her rise but are still loose around her waist.

If this keeps up…we’ll need a new carseat sooner than I had anticipated!

She’s hitting other basic milestones, such as more vocalization, bring hands together (and to her mouth), grasping objects, seeking eye contact, rolling over (still not mastered yet), and laughing.

She now wants to sit up all the time and does quite well while supported.

Her 2nd round of vaccinations were no fun, but I nursed her afterwards in the doctor’s office, which helped her calm down.

Her previous stats:

At birth she was 6lbs 10oz, 19.75in. She was just a bit below average.

At her 2-3 week check up she was 6lbs 13oz, 20in. Still just a bit below average.

At her 2 month check up she was 10lbs 8oz, 23in. Average for weight, above average for height.
