4 Month Check Up

Caedmon had his 4 month check up today and since I had a snow day, I was able to take him. I wasn't looking forward to the vaccinations. It was horrible last time and I dreaded putting Caedmon through it again! But finding out his statistics is always fun!
He'll actually be 18 weeks (4 1/2 months) on Friday. Wow, where does time go?! My baby's growing up!
He weighed 19 lbs. 2oz. and measured 27 1/2 inches long. He's still off the charts!
The doctor said he's beautiful and healthy, although he heard a little something in his chest; said croup is going around, but that he's healthy and fighting off whatever he has. I didn't even realize he had anything. He finally got over his congestion and cough a few weeks ago. Hope this doesn't turn into anything more serious.
Asked the doctor about Caedmon's sleeping habits. He doesn't sleep much during the day, still eats every 2 hours and for a week and a half now, hasn't been sleeping through the night - he's been up about every 4 hours.:/ Doc says for his size and age, he doesn't need to eat in the middle of the night and I can start ignoring him. We'll see how that goes!
The vaccines were not bad at all this time! He protested a little, but the nurse actually picked him up when she was done and he was fine with her! Even smiled and started talking! I feel so much better about them this time around. And he's sleeping soundly without any Tylenol!:)
So there you have it - the latest on the little guy!:)

I loved vanderzwaag's post-----Everyone misses Keelie when we don't see her:) As for Caed ,he is so handsome. Keelie, you may have to improvise a little when it comes to store trips-- try wrapping a blanket to prop him in the seat of cart or maybe tying him in with rope(lol) or you could take a front pack and secure him to the front of your cart-- he could be like a hood ornament on a car. O.K., it's Friday I'm a little weird today but really you could have some great fun with this. Maybe you can see where my son gets his adventurous nature from. The "great" fun mom had with him as a baby:) It really is harmless, my kids turned out o.k.--I think...
