4 Month Doctor's Stats are in:
Weight: 12lbs & .05oz (17%)
Length: 25 & 1/4" (81%)
Head Circum.: 16 & 1/4" (57%)
As you can see Kennedie is growing... but not so fast in her weight. She should have been about 14lbs at this months visit, but was lacking a little when we went in on Friday. The doctor did not seem to worried because she is growing in length & head circumference. Kennedie is just not a big eater. I offer her more to eat & she is typically uninterested. She is a very happy baby, & so I assume she is getting just what she needs. She is meeting all her mile markers, so I guess she is just a petite little girl.
The doctor said we could start feeding her rice cereal this week & that may help her put on some more weight. Not sure just yet if we will start this week or not. She is already very interested in table food.... she watches Lantz and I eat very intently & almost tries to hold her hands out to get some herself. Don't know. We'll see. I don't think it's a big deal either way. It will be fun when we do start her on some solid food just to see her reaction.... it's always exciting to see her do or try something new. Any thoughts?
Oh, I forgot to mention in the last post that Kennedie is still wearing her 0-3 month clothing (obviously, based on her lack of weight gain). It's weird that she is now over 4 months old and still in 0-3 month, but I guess those are just generals & not for everyone. She has worn a few of her smaller 3-6 month outfits (outfit above is one).
So our little girl may not be the bulkiest on the block, but she may be the tallest..... check out that length! She will be tall like Daddy I guess. Either way- she is still the cutest & most precious baby ever.... and we believe she is perfect just the way God made her!
