4 Month Check-up

On Monday, Mia had her 4 month check-up, though she was already 4 months and 3 weeks old. She weighed 13 pounds and was 24 inches tall. Thankfully, the doctor said she was perfectly healthy and he was really impressed with her rolling over skills which she happily displayed on the exam table.
She had to get three vaccinations and handled them really well. She cried for about 20 seconds and then pretty much went to sleep because she was tired and ready for a nap. She didn't end up getting a fever or anything, but does have a big red welt on one of her thighs.
She is really enjoying her cereal these days and has been bumped up to two servings daily. She likes sitting in her bumbo seat to look around and play with toys, but doesn't want to be in there for meal time.
Austin is enjoying interacting with her since she tends to smile or coo back at him. This morning when I was laying her down for her nap he came into her room and climbed up the side of the crib to peek at her. He leaned down and kissed her and said, "Luv you Mia. Sweet dreams, Mia." Then he hopped down, went over to the door said, "Come on Mommy." And as I exited the room he whispered again as he closed the door, "Sweet dreams Mia." He then tiptoed down the stairs making the "shhhh" sound. It was so cute and heart-melting!
