Doctors Visit

We were finally able to take Myra in for her 4 month check up. We were between insurances for a couple of weeks - what with the new job and all. Anyway, I had Violet's 5 year appointment at the same time.

Myra: 12 lbs 6 oz (11%tile)
24.6 (46%tile)

Violet: 38lbs 8 oz (41%tile)
40.1 (9%tile) - They double checked this to make sure - yep she's short.
The Dr. said she carries her weight well and doesn't look too short for her weight. That's good. Violet was already up to date with her kindergarten shots and didn't need any. She did have to pee in a cup. Myra got 4 shots plus the rotavirus vaccine. Ashton was glad that it wasn't him getting shots. Myra is a bit cranky, but Tylenol helps.

Myra weighs less now than Ashton did when he was 2 months old. At 4 months he was already 15 lbs. At 4 months Elaine was 11 lbs. Way to go Elaine! Violet was 14 lbs 10 oz when she was 5 months old. So Myra looks to be smaller like Elaine. We are planning on introducing rice cereal today, so maybe she will "bulk up."
