18 Weeks..

Caroline turned 18 weeks old on Tuesday and she had her 4 month well check that day. She's 15lbs 1oz and 25 inches long. She's in the 75th percentile for everything...she's been consistent from day one. She had to get an oral shot and one shot in each thigh. She did really well. She let out one cry and that was it. It's so hard watching that.

Her peditrician said that she is ready to start solids. She's showing all of the signs of being ready and they should help with her spitting up. We have done rice cereal once a day for the past two days. She hasn't taken more than two bites each time but we're not going to push it. She eats it and doesn't spit it out though.

We talked to her pediatrician about her flat head issues and her evaluation at Cranial Tech and she gave us a referral to a craniofacial surgeon for a second opinion. We're meeting with him on Tuesday. Her pediatrician doesn't think she needs a helmet but wants us to feel secure in whatever decision we make so she gave us the referral. I'll let you know how things go.

Here are some pictures from the past week.

With her cousin Leah
With Grandma Nana
She tried out cousin Diego's swing..we may have to get one soon
We bought her a doorway jumper because she loves jumping so much. If we stand her up on our laps she will jump and's so cute.
She loves grabbing her toes when she's in the Bumbo.
Visiting her other grandparents.
After her shots. She is constantly chewing on her hands now.
Trying to figure out what is in the bowl.
She looks a little aprehensive.
Not bad.
I think she likes it.

And here's Jake.

She's getting so big! The jumperoo has been the biggest hit for us so far, too. :)

Please post what you find out from the referral. I talked to you on the bump about my little one's head and we are still torn on what to do, too.
