justin had his 4 month check up. he is 19 lbs, 4 oz, and 26 1/2 inches... pretty big boy!
we are able to start him on solids now, but they said it is not mandatory at this point. we'll see how it goes.. i haven't had a chance to get any cereal or other foods yet, so i can't tell you yet how it's going. otherwise, his visit went pretty well. she was really impressed with how well he could move around. she said all of his scars for the shunt and his closure are looking great. i feel like we had a really great visit.. the toughest part is always the shots.. and what is even tougher is when you expect your baby to cry, and they don't.. not because he's "tough," but because he has limited sensation in his upper legs.. i feel awful to say i wanted him to cry, but he didn't even react to the shots. i hate it. i cried every time madi got shots and she would cry.. and now i'm complaining because he doesn't cry. i just can't win! motherhood is hard!
otherwise everything on this end is going pretty well. we have quite a few appointments coming up. his PT suggested that we have an OT come check him out and see if there are any things they feel they could improve with him. and we also have an early intervention nurse coming to evaluate him and see if she has any recommendations. otherwise, he is meeting all of his developmental milestones and everyone is pretty pleased with the lil trooper.
