4 month check up

Yesterday Owen had his 4 month check-up. Doctor visits are fun because we get to see how much he has grown and hear about how well he is doing and thriving. :) Makes a mama feel good. Doctor visits are not all good though. At the end of these early appointments (2 month, 4 month, 6 month) there are shots that need to be administered. Usually 2 shots and 1 oral something or other. I wish they could administer all vacines or drugs or anything helpful to the body orally. SO MUCH EASIER! It wouldn't even have to taste good. Still better than a shot.

I'm ready for my check-up!
He's actually 4 months and 1 week

So, anyway, Owen is weighing in at 14.6 lbs and just over 26 inches. He's long and lean...although you wouldn't know it just looking at him. He has some chunky little legs and I love love love them! He even rolled over in both directions for the doctor when she came in. It was great, it was like he was trying to show off and say "Doc, I'm doing great! You don't need to give me any shots right?"
I guess she didn't quite agree.
Look at the bandaids! Poor little guy got a shot in each thigh.
She does think that he is doing great and seems to be a very hapy and active baby.
He had a bit of a rough afternoon but by the evening he was doing much better. I fed him and gave him some baby tylenol and that seemed to help a lot. 
 Oh, and taking baby bandaids off is almost as bad as taking off your own bandaid.
I'm definitely making Scott do that next time.
And here he is this morning - happy, bright eyed and bushy tailed. Check out that belly!
