4 months old

Logan turned 4 months on Sunday. Hard to believe! I took him for his 4 month appointment at the pediatrician's office. He weighed in at 13lbs 1 oz. and was 25 inches long. His height moved up to the 75th percentile curve and his weight dropped to the 25th percentile curve. Because he moved down in the weight chart, I have to take him back on November 11th to get him weighed again. If he stays on the 25th percentile curve or moves back up to the 50th, then everything is fine. If he drops to a lower curve, though, we may have to do some type of intervention (perhaps supplementing with formula) to help boost his weight. I'm not too worried since he obviously shot up in height and he doesn't act any more hungry than normal.
The other event at the pediatrician's was his shots. This round was so much better than the first round at 2 months. He cried when he got the shots, but as soon as I picked him up he stopped crying and acted like nothing had happened. He was a little more cuddly the rest of the day (which I don't mind at all!), but he ate and slept fine and was happy while he was awake. I couldn't have asked for a better shot experience!
