    Hello Aidan's 4 month check up

    Advertisements
    So, Aidan had his 4 month well baby today (he's 4.5 months) He weighs 16 pounds (75th percentile) and is 26.75 inches long (95th percentile). He's grown 3 inches since his 2 month well baby. Developmentally, he's at about 6-7 months . Dr. G said she's never seen a 20 week old standing on his own, and advised us to baby proof the house NOW. She also said that socially he's ahead. Babies his age usually don't have stranger anxiety, and Aidan didn't the last time she saw him about 3 weeks ago, but he sure does now!

    In other news, I've discovered that I've been underestimating his appetite. I've been giving him half an ounce of food at a time, but Dr. G said he can have more if he wants it. Apparently, he does, since he just downed an entire jar of peas like it was nothing. She also told us to switch him to oatmeal cereal to try to help with his gas.

    So all in all, he's doing great!

    Just imagine him with a teenage appetite.

    Better start saving now.

    And about baby-proofing.

    about his appetite. He sounds like he eats peas like a champ. My mom used to try to feed me the same peas five times and my father made this face so she finally stopped.

    I'm glad to hear he's doing so well! I can't believe how advanced he is Know what's funny though...Landon is younger than him and is around 18lbs and 26inch long He's gigantic, but definitely not near Aidan's development in other areas (which I'm secretly thankful for ). I want him to be "little" as long as possible

    Go Aidan! Run mama ragged!....I mean...be good for mommy

    Lol, yeah the baby proofing thing is freaking me out. I'm trying to figure out what we need to do. I'm so excited that he's eating so well. and I'm wih you. I hate that kind of peas. They smell like canned peas
