4 months old!

It's so hard for me to believe that Margaret is 4 months old. But she is.

She had her 4-month check-up yesterday. Her doctor is so pleased with her growth. She weighs 12lbs 6oz and is 22 1/4 inches long, almost on the growth chart for a 4 month old. But if you adjust for her prematurity and go back to about a 2-month old, Margaret is 50% for height and 90% for weight!

Dr. Mas was also very pleased with Margaret's development, saying she is doing everything a full-term 4-month baby should be doing.

She told us to wait to start cereal till 6 months, in order to give Margaret's suck/swallow reflex more time to mature.

She got her vaccinations again too. This time she's gotten more of a fever than last time, so we're doing tylenol every 4 hours. Other than that, she has been ok, just a little cranky and tired.

My brother, Ben is here, we picked him up Wednesday and he stayed with us that night. Last night he stayed at Becka's, our sister. Today we are going to Merritt Island for our cousin's wedding tomorrow.

Every one of these pictures were taken by Elisabeth and Joseph while we were out to dinner Wednesday night. Pretty impressive huh?
