4 month checkup

This is Moira at Grady's age! She was 16 lbs and 26", which is the 100% for girls.

Applesauce face!

Grady had his 4 month checkup today. We are all still sick so I didn't really know which side of the waiting room to stand on, so we went with the sick (we'll probably end up with a new bug b/c of that). He is 26 1/2" long, 16 lbs 13 oz, and head is 17". He's in the 80% for head and weight and 85% for height. "Good proportions, if you like big" according to the Dr. He gave me the go ahead for solids if I thought he was ready. We had some applesauce for lunch! He loved it. I had to cut him off b/c I didn't want it to be too much of a shock to his little system. He was fussy all evening, probably a combo of shots and that cold we still have. He was up ever few hours last night. Ugh.
We have dance class tomorrow. Moira is insisting she won't go, wish us luck!
Today Grady was in his exercaucer (thanks Cheryl!) and I looked over and Moi had her foot in his face and he was getting ready to suck on her toes. Her dirty, filthy, grubby toes. I was like "nooooo!" and she said "but he likes to eat feet". Yuck!


  1. hey meg! just got time to catch up on your blog - oh, i didn't know you were so sick! I'm so sorry, it sounded awful...just what you needed, on top of everything else you are dealing with on a daily basis! But, on the brighter side, hooray for Chris being home for the WHOLE weekend! Whoa, what was the occasion? We went to dinner with Matt, Ellie, and Caroline on Friday night, nothing too exciting with them - nobody talked about work, which was good and less awkward for Scott! I just looked at Daly's 4 month stats, he was 15 lb 10 oz and 25 3/4 inches. He was doing 3 naps on and off and he was sleeping from 8 to 4 or 5 and nursing and then sleeping until 7 or 8. We started oatmeal during his first week of his 4th month, 3 spoonfuls of cereal once a day...that's all I have to report from my little calendar...and eating feet, I noticed! :)

  2. Moira's dirty, filthy grubby feet make me laugh. We really might come visit you soon. if we do, Grady can suck on Sammi's feet that get black from the blacktopped driveway. Yum. Moira can tell Sammi all about dance class. Sammi keeps insisting that she will NOT go to the place that her friend goes to, but that's the one I'm signing her up for.....
