I believe I ordered the *large* baby

File under: Uncategorized

So, Greta had her four-month checkup today. Wow. She is a big baby. (Thanks for the newsflash, you say.) She is in the 95th percentile for height and the 86th percentile for weight. Specifically, she's 15 pounds and 5 ounces, and 25.75 inches long. This is definitely Pat Reed's child - in case anyone had their doubts! If not his, then maybe Robert Pershing Wadlow's. Niice.

Anyone want to take bets on when Greta will surpass me in height and/or weight?

Greta had her second round of immunizations today too. They went much better this time than last. She just handled them much better this time (didn't have convulsions, etc.) and I was better prepared as to what to expect. Pat came along this time for moral support.

So, Greta has been sleeping in her own room now for four nights. It's going all right so far. The biggest issue is that she is much more active in her sleep now. I'm not sure if it's because she has so much more room now or what. I check up on her a few times a night, and she has been actually spinning around in her crib to the point where she has been getting rug burn on her head. Is it still considered rug burn when it doesn't actually take place on a rug? Wikipedia says yes! Anyhoo, other than the acrobatics, things are going pretty well. It was certainly easier having her in our room, but the switch had to be made eventually, and I can only assume it gets harder as time goes on.

Oh! I forgot the best part. Greta gets to start solids now. If she loves food half as much as I do, she's going to be a happy girl.

We can't wait to see you tuesday! Greta is large and in charge! They really like to spread out in their cribs. Elise has been in her room for about a month and we find her in some very strange positions in the morning, then again, I find Mike Froehler in some strange positions in the morning...
