We just got back from our 4-month appointment with the doctor and here are your stats:
Weight: 6.72kg (14.8 lbs) which puts you at about the 75th percentile
Length: 67.5cm (26.6″) which puts you above the 97th percentile (what kind of giant did I give birth to?!?)
Head circumference: 39cm (15.4″) which puts you around the 10th percentile
*Percentiles are based on the WHO standards*
So. To recap: you are an extremely tall, well fed baby with a small head! The small head, you probably get from me as well as the well fed part (although, I am losing a bit of my extra weight! 🙂 ) The length, you either get from your Grandma’s side of the family or from your Papou’s side of the family.
It looks like you also have a bit of eczema on your eyelids and in one of your neck crease. 😦 I had noticed it before and it doesn’t seem to bother you at all, but it is quite red and dry-looking. The doctor recommended applying vaseline, but I’ll try extra virgin olive oil first. I’d like to delay the petrol product directly on your skin as much as I can! I’ve also ordered a natural body wash from Chartreuse and am waiting for the delivery and am using Burt’s Bees in the meantime. I hope it will work!
You’ve now been asleep for close to 2hrs (ever since we got back from the doctor) which is quite unusual for you! You did, however, skip a nap this morning due to our appointment, so I guess that makes up for it! Here is a picture of the 2 of us, on your 4 month anniversary!
