4 Month Checkup

Well technically he is 4 1/2 months but it is impossible to get appts. at my clinic. I just booked his six month and it will be right before he turns seven months. Oh well, I guess it doesn't really matter. Keegan checked out great. The doc confirmed that his hernia is healed and shouldn't be a problem again. Our official measurment confirmed that the bathroom scale doesn't really tell the truth for babies. He is 16lb. 8 oz. and 25 3/4 inches long. I just wanted to make sure he was catching up in length.
Keegan's shots went okay, he cried but stopped when I held him. He was in good spirits the rest of the day. However he was very fussy at bedtime so I did give him some T*ylenol. But I don't think it is helping because he popped back up at 11pm. Actually I can hearing him crying again now. Off to give the little guy some smooches.
