3.5 Month Check Up


That cutie pie was such a little trooper this morning; who woulda guessed that just an hour before I took this picture he was being poked with two large needles? He actually screamed a bit longer than last time after today's round of vaccines, but I think his empty tummy fueled a lot of the screaming.

The pediatrician was very pleased with Harry's growth! He now weighs 13 pounds 6 ounces and is 25.25 inches tall. That's the 50th percentile for weight and holy cow.... 90th percentile for height! The doctor said he never would have guessed he was four weeks premature. With being so on track the doctor suggested we stop giving Harry NeoSure and switch to regular infant formula. Originally he suggested that he stay on it for nine or ten months. Hearing that we could switch was music to daddy's wallet!

After our appointment we swung up to Carter's to use that $10 rewards card we earned yesterday. Today is the last day of the BOGO free sale so I wanted to take advantage while we still could. I picked out a pack of white onesies and a pack of "rock star" onesies, both in the nine month size.

When we got home I make Harry four ounces of Similac Advance; the company sent us a sample tub while I was pregnant. He drank it really quickly and was hungry for more so I made him two ounces of NeoSure. We've still got about three cans of the NeoSure so we're going to slowly switch him over to the Advance so we don't shock his system too much.

I took another video of Harry yesterday. This time he was playing on his playmat, enjoy!
