Four month doctor visit

Ava had her four month check up today. Her stats were as follows:

  • Weight - 15 lbs 14 oz. - 90th %ile
  • Length - 26 1/4 in. - > 95th %ile
  • Head - 16 in. - 25-50th %ile
So, all in all, she's just chugging along. We have the go ahead to start on cereal, but I'm going to put that off for just a couple more days. She didn't feel well and Dr. Fred obviously noted that. He thought he heard a little rattling going on in her chest and so we got an antibiotic as well as a cough medicine. He said that what she has was probably just viral, but wanted to prescribe the antibiotic as a precaution. I was fine with that as I'd rather this cold not turn into pneumonia or something worse. So, that's where we stand as of today. If she isn't noticeably better in 2-3 days, I have to take her back. I don't really want to start her on the cereal while she's starting some new medicines. Hopefully, we'll be able to give the cereal a try this weekend.

A very upset little girl at the doctor

The video I took the other night of Ava talking just won't upload, so I took another of her last night. You can see that she doesn't feel well and you can somewhat hear how hoarse she is! Poor baby! Hopefully that antibiotic will get to work quickly!!


  1. Awhhh, her voice IS hoarse! I'm glad Dr. Fred gave her some med; I hope it starts working quickly! Once she starts feeling better, we need to get together. :)

  2. oh poor sweet baby! That sounds so pitiful! Caroline has had a couple little colds, but nothing that made her sound like that. I hope she feels better soon!

  3. So glad you got your blog list re-installed! I could have done it for you, though!

    Hope you like it all...I got the sidebar tags put on a little while ago.

    Let me know if I can help again!
