Too big. Too fast.

I took Olivia back to the doctor for a recheck this afternoon. Her four month check-up was scheduled for next week, so they rolled the two together…then asked us to come back for another recheck next week anyway. Oh well.

Her lungs sound good, and I think her cold is getting a bit better. They’re keeping her on the breathing treatments and another prescription to ensure the lung issues don’t return.

She weighed in at 17 pounds, 8 ounces, exactly what Ava weighed at her nine month check-up. (I’d like to tell you that I knew this off the top of my head, but it was my mom who had it written down.) Olivia was 26.5 inches long–she’s basically off the charts in both cases.

The nurse sent home a little pamphlet about month four–it started with a reminder that we should wait to start solids until six months. I confessed to starting them “a few days ago.”

The nurses agreed that she was still quite cute.


Bec: I’m going to engineer and market baby socks that don’t fall off. I’ll make a million dollars.

Bry: You could call them cankle covers.
