Calvin had his 4-month check-up on Wednesday with Dr. Haugen. He is now 26 inches long, weighs 15 pounds, 15 ounces and his head is 44 centimeters around. At two months he was in the 90th percentile in each category, but now he’s in the 95th in length and head size and has dropped to the 75th in weight.
So we have a tall, skinny, big-headed boy. Here he is, a little irritated about something. Oh, and yes, that is a cloth diaper. And yes, it is ridiculously overstuffed – he was about to go to bed.
Here are two of his hard-earned circus band-aids from his four shots. He took the first shot like a man but had a hard time after that.
Since he is so big, he thought that last night was a great time to start sitting at the dinner table with the family. He even talked his dad into sharing a little tomato sauce with him.
Grins commented about some pictures of Maggie with her band-aids, so I dug them up to share. These are actually from her 2-month shots, so it’s even more pitiful. I don’t think we took any pictures of Calvin’s 2-month shots…it looks like Maggie was wishing we weren’t taking any of hers.
Maggie had fancy-pants name-brand band-aids instead of generic circus ones…looks like Garfield and Bugs Bunny. But instead of Fuzzi Bunz she’s stuck with some saggy diaper. It wouldn’t be fair to have the nicer band-aids AND diapers.
