Yesterday, I took Ethan to his four month check-up. Dr. Shapiro was gone for Easter vacation, so we saw Dr. Zarate (pronounced like karate). She's actually the first pediatrician to have examined Ethan in the hospital.
We did the routine visit, first getting weighed and measured. His weight was a whopping 16 1/2 lbs, length was 26 1/2 inches, and head circumference was 17 1/2 inches. Ethan is still right around the 90th percentile! Yowza!
After that we met with Dr. Zarate who checked him over and said he's doing great. She suggested we start Ethan with rice cereal soon. I can't wait to see his face when he tries it - he just loves eating!
Ethan also had to get four vaccinations - three shots and one oral. Poor little guy, but he seemed to perk up pretty well for the rest of the day. I'm so glad that he's a happy baby!
