4 Month Doctor Appointment

I can't express how well our doctor's appointment went today. The doctor was very impressed with Aaron. He said it was a perfect exam. Aaron has hit all of his milestones and the doctor was extremely pleased with how vocal and social Aaron is.

Aaron is a big baby. As soon as the doctor walked in he said, "he's long". And he was. He is 27 inches which is the 97th percentile. He is 15 pounds, 10 ounces which is the 65th percentile for weight.

Aaron is growing and changing before our eyes! Every single day brings something new. And - OH! - he is SO much fun! He is a Very, Very happy baby and such a JOY! He is smiling all of the time and is a very easy going, patient baby. And he just has so much fun with everything. He is 'talking' up a storm and he's kicking his legs like it's going out of style. He's started reaching for things that catch his eye and he tries to get to things. He hasn't figured out how to be mobile yet, but he sure wants to be. He is making his jumper bounce like crazy and he can spend oodles of time under his activity gym, but he also loves just sitting on Mama's lap telling her all of his thoughts and concerns. He is fun, fun, fun.One of my favorite things right now is our babysitter, Brooke. She comes on Tuesday nights for date nights. I LOVE her. Even better, Aaron LOVES her. He really, really loves her. When we get home she is holding him and he is perfectly content with that. He doesn't even try to reach for Mama. That is pretty unusual if I am in the room. Brooke plays with Aaron and they have such a good time. And he is so good for her. She says he doesn't fuss at all and he eats for her and goes down to sleep for her. It is so nice to be able to go out and not worry about how Aaron's doing!

He does look very happy! In the second pic, it looks like he's talking to us. And I see that in the one picture he's visiting with the baby in the mirror!
So glad the doctor's appt. went well--of course he's impressed with our Aaron!

Love---OH mom/gma
