4 months old!

On Wednesday, Lily turned 4 months old!
I seriously cannot believe she's already 4 months.

She had her pediatrician appointment actually that very day.
I'd been anxious to see how much she's grown in the last 2 months!

She's weighed in at 12lbs., 14oz...
...which puts her at 30% for her weight.
Considering during her early weeks she was at 3%, she's come a long way.

She's 24.75 inches long (55%).

And well, her head measures at 42.2cm which is in the 80th percentile!
It's that big for her growing brain, of course. :)

Her heart sounded great. ♥

She LOVES Dr. Kelly! ♥

Dr. Kelly was really pleased to see how much Lily has grown and how she's developing.
She said Lily has the strength of what she typically sees in a 6-9 month old. :)

She's had an umbilical hernia...her belly button REALLY popped out after her 2 month visit to the doctor and it's still out (you can see in some of the pictures), but it's healing on it's own and no need for surgery.
At one time it was probably out a good inch, maybe an inch and a half! 
Daddy used to call it her turkey belly timer. :)

It's hard to believe that it's already time that our baby girl can start eating rice cereal and once she gets the hang of that, onto to veggies. I truly just cannot believe she's already old enough.
A couple days ago, even Andrew said to me, "Mom, I don't want her to get any bigger than this!" 
She's just at such a fun age where she laughs and smiles and 'talks' with everyone.
 I love that Andrew is even loving each moment!

Lily was pretty smiley and happy after being seen by Dr. Kelly who gave her an A+! 

Next up: vaccinations.
The first which is the oral...Lily takes with no problem at all.

Then she had to get 2 shots...
She was NOT a fan. :(
One in each leg.
I cried this time...and then was hit with a memory of Andrew getting shots when he was 12 months...
remembering that the older they get the harder it is...
They look at you with this look of "why are you letting them hurt me?"
And then I cried harder.

But rest assured, on that Thanksgiving Eve,
was back to her normal happy self
very quickly. :)
