The percentile charts, that is!! Crosby weighed in at 13 pounds 4 ounces. Too bad the nurse put that he was 13 pounds 8 ounces on his chart!!! That number had him in the 25th percentile. Technically speaking, he is not quite there but I am too lazy to do the math to figure out where he really is. So we will just go with what we've got! :) Seeing how he was only in the 8th percentile at his 2 month appointment, we are doing pretty good any way you look at it! He is currently 24.75 inches in length, which has him in the 46th percentile. That is only up 1% since February, as he was already in the 45th. And that little noggin of his is catching up as well. He had the largest jump there, moving from the 5th percentile to the 25th percentile.
As for his shots...they weren't nearly as bad as I was anticipating! Thank you Lord for sparing me heartache!!! He didn't seem to notice the first one and started to cry after the second. However, we were armed with bottle in hand, which soothed him almost immediately! Boy am I glad to have that behind us. We don't go back until he is 6 months...and I am realizing I forgot to make that appointment...
We got the all clear to introduce rice cereal. Fortunately for us, the Easter Bunny left a box in his basket! I am not sure how to work that into the mix. How much? In the morning or at night? Is it better to wait until 5 months...6 months? Of course I want to do everything just right. I have a little research to do on that one. Feel free to share your ideas/schedule/etc!!!
And, not to jinx things, but we have had 3 nights in a row of 10 hour sleep. Not me...but for Crosby. I have been getting 5-6 a least! He hardly napped today so I am thinking it is looking good for a 4th night. Come on Crosby...you can do it!!!! ...even though that is a long time to go without holding him in my arms... :)
