Andrew's 4 month Pediatrician Appointment

Well the doctor said Andrew is really making some progress. Andrew's head is still flat, however we had a helmet made for him. He has to wear this helmet for 3 to 4 months for 23 hours per day.
Andrew is now 24 1/2 inches long and weighs close to 13lbs 10 oz. He is making many noises now. His voice is inflecting as though he is copying sounds that he's heard before.
The doctor gave Andrew 4 shots for immunization. Two shots per leg. He hated it and cried so loud.

Our baby is doing GREAT. He's eating 5-6ozs per feeding..and still eating about every 3 hours. Every day he is more and more alert.

Yes indeed! He is getting heavier and heavier, and he now smiles. I love it! I can't wait for seeing him again.
