I just realized that I never did an update after Abbi's 4 month doctor appointment on Friday. So here goes!

She's still a big girl, weighing in at 16 pounds, 1.5 ounces. She is 26 inches tall. That puts her in the 96th percentile for height and 90th percentile for weight. The doctor told me that, although she weighs a lot for her age, it's nothing to worry about at all since she is so tall. It's all proportionate. In fact, he was quite happy with her growth.

All went well. We had to do more shots, which is never fun (for Abbi or me!) but she was a trooper and stopped crying after a few minutes. I actually wish I had my camera with me, because she made the funniest face when the nurse was giving her the oral vaccine. She much prefers the taste of milk!

I've also been asked a few questions in my last few posts, so I thought I'd answer them here.

1st - a few people asked how Max is with Abbi. He is really good. In fact, he loves her so much that he tries to kiss her too much and we have to make him stay back! I can tell that he is still a little jealous at times, but I try to give him lots of love and attention when I'm not tending to the baby.

2nd - Ryley asked about the butcher I posted about in my Zupas post. As far as prices go, I think they are pretty reasonable. Maybe not as cheap as Costco, but the quality is amazing. So delicious - now I wish we had bbq'd steaks for dinner!

3rd - Abby asked about the monthly onsies. I stole the idea from here, and they are pretty easy to make in Photoshop. But if you don't have Photoshop, I'm not quite sure! I'm not familiar with any other programs, so I'm not sure how difficult they would be in a different program. Sorry Abby!

HOLY COW!! I love those chubs!! :)
Miles's 6 month appt is on the 23rd and I dont think he'll even hit 15 lbs.. She could totally beat him up! :)
But he still has a lot of reflux issues that are keeping him too skinny..

On a side note.. are you like me and totally proud of that chub?? I dont know what it is but I'm completely selfish of my baby's fat.. Just knowing that every ounce of my baby came from me!! And only me.. I dont ever want to start solids because I'm too selfish! :) I love knowing he's made from only me.. It might even be another month or two before we try solids.. Actually I keep putting it off saying I want to feed him stuff from the garden so I know its safe and organic.. It's a good excuse right??

We'll have to make a day to drive down to that butcher.... It's probably very worth it...

Oh, the thighs. I love them. They are so munchable.

Sounds like your little girl is really thriving!

Love the chubbs.

That's okay; I appreciate the response!

Do you have a full version of PS? Or just elements? It's an INVESTMENT, phew. And since I'm camera shopping - I'd rather get the camera first. (Mind telling me if you have perhaps a Canon or Nikon and why you went with what you got? I'm thinking Canon 40D.)

But I can wait for PS. There will not be another kid any time soon. HA.

WOW...she is big...but like your doc said all proportional! That's the most important. My friend has a baby that just turned 4 months and he's 24 inches and 12 pounds 5 we think he's going to be short and skinny! Abbi will be a tall beauty!
