Well, today was a bittersweet day. Cheyenne had her 4 month checkup today and we were able to go back to Dr. Raj, who is the doctor that Cheyenne saw up until she was 2 months old. I absolutely love her!! She is so sweet and wonderful with Cheyenne and she is the kind of doctor that makes you feel like your child is her favorite or only patient. That's the kind of doctor everyone should have.
When she came in the room, she said "Cheyenne!! I am so glad you are back!! I have missed you so much!!" She said how precious and beautiful she was and before we left she was loving on Cheyenne and she said "I love you baby girl" She always holds and loves on her when we go in for a visit and I just love that!!
Anyway, on to the visit...
Cheyenne is absolutely perfect!! Dr. Raj said she looks great and is right in line with everything for her age. She weighs 15 lb. 3.4 oz. which is in about the 80th percentile. Her length is 1' 11.43" which is in about the 15 to 20th percentile. And her head circumference is 16.54" which is in about the 75th percentile. So she is exactly where she should be!! Dr. Raj was very pleased with her size and her development. She was actually surprised that Cheyenne skipped turning from tummy to back and started with back to tummy.
She said to start giving rice cereal twice a day and to hold off on pureed vegetables and fruits until about 6 months.
She did get 4 vaccinations today. She got 3 shots and 1 oral vaccine. She cried when she got the shots, but as soon as it was over, she stopped crying. She was such a good girl.
So we go back in 2 months for her 6 month visit. She will get more vaccinations and be able to start baby food other than cereal. We'll see how she changes between now and then.
