Alison had her 4month appt yesterday and she is now a whopping 15lbs & 24 inches long! She is a chunker! So in four months she's gained 10lbs and 8 inches. Wow. She is doing ok on her development too. She is pushing up when on her tummy and very talkative, but isn't quite grabbing for things yet, which is ok with the pedi because of her adjusted age.
The only issue is that her head is flat. The pedi said more tummy time, but honestly, I don't know if we can do any more than what we are doing. We let her nap on her tummy, she gets tummy time throughout the day at the sitters, we put her in different seats all the time so she is constantly in a different sitting position, etc. I don't know what else to do so I went out and bought a bumbo seat. Hopefully she'll start sitting soon and that will help. I feel bad though, like I've done something wrong.
All in all, she is doing really well and I feel so blessed to have her.
