4 Month Checkup

Ouch!!!

Jonas had his 4 month doctor's appointment today. Aside from having to deal with the horrible shots, he seemed to handle it in stride. Dr. Bush was amazed with how much weight he has been packing on and even remarked that he almost didn't recognize him from the last appointment. He now weighs 13 lbs. 6.4 oz., which puts him in the 24th percentile for his age group. This is HUGE, considering that when he was born, he was in the 2nd percentile and at his last doctor's appointment, he was in the 7th percentile. We're keeping him on his "protein shakes" until he's at least 6 months. (It's actually Neosure formula, which has extra calories for preemies so they can "bulk up.)

Whatever doubts the doctors had early on, I think it's safe to say the kid has now figured out how to eat. Hallelujah!

4 months and counting!

I made a goal that I would take Jonas' picture every month next to his teddy bear. Even though he's small for his age, this has helped me see that he really is growing every day. Below are the pictures I've gotten so far:
3 weeks old
(What a little peanut!)


2 months old


3 months old


4 months old
(Finally, a smile!)
