4 Month Check Up

We went to Ava's 4 month check up today.  We arrived at the doctor's office at 4:45 for our 5:00 appointment.  We left the doctor's office about 7:00.  He was running behind.  He gave us a $20 gift card to Chili's since we had to wait so long, though, so we were okay.  Ava weighed 15 lbs. 14 oz and was 24 and 3/4 inches long.  She is in the 90% for her height and weight, but she is the perfect height for her weight and the perfect weight for her height.  He approved of our new formula, and I've found I can buy it on diapers.com cheaper than the store and it's free shipping!  He also said that we can start feeding Ava solid foods.  She got three shots and one oral vaccine.  She didn't cry at all after the first shot, but her face sure did get red after the next two.  It didn't last long, though.  Micah also got a shot.  He got his flu shot, and he wasn't looking forward to it, but he was brave.  He actually said it didn't hurt at all...I had already tried to tell him that.  It really is one of the most painless shots I have ever had and I recommend it!!
