Today Marley had her 4 month check-up. At 11:00 I started getting Marley in her carseat and got everything ready to go. I went to look for my car keys and low and behold I couldn't find them! Brian came home on his lunch yesterday because he had forgotten his wallet. He decided to take my car back to work since it gets better gas mileage. I just knew he forgot to put them back in my purse or hang them by the door. Sure enough I called him at work and they were in his coat pocket. Seriously?
Thank heavens I had already arranged for Teresa to go with us to the appointment, this way she could sit with Lily while we saw the pediatrician. I called Teresa and she was able to come and pick us up...Thank you!!! Brian met us at the doctors office and gave me my keys... At least this way I could get into the house!
Marleys appointment went great. She weighs 13 lb 1 oz (39%), is 24" tall (43%), and her head measures 16.14" (53%). At Lilys 4 month check-up she weighed 14 lb 12.5 oz and was 23.5". Marley got 2 shots and 1 oral drink. She only cried long enough for me to pick her up off the table which was only a split second. What a trooper!
We are to continue her Zantac (twice/day), Prevacid (once/day), and Levsin (up to four times per day). Hopefully she will be off all of this medication by 6 months of age. We will also continue the same formula as long as she doesn't develop any new issues. We can also keep trying with the cereal once a day then move up to twice a day at 6 months.
Marley is now getting herself onto her elbows and holding her head high when she is put on her tummy... So big!
