Brooke's Four Month Check Up

Wednesday November 12 we went to Brooke's four month appt. She was up from 12 pounds 4oz to 15 pounds 2oz! She also grew an inch in length now charting at 24 1/4 inches long! She's in the 75-90% in weight and head circ. and 50% in length. We are officially started on rice cereal in the bottle now. That is something we never did with Lindsay either. It seems that Brooke takes 6-7 ounces of formula and then wants to eat again in 3 hours instead of 4-5. So the doc told us to beef it up a bit and add the cereal to the feedings! In another month or so we'll start trying to do some spoon feedings with the rice cereal. I can hardly believe we're already thinking about spoon feedings with her! Here are some cute pics of the girls and they once again loaded backwards on blogger...

mine have always loaded backwards so now I load backwards and they end up forwards ;-)

hey hey hey ... we have been putting ceral in our bottles only because of the acid reflux ... nasty stuff!
We still eat every 3 hours and not sleeping well at ALL!
AACK! Good luck with your ceral - the Avent bottle and nipple made for thicker fluids is best for us!

What cute pics of the girls! Good luck with the new feeding routine. Brooke is growing up too fast already!

I love that Lindsay is taking the role of big sister so seriously. :). She looks like such a pro already.
