4 month check up

Our big guy gained a whopping 5 pounds in two months! He was 14 lbs, 1/2 oz and 24 1/4 inches long. He is in the 40% for weight and 30% for height. Despite looking like he has a big head, he is only 20% for head - go figure! Nice jump up the chart from 5% all around at 2 months.

We upped his Zantac meds since he has been fussy again with feeds the last few weeks and choking on his bottles a little. We are starting cereal but will be introducing new things slowly as he has shown an intolerance to formula in the past and is rather finicky about his milk. I am hoping he is just picky and doesn't have food sensitivities.

We also will have a brain ultrasound scheduled before his 6 month check up. If you remember he had a tiny cyst in his brain - the size of the tip of a pen. Nothing to worry about, but just following up to make sure it is gone. I'm not sure what it means if it isn't gone and am determined not to google it as I don't want to spend the next two months stressed out.
