4 month checkup - growing like a weed

I will get to posting about last week's trip (promise!) but I wanted to give a quick update. Oliver had his 4 month well-baby checkup today, and three more shots. The doc's scale has him at 16 pounds, but our scale tonight said 15 pounds, 9 ounces. That's 4 ounces more than yesterday (so we may see a dip tomorrow) and just about a pound in the last 10 days. Since he started gaining weight on day 4 of life, he is still averaging one ounce per day. As for length, he's just about 25 inches long.

The shots were well, shots. Oliver handles them better than his mum. He was smiling again by the time I had him dressed. If you've met Oliver I'm sure you don't find that surprising.

Oliver celebrated all this by rolling over from his tummy to his back when we got home. He's very close to rolling from back to tummy. He gets about 80% then rolls back. Soon. Very soon.
