Doctor appointment

The beast finally had her 4 month check up yesterday. She weighs 16 pounds and is 25 inches long. She's in the 90th % for weight, the 75th for height and the 90th for head circumfrince.

The doctor said I could start her on cereal if I wanted to but I think I'll hold off another month or so. Breastfed babies don't really need the extra iron that cereal gives them until 6 months so if I start her at 5 months she'll be ok. I'm just thinking that there's no reason to rush solid foods. She seems so young! (Joseph was having cereal towards the end of his 3rd month.)

Keep your fingers crossed for Mr Joe. We're trying to get him into this charter school in town. They have year round school with all day kindergarten. It's looking pretty good right now but it can't hurt to have a few extra positive thoughts put out there. We won't find anything out until early to mid March. If this doesn't work out then we'll send him to the local public school this year and register him for the charter school for first grade.

Here's picture of Elle just for the hell of it.
