We had a great check up at the doctor this afternoon. Catherine Ellis is right where she needs to be and Dr. Farr is very pleased with her progress. As always, we waited a while, but at least we have a gorgeous view of Birmingham while we wait.
They weighed her first and she was so excited -- something about being on a changing table type of surface. The nurse asks us a series of questions like, does she roll over to one side, laugh, smile, kick, etc. Well Catherine Ellis did all of these on the scale and it tickled the nurse...she said what every parent longs to hear "Wow, she's doing a lot for a 4 month old!" Of course we know our child is advanced, but it's good to have it validated from someone outside of our family. haha!
Here are her stats:
Length - 24 inches
Weight -12.8 lbs
Head - 16 inches
She's currently in the 20th-50th%...Dr. Farr says she's looking great!
