4 month old check-up with Mommy and Daddy

Published July 9, 2014 by The Hip Grandmother

 

Victoria Renee 7-6-14Today Victoria had her 4 month check-up! Everything went well and Victoria is developing just fine. We were pretty surprised that our little porker weighed in at 17 pounds! But the real surprise is that she is 25 inches which puts her among the 95 percentile of her peers. Hopefully she will be a tall woman and with the latest statistics, it’s a safe bet she will.

My daughter addressed her concerns about her head always pointing to the left. She told her that she mainly uses her left side of her body..discovering her left foot, extending her left hand and waving it in a psychedelic way. The doctor reassured her that all babies choose different sides of their bodies individually and she has chosen her left. Daddy, mommy and I all let out a comforting sigh. At least now we know that she is developing at a good rate and yes..I hope that she turns out to be a lefty.

We also found out that she has a birthmark behind her right ear on her head. This form of birthmarks are among 40,000 babies born each year. This birthmark is called Strawberry Hemangioma which appears shortly after birth. This type of birthmark soon disappears as the child reaches their seventh year of living. When my daughter observed it before, she was quite startled, thinking there was something growing on her child’s head. “Well, Miss Priss. You, yourself have a birthmark as well. Its called Nevus Sebaceous.” She really does.

As the day ended and my daughter was at work, Victoria was taking a nap in her crib. I’ve been wanting to set up her pack and play for so long. My bestie gave it to my daughter for Victoria. Fortunately I had time even though it kind of upset me. She is getting bigger. Growing upVictoria Renee 7-1-14. She isn’t that little newborn we brought home from the hospital. I let out a deep sigh and started to take apart the pack and play..or in my day (I’m really not that old) I have always called it a playpen. Isn’t that what it is?

  • Playpens are very useful safety-nets for adventuresome little ones. When my baby brother was little, Mom would put him in his playpen so that she could start to fix dinner. Daddy would get home from work, say “Did she put you in jail again, tyke?” and lift him out, and he would head straight to Mom in the kitchen. Every night! – Fawn

    • My mother used to tell me over and over to put my daughter in a playpen when she was little…just to get her used to it and it will keep her safe while I clean the house. Problem was that I never listened. Now I am trying to change that and offer the same advice to my daughter. I was extremely thick-headed when I was in my early 20s. Lol 😦

  • It is good that you have no problem with her if she turns out to be a lefty, you would think in this day and age that would always be the case but I remember my nephews paternal grandmother saying she hoped he wouldn’t be a lefty like his mum is because that is wrong I couldn’t believe she said that wrong how could it be wrong but she thinks being a lefty is wrong just another reason I don’t like the woman
