4 Month Stats

This morning, Norah had her 4 month check up at the pediatrician's, and here's her current stats:

Height: 25 inches (72 percentile)
Weight: 14 lbs, 2 oz (55 percentile)

I think it's funny that's she's above average for height since I'm so below average for height, so what height she's getting, it's coming from Jerry's side!

The rest of the appointment was good; she's healthy and on track with development, so the check up itself was uneventful. At the end, she did get a few shots, and because Jerry was busy at work today, he couldn't make the appointment which meant I had to hold her while the nurse tortured her with needles. It was awful: Norah cried and I nearly cried. But, it was fast, and by the time we got out of the exam room and up to the reception desk, Norah was calm and smiling at the receptionist.In other news, it's been pouring rain here since yesterday evening (the news said we got nearly a foot of rain last night!), and this afternoon, I was walking Norah and Scooter and some idiot car drove through a puddle right by us and splashed all 3 of us. Norah broke out in tears -- more out of shock than anything else -- and I had to pick her up and soothe her while giving the driver the finger. Seriously, it really pissed me off that someone would be so oblivious to us and so inconsiderate. If I hadn't had Norah and Scooter with me, I would have run them down and, and, and...hmmmm...giving them a thorough talking to? I don't know what I would've done, but I was pretty pissed at that car.

Which suddenly reminds me: I had a dream last night where I was fighting with someone and I have a distinct mental image of me wielding a baseball bat. Don'tcha ya hate when you only remember a small part of a dream? I wonder if I was fighting a regular person or if it was a zombie or something; and yes, fighting zombies is a regular dream repeat for me. And it seems that swinging a baseball bat is not an uncommon part of my dreams. Huh. Maybe if I'd had a bat with me this afternoon, that car-splasher would be sorry!

I think anybody that messes with Jesses is in bad trouble :-)

Her cuteness is growing like a weed!!

RunningLaur said...

I bet they would have thought twice about splashing someone else had you gone through with bat retaliation!

and I love Norah's little rolly polly legs :)

Jess said...

I can't believe Norah is 4 months old already! Oh my goodness!

And what a jerk. I can't believe that car splashed you all!

X-Country2 said...

A bat? That'll teach 'em for sure!

Katie A. said...

4 months! Already! She is beautiful!!! And I think you should totally carry a bat with you when your out walking with Nora. In case of a Zombie attack of course! :) Happy Weekend!

Betsy said...

I love the mental picture of you soothing your sweet baby and flipping off that driver at the same time. That is awesome.

Norah is adorable - I love that she is smiling in every picture. ;) And yay for healthy! Did your doc advise you start her on solids/cereal this month? It seems that most doctors start advising that at 4 months - and I've found that each set of parents that I've asked takes it different... some hold off on any solids until 6 months, others start at 4. I was going to go until 6 b/c I had it engrained in my head that that was what I was supposed to do. BUT we started solids at 4.5 months because we felt Lilly was ready - she was opening her mouth every time she saw us eat something! Just curious.

Oh my gosh she is cute! I love her little rolls on her legs.

I hate people for that very reason. I hope Karma comes and bites that driver in the ass.

Splashing a baby AND a cute doggy?!? That's just wrong.

Rude frickin' Floridians! Why does it not surprise me...

Cute pic of Norah in her Xmas bib too!

Badgergirl said...

Norah's adorable! And the driver? Rude!

shellyrm said...

Norah is so cute! I say that every comment but she is!

What an stupid driver. Grrrr! You should've had that baseball bat then! Okay, maybe not but I bet you'd have felt better if you could have taken a wack or two...at the car not the driver.

Amanda said...

She looks so precious in her little Santa hat. I would have given them the finger too..how rude to splash you guys! We got all that rain here in Charleston too yesterday. All of downtown flooded, it was a mess.

kelsalynn said...

I absolutely love this picture...she's just so stinkin' cute!! Man, how will you ever tell her "no" when the time comes?

Sorry about getting splashed...

MCM Mama said...

She's precious!

I would have been pissed at the driver too.

Crystal said...

That picture is so freaking cute. She has the best little smile there.

Firefly's Running said...

Sooo cute. She's going to be a very tall girl. Both of my kids were that way at her age and they are sooo tall for their age.

Southern Fried Girl said...

I'm sorry but I'm going to need one of those baby legs to gnaw on. Thanks.

Nikki said...

She is sooo cute Jess. Glad she survived her shots, Marcus just had his too and all survived. Phew!
