Checkup

Although she passed her 4 month mark more than two weeks ago, I took Aubrey to her 4-month checkup just yesterday. The results are in... my "tiny" baby weighs a whopping 15 lbs 3 oz! Holy moly! No wonder it's breaking my back to carry her around in the carseat carrier! Only 24 3/4 inches long. Puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and the 50th for length. I breed short chubby babies! :) And most recently on the list of new developments is the cutting of her very first tooth (as the pediatrician said when she placed her finger in Aubrey's mouth "oh wow, that's not subtle at all!) Yes my dear friends, I have early teethers and it is SO not fun. She has taken to biting when she's nursing and it makes mommy sad. Not only does she "bite" but she bites and pulls as if it's a chew toy! OUCH!! Brendan cut his first tooth a few weeks earlier than this. So I guess I could just be grateful that she put it off a few weeks... but I have no doubt that she too will have 8 teeth by the time she turns 1! Fortunately it hasn't seemed to cause her much misery... it's just mommy who is suffering. :(
