Doctor's Appointment

Miss Lucy had another round of immunizations today. She nearly broke Dad's heart when that first shot was given. What a sad cry! We're home now and she's doing well; playing in her exersaucer and babbling incoherently (knock on wood). I hope that she stays like this, because I remember all too vividly what effect the last shots had on her.
Here are her stats for the month:
Head circumference-17 inches (90%)
Length-26 inches (90%)
Weight-16 pounds, 4 ounces (85%)
Dr. Cattaneo says that she's a very healthy girl and seems to be doing quite well. We talked about when to introduce cereal, and he recommended sometime in the fifth or sixth month, but no later than seven months. Apparently, babies are more prone to develop allergies and eczema if introduced to cereal and table food before three months and after seven. I'm glad I know that because I plan on waiting as long as possible. She's just so efficient on the breast that I know it's going to be more work switching her over.
Happy Baby; obviously before the shots.
