"You have a strong boy.."

*Some how this post got deleted.. I hate you right now Blogger! So lets see if I can remember everything!*

Allen had his 4 month well visit yesterday and he is doing great! When we got there, all of the nurses could not believe how big he has grown and how cute he is :) We were called into a room and the nurse weighed and measured him then told us that Dr would be in soon :) While we were waiting, Allen thought the paper was a nice tasty treat..


Weight: 15lbs 1.5oz (75th%)
Length: 26.5 inches long (95th%)
Head: 42cm (50%)


Dr came in and checked him out. She said that his skin is looking a lot better and that we should just keep doing what we are doing! We bathe him with Aquaphor Baby Wash and Moisturize with Eucerin Intensive Care Lotion. We talked about his head and face. He has had Torticollis and favors his right side. He does not like his head turned to the left. I had also told her about my concerns with his face looking droopy. She told me that he does in fact have a mild case of Plagiocephaly. His left side of his face is a little lower than his right and his left eye lid won't open as big as the right. She is going to put a referral in for P.T. and hopefully he will be approved. The exercises at home are not fixing his Torticollis so its now on to therapy. Other than his head/face, he is definitely ahead of the game and is pretty advanced... He showed her how he can sit on his own and gave her lots and lots of smiles.. Such a little flirt!



Then it was on to the dreaded shots.. The nurse came in and gave him his Oral Roto Virus and he did great! I layed him down and he took the first shot like a champ... The next two were a whole different story.. He flipped his lid. But right after the nurse put the band-aids on him, he was fine. Mommy's little trooper!!



Our next appt is in July for his 6 month appt! We will see Dr sooner if he gets approved for Therapy, though!

He's so cute! What a strong/big boy. I can't get over how light his hair and eyes are now.
Good luck getting PT! It really helped Elliot {he had torticullus and a bunch of other "issues"} and depending on how his evaluation goes next month, he might be getting another one {and an occupational therapist} again. I'm sure they'll be able to work with him.
I really need to try the aquaphor baby shampoo- I keep forgetting to buy it!
