Adelie had her 4 month check-up yesterday. Our over-achieving grower has slacked a bit over the past 2 months. She is no longer in the 100th percentile for her length. Her 26.5" puts her in the 95th percentile while her 14 lbs, 5 oz lands her in the 38th percentile. The rest of her check-up went well. Adelie is right on track. She handled her immunizations like a champ with 15-20 seconds of crying followed by smiles for the nurse before she left the room. And Staley was a little jealous that Adelie got 2 princess band-aids AND an Abby Cadabby Band-Aid.
All things considered, it was a successful check-up. Adelie continues to grow and develop like she should. The immunizations were not too traumatic. And the 95th percentile is still admirable. Not quite a perfect score, but still in the solid 'A' range.
