4 month check up

Henry had his 4 month check up today. I was sort of dreading it because it was at 9am and he is usually crying for his nap by 845am. So we fed him a little earlier than usual and I cycled to the doctors so that he would nap on the way there, which he did. He was happy flirting with the girls at the desk, of course. He was happy waiting for the doctor (what brilliant person thought to put a mirror in the doctors room!?!). He was happy for the visit with the doctor. He didnt even cry when he had the medicine drops, not even for the first shot, but about a minute after the nurse stuck the needle in his second leg, all hell broke loose! He was just too tired by that stage. He cried, properly, for a good few seconds then his face went back to its normal colour and all was well. He slept on the ride home, even slept in the post office and he is asleep now. I have had a lovely long, hot shower and am going to enjoy the day of him sleeping it off. Im going to sit down and knit as Im get more and more excited, the closer I get to finishing his blanket.

Weight: 13lbs 13 oz
Height: 25.3 inches
Head Circumference: 43cm

Which begs the question, why do they do the length in Imperial units, but the head in metric?

Doctors comments, very very healthy baby!
