4 Months (minus one day)

Today we went in for our 4 month check up, one day shy of Junah's 4 month birthday.  Here are our stats:

Height - 26.5 inches (94%)
Weight - 18 pounds 8 ounces (97%)
Head Circumference - 45 centimeters (98%)

The doctor says we're doing a great job.  I say, child, you got your father's head.

We spoke about when to introduce solid foods which I am not at all in a hurry to do.  The doctor said that as the baby grows, his needs will increase and so will milk production.  However, milk production growth is not indefinite so once his needs exceed production, his weight will start to taper or he will begin to act in a way that shows us he needs more food, and then we'll get to solids.  Sounds good to me.
