"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes-and ships-and sealing-wax-
Of cabbages-and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings."

- The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carrol
(From Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

Four Month Stats

Yesterday was Abbey's four-month well check. Here's the update on her latest stats:

Weight = 13 pounds, 9.9 oz - 51st percentile (she's almost doubled her birth weight!)
Height = 25 3/4 inches long - 94th percentile (one tall baby!)
Head = 16 1/4 inches diameter - 61st percentile (big brain)

So, she is tall, smart and skinny.

Vaccinations were next, and they're never ever fun. Last night we had a sad, sleepy, uncomfortable baby on our hands who slept restlessly through the night.  Things weren't much improved today. She spiked a 100+ degree temperature mid-morning, and dished out several meltdowns over what we do not know. I raced home from the office to be with her after being at my desk for a little over an hour and fifteen minutes. So glad I commuted that 45 minutes in today.  I was glad to come home and love on her, though. Abbey is definitely the daughter of two musicians. The only comfort she'd find today was in a song or baby Tylenol.

We got the green light to try solid foods. She swallowed maybe five spoonfuls of baby cereal this evening, making funny faces between each bite. She's not quite sold. We'll try again in a couple of days.

And that's the scoop. She's down for the night now, and Mommy is ready for an adult beverage to take the edge off the day.

Oh, barkeep???
