Growth update

The Dude turned 4 months old on Tuesday. Yesterday he had his 4-month pediatrician's appointment, and the numbers are:

25" long (70th percentile)
15 pounds, 7 ounces (90th percentile)

So he's entirely caught up from being a preemie and he'll continue to pass the other kids. He got my genes, it seems, when it comes to size.

In an interesting but trivial coincidence, David is exactly 1/3 of a Josh in height now. He's 2'1", I'm 6'3". He also got stuck with more needles yesterday, which left him very unhappy and quite a handful during the evening. He actually had a tough night - we put him to bed at 9, and he was up for a diaper change at 4 and for a meal at 5. Most nights he goes to sleep between 9 and 10, and then he sleeps until between 7 and 9 AM.

I think the shots threw him off a little.
