4 Month Checkup

I took off from work today to recover from watching the election results and to take Lydia to the doctor for a routine checkup.  She is now FOURTEEN pounds and 24 inches tall, putting her in the 50th percentile for her age!  She started life at 5 pounds, 19 inches and the 3rd percentile.  50% is PERFECT, above 50 is bigger than average and below is smaller than average, but my baby is JUST RIGHT (at least at the moment)  The doctor said she is doing great, she is proportionate for her height and weight and we don't have to come back for two more months.  

I, on the other hand needed an entire day and two naps to recover from staying up watching the election results.  Of course all those Obama Mamas (Bahama Mama only made with blue liquor) contributed to my need to recover.  Either way, congratulations on your victory President Elect Obama!  Congratulations on your 14 pounds Lydia!  Congratulations on staying up past 8:30 pm to me!
