So Theo had his 4-month checkup today. Turns out he's a Jumbo Baby, just as we thought. For measurements, Theo clocked in at:
17 lbs 11.5 oz = 90th percentile
26.25 inches = 90th percentile
head circumference 44 cm = 90th percentile
The percentile means that he's larger than 90% of other babies his age. So as far as 90's across the board, he's nothing if not consistent! He's in excellent health and took his shots like a man. Crying, that is, but was quickly soothed in Daddy's arms with a bottle.
Last month I posted about a little girl, Rowan, who was battling leukemia and undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Theo and I met up with her and her wonderful family at Disneyland just before her transplant.
I am profoundly saddened to say that last week, Rowan passed away. She contracted pneumonia and her weakened immune system was not able to overcome it. My heart is just broken for Rowan's family. If you'd like to see some pictures from our trip to Disneyland, click on the picture below, and please keep Rowan's family in your thoughts and prayers.
Theo's laughing now, and we have video evidence!
