ZoZo's 4 Month



Our little ZoZo is definitely little. When I took her in for her 4 month check up, she only weighed a little over 10 pounds which dropped her to the 5-10% (from the 50%) for weight. Her pediatrician, who we really like & respect, suggested that I supplement with formula in addition to breast feeding so we can fatten her up. (I wish my doctor would tell me to have a milkshake after every meal).

We took her to the doctor today for a weight check (a week later) and she gained a pound-yea! She is sleeping better through the night and is even taking longer naps during the day. What a relief! I absolutely love this little gal and am so glad she is part of our family.

Oh, she is so cute! and petite... 10 lbs? wow. Geoffrey is the opposite of little. He is 18lbs now and off the growth chart for height! But he still doesn't sleep through the night either. :-)

She is so adorable, and so cute. I love tiny babies. Having two that were preemies, kept them tiny longer - maybe that is why. Call me if you need to go anywhere- I would love to sit her again!!!

10 pounds at 4 months?!?!? My little girl was over 10 pounds at 5 weeks! hahaha...she is still a cutie though.

What a cutie!! I hate the percentage thing of how they measure kids:) Our little one usually measures 50% in weight, but it was interesting how everyone that had larger percentage kids liked to brag that their kid was 90%, there is nothing wrong with her being a cute little petite doll:)
