Amadisto's big trip to the doctor for his four-month check up. Summer weather requires summer styles and our little man is styling for the season.
Here are Dr. Harkamal Randhawa's findings:
Weight: 16 pounds, 8 ounces
Length: 68 centimeters (Okay, I know it's crazy to mix measurement systems, but that's how it is in Canada. This equals 26.7 inches.)
Head: 45.8 centimeters (18 inches)
Overall Assessment: "He's big all over."
She mentioned that the "flathead" syndrome on his right side he has from the trauma of birth was still "remarkable," though it's been improved by the work we've doing with Dinah, the physical therapist. We have to keep up on the exercises, which is really hard, since the child screams horribly during them, though he's not being hurt at all. He just doesn't like being forced to do anything. Hey, like who does?
It brings tears to our eyes.
