This morning, while it was -8 degrees, the Cox family bundled up for Shep’s 4 month check up and immunizations.
13.95 lbs (25%) — aah, to be 4 months again!
27″ long (90%)
still 100% cute!
Shep’s ready to move to solid foods so tomorrow morning we’ll be trying rice cereal—yummers!
The Doc says we also have to get Shep checked for internal hemangiomas because he has more than 5 around his little bod (which tend to go away with time and are really not much to worry about) he is at a higher risk of developing them internally (no good!). So we’ll be bundling up again Monday morning for ultrasounds of his head and abdomen at Childrens’ West.
All in all it was a good check up. Shepard is strong and happy and growing and has great lung capacity…as evidenced by extreme howling during his four shots! Of this, we took no pictures, but you can check out our recent visit to the Como Conservatory over —-> under Flickr.
