My 4-Month Checkup

Story told by: Henry

I’m almost four months old, so I had my checkup with Dr. Mike today.

I was all smiles and ready for my appointment!

My sister read a magazine while we waited for Dr. Mike to arrive.


And I spent time looking cute. It was tough work!



Dr. Mike said that I am a healthy boy! Here are my measurements:

Height: 26 inches (90th percentile)…Lainey was also 26 inches at this age

Weight: 17 pounds, 14 ounces (greater than 95th percentile)…Lainey was 16 pounds, 6 ounces at this age

Head Circumference: 17 1/2 inches (greater than 95th percentile)…Lainey’s head measured at 17 3/4 inches at this age


Once Dr. Mike was finished with my checkup, he gave Lainey a sticker. What?! I did all of the hard work, and Lainey gets a sticker? Something doesn’t seem quite right here.


I had to get three shots at the end of the appointment. I cried for a bit, but it wasn’t long before I was back to my normal, happy self. I’ll see you in two months Dr. Mike!
