We had your four-month check-up today and the doctor says you’re looking great. She described you as happy, alert, and curious, which I do think sums you up pretty well. She also proclaimed that you have your dad’s eyes; she said that they will almost certainly be brown.
The biggest surprise was finding out that you are getting tinier and longer. We knew you were skinny and tall, and I have been realizing that you’re quickly outgrowing the 0-3 month clothes, but I had no idea you were in the 90th percentile for length, while just the 10th percentile for weight. Although I do realize that these metrics are no real precursors or indicators of what size you’ll be when you’re grown, your dad and I still had some fun tonight imagining what you may become if you end up being really tall. I guessed long jumper, he said WNBA star. What do you say?
