Well Check

Tuesday was the day for the dreaded 4 month well check visit with Dr. Flowers.  I say dreaded because well check means shots...ugh :(  Ava weighed in at 14 pounds 3 ounces and is now 25.5 inches long!  She is getting big right?!  Dr. Flowers says her growth is right on track and he is very proud of her hitting milestones early or right on time.  Of course he wanted to see her roll over and as soon as he laid her on the table she poked her lip and started to scream...that's my girl :)  He finally addressed her eczema issue that had turned into a big RED rash taking over her body little by little, and I am very happy to say that the steroid cream he gave to us has worked wonders, and she looks like she never had eczema!  Our Bug has also had issues with her sinuses since she was about three months old and Tim was told at an earlier visit that she was too little for any medication.  Dr. Flowers told me that this wasn't true and told me to go get her some over the counter Zyrtec or Claritin and switch her to a soy based formula.    Other than that she is perfect!  
She loves to sit in her high chair and watch the Braves play baseball.

We use Dr. Flowers, too. I think he is a great doctor. He is so calm, even when Libby chooses to use her pipes and scream when she sees him. Glad Ava is growing and healthy! You are blessed!
