When Mom was here, Nora was extra fussy and she said, "Obviously, you're not feeding her enough." We had our 4-month visit today, and I think her assessment is false.

Wt: 17 lbs, 3 oz (99th percentile)
Length: 26.6 in (99th percentile)
Head size: 16.5 in (70th percentile)

Mom's solution to Nora's fussiness: solid foods. Here's Nora's introduction to solids. She was perplexed, at best. By the end, Mom was putting the food in her mouth and then forcing her head back in hopes that the food would just slide down her throat.

The doctor said she looks great except for the fact that she can't roll from her front to her back. I think she just got too big too fast and her muscles just couldn't keep up.

She looks happy and healthy to me. Is that healthy glow the reason for the post title? Because I originally thought you were going to tell us that ionized particles from the sun were hitting her and were creating an unearthly glow around her crib.

Are you just nursing her? Maybe she was just gassy....

She does look very happy, cute and healthy and you guys obviously don't have to worry about the small head thing.
