Cherry Tylenol.

Emma had her 4 month checkup today. She weighs 12 pounds 6 ounces and is 24 inches long. She is in the 22nd percentile for weight and the 40th for height. If you are not familiar with these percentiles, these numbers place her in a group of other babies her age to determine how she is developing compared to them. So, 78% of 4 month old babies weigh more than she does, and 60% of 4 month old babies are longer (taller) than she is. SO, she is small, but still within average range. Mommy will try not to worry about these numbers too much…
She also had shots today… her second round of them. She took them like a champion in both thighs. Poor baby… You would melt, too, if you saw that bottom lip tremble and stick out when she cries.
When I leaned in to pick Emma up earlier, she smelled like something I’ve never smelled on her before… and I liked it. I gave her some cherry Tylenol to help with fever from the shots. Some of it ended up on her face, and even though I wiped it off, I guess the scent lingered. Its weird to get close and smell anything other than lotion and milk on her. I kinda like her in cherry Tylenol.

Some like their babies in Johnson & Johnson or Aveeno Baby Lotions. I like mine in cherry.  I wonder if the baby companies will come up with cherry scented lotions….

  1. Denisse, hola tu no me conoces yo soy la mama de Edna Longoria, al ver la foto que me enseño Edna donde esta tu papa y tu abuelita mi corazon salto, sabes por que? pues tu abuelita Socorro y tu abuelito Manuel son mis padrinos de bautizo. Si, ellos nos bautizaron en Monterrey a Georgina mi hermana gemela y a mi. Hace mas de 50 años de esto, pero nunca los he borrado de mi corazon, ellos han sido como unos padres para mi, ellos fueron maravillosos con nosotras cuando mi padre murio. Nunca los he podido olvidar han sido las personas mas importantes en mi mente y corazon.Tu papa conoce muy bien a Rene mi hermano. No sabes el gusto que me dio ver a mi madrina Socorrito despues de tantos años. !La quiero mucho! Ojala que vuelva a verla un dia. Dale los besos mas inmensos que puedas. Escribeme por favor. Besos Yvonne
