Poor Alison. She had been fussy on Wednesday going into Thursday and we couldn't figure out what was wrong. She is always so happy and smiley, so we knew something was up. She had a well child check scheduled for Friday, but on Thursday I called and moved it up to 3:10 later that day.

First off the doctor couldn't believe how big she was! We were so proud of our little chubby cheeked, double chinned baby! She is getting rolls on her legs and we love it! Well, we came to find out that she has an ear infection in her left ear. Add shots to that too and she was not such a happy camper at the end of the appointment. However she did awesome with the oral immunization, no spitting up at all this time! She is on amoxicillin and already today she is acting so much better and happier.

She is making her move on the charts! Here are her 4 month stats:
length: 24 1/4 in. 46% (up from the 5% at 2 mos.)
weight: 12 lbs. 6 oz. 22% (up from 4% at 2 mos.)
head: 15.6 in. 13% (up from 2% at 2 mos.)

Last night for our anniversary we ended up eating at The Garden in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. We had never eaten there and had the early bird special. We both had steaks. Yummy! It was fun to have a view of the SL temple and think that 5 years ago we were getting married there!

Too bad about the ear infection. That is one thing that Brooke has never had (at least I don't think she has). It doesn't sound very fun. I think Brooke was like 14 lbs at her 4 Ali is putting on the weight almost as fast as Brooke did! :)
