Yesterday my little man had his last Synagis shot. Less than 10% of all suspected cases of RSV are proving to actually be the dreaded illness. This means that in areas where there is little-no RSV reported, we should be safe to live like we have a normal baby boy!
He also weighed in at 11 lb 4.5 oz (though last time that scaled weighed him 2.5 oz lower than his pediatrician's scale the day before) and was 22 3/8 inches long. I can't believe how quickly he's growing!
He hasn't done much babbling/cooing -- just a couple of noises a day out of him. It still frightens him when he makes a sound and he looks around confused. Tuesday night he actually giggled two times, but again got that frightened look on his face (the look that says, "What the heck was that???") and hasn't done it since no matter how hard we try. The most we can get is a huge smile, with little squinty eyes and shoulders scrunched up. He'll get there though.
The first week of May I will be filling out a questionnaire from the early intervention office in our county. Basically, we have to attempt several different tasks with him and see what he does -- things like handing him a toy and seeing how long he holds it for and whether or not he tries to put it in his mouth, placing a toy in front of him and seeing if he'll reach for it, etc. I went through it the other day just for fun and in all but one category he falls in the "see a specialist" category. Granted, these are tasks that should be done by a 4 month old and he's only 11 weeks adjusted, so we've got 5 weeks until he should be able to do them. Really hoping we get there by then.
