Peyton had his 4 month doctor's appointment on Friday. He got a clean bill of health but the Dr. did tell us to start feeding him rice cereal because he's a little underweight. She determined that he isn't putting on enough weight because he's so dang active!! He's 26 inches and 14 lbs, 2 ounces now. He's still the same percentile height but he dropped from 60th percentile in weight to the 38th percentile. This puts him in the 1% for height vs. weight (he's only heavier than 1% of other babies for his height!) Don't worry though (I'm looking at you, Grandma Higgs and Grandma Harris) - she said he's perfectly fine.

We started him on solid food on Friday and he picked up on it really quickly! It's done quite the number on his digestive system but I'm sure it will work itself out. I've included a video of his first time eating (you'll have to excuse all of the camera flashes - I was taking pictures while the video was going). I'll post another video of him eating today in a little bit (no camera flashes in that one).
