Elliot's four month check up

Elliot turned 4 months old on January 27th and she had her four month check-up with the pediatrician yesterday. She now weighs 13 lbs 10 oz and is 24 3/4 inches long which puts her in the 75% for her age in both height and weight. She got her immunizations (2 shots and one oral) which was hard for me but I did better than last time (i didn't cry this time) and Jaje came with me this time which helped. We also decided to start her on solids so we went and bought some rice cereal and we gave her some last night. She took to it pretty well, much better than I expected. Of course, it was a mess but it was still pretty great. I'm so proud of my baby. I can't believe how fast she's growing up! This morning, she woke up feeling sick and seemed a little warm so i took her temperature. Turns out she had a fever of 101.3. So i gave her some infant's ibuprofen which seemed to help. Attempts to feed her cereal in the morning didn't work out so i just gave her the bottle. Afternoon meal went a little better since she was starting to feel better. Now she's sleeping. Poor baby. I hate to see her feeling so weak and stuff. Even knowing that it's just because of the immunizations. Anyway, here are pictures from her first spoon-feeding cereal experience last night.

I completely understand sweetie, I know how hard it can be to just get out of the house and get shit done and i don't have a child- so i can only imagine. i can't wait though!!!

thanks darling!i look forward to reading your mail. love ya!

kisses from elliot and me :o)
aww, stuff like that makes me wish i was more involved and around when lilia was little. she's great to havea round now, like a little 2-year-old side-kick, - i was around a little bit, but its like i near-completely missed such a vital part of her existance- the part where its interesting to watch them on the brink of actually develloping-the act of changing- into a human with personality and character, not just a baby who has needs to be met but hasnt yet the ability to understand anything around them.
it really is amazing seeing how fast they grow and change. its so easy to miss out if you dont pay attention. thats why i wish jaje would spend more time with her. but he is so busy, he hardly even looks at her some days. its upsetting to me but i wonder if he even realizes or cares about what he is missing. i wonder if he too will come to regret the time he didnt get to spend with her.
i remember those days
good times.
mommy, daddy and baby......i can't tell you how much i miss those days.
you finally added me...thanks, hun.
