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.
