Kara is 4 months old!

Kara had her 4 month doctor appointment today. She weighs 11 lbs 7 oz and is 23 1/4 inches long. Definitely growing...but still our little Kara! We are able to start feeding Kara a small amount of rice cereal, but the doctor wants us to increase Kara's intake of formula. Kara is now up to 5 ounces of formula at every feeding. She received the same four shots that were given to her at 2 months. Kara cried a lot, but she calmed down pretty quickly. Unfortunately, she developed a high fever as a reaction to the immunizations. We've given her a sponge bath, and her pediatrician said we need to give her a dose of Tylenol every 4 hours. Yes...even while she's sleeping. So, tonight is going to be a long night. :-( We're supposed to call the doctor in the morning and let her know if Kara still has a fever. The good thing is that even though Kara isn't feeling her best, she's still eating well and has eaten at least two, 5 oz bottles today. Kara has also played a little under her activity gyms! In fact, she was pretty happy, and gave mommy lots of smiles during her sponge bath. The first two pictures are of Kara eating rice cereal for the first time--and she really seemed to like it! The last two show Kara sitting on daddy's lap and playing with her Dumbo toy!
