Baby Kara started to become more mobile now. She now can scoot herself to get a toy that's just out of her reach. Her legs are the main driving force for her movement. She scoots like a warm. Her head dives down towards the floor, while she pushes with her legs. Then she picks up her head and reach out for the object. The cycle continues until she reached the object or destination of interest.

As soon as baby Kara turned 4 months old, mama Lyanne was ready to feed baby Kara her first solid meal, rice cereal. Of course baby Kara was also ready as evidence by her drools, sucking fingers when she's hungry, mouthing and licking toys or anything that's within reach of her hands. Baby Kara still has the natural reflect to push food out of her mouth with her tongue, but you can tell she liked the cereal. Last week, mama Lyanne only fed 1-2 teaspoon of rice cereal. This week, baby Kara is able to eat 3-4 teaspoon. Eventually, she'll graduate to tablespoon to ounces portion and hopefully get into vegetable puree by her 5 month birthday.

After that, all of the aunties got together to take pictures with auntie Katherine including mama Lyanne. Then came the uncles with their wacky faces followed by the entire Wong family with uncle Jayden. And of course more family pictures with Great Grandma and Great Auntie Van (picture not shown).
Uncle Jayden loves to play with baby Kara every time mama Lyanne bring her by to visit. His newest skill is giving people kisses (he still need more practice). Basically, he kisses people by bringing his cheeks up against the other person's cheek. Just at that time, baby Kara decided to show uncle Jayden the correct way of giving a kiss! Hehe.

Baby Kara seemed to either know she's going to get shots or maybe she remembered the doctor's face and nurse from her 2-month appointment that she cried everytime Dr McCormick came close to examine her. Some might say that it could stranger anxiety, but mama Lyanne doesn't think so because baby Kara didn't cry when Dr McCormick played with her, including the nurse. But as soon as they started to do examinations and put baby Kara on the examine bench, baby Kara started to cry. And when mama Lyanne picked her up off of the examine bench and have the doctor examine baby Kara in mama Lyanne's arms, baby Kara would tolerate it, but she still led out a whining sound. After the doctor finished her examination and left the room, the nurse came in with a tray containing the shots. This time, baby Kara had to be placed on the examine bench. She didn't cry at first, but when the nurse gave her the oral vaccination for rotavirus, baby Kara cried and cried, as if she knew that this was a precursor to the shots. If you remember, at the 2-month appointment, baby Kara enjoyed the oral sugary syrup, slurping at each drop in her mouth. But now, she wouldn't care to have it and just wanted out. After the oral syrup, baby Kara got her DTap and HIB vaccine. Like always, baby Kara led out a loud painful cry and fell asleep as soon as the car started driving.
