Dr. Russ told my parents at my 2 month check-up that I could have rice cereal at 4 months. Well, a couple of weeks ago, mommy was scrapbooking with Dr. Russ and she said that if I was consistently eating 7 ounces every feeding that it would be okay to go ahead and try me on the rice cereal. So, for the past couple of weeks, they have monitored my eating pretty closely and I am continuing to eat A LOT! So, today was the day!!!
Everyone told mommy just to put it in my bottle and mix it up really good. Anna Laura at Dr. Russ's office said that if she did that then I would suck to hard trying to eat it and then maybe get choked the next time I ate because I was used to sucking too hard. So, mommy mixed it up and fed it to me with a spoon. Can I just say YUMMY??? I really liked it.
That picture was me getting ready to eat cereal for the first time. Someone was jealous of being left out so he jumped in the picture.
After I got done eating, Manna came over for a little while. Then Clare and Tammy stopped by just to see me. While they were here, Bro. Brian called to see if we wanted to eat dinner with them. His mom is here and she cooked for all of us. (Well, not me...I got stuck with plain 'ole formula again!!!)
I was glad to go over there because I got to see Caroline again. It was my first chance to see her up close. I love her already!!!
Yeah, that's me trying to give her a little kiss!
I got a better look from this view! Man, she's beautiful!!!
After all of the excitement, I needed a diaper change. (This is where her bed comes in!) So, daddy took me to Caroline's room to change me. Figures...the first time I am in a girl's room, it is with my dad!!!! Let's hope that changes as the years go by!!! Her room is VERY different from mine. It is pink and brown and doesn't have ONE truck, car or helicopter on the wall!!! Check me out...I look quite happy in her bed...even if it is GIRLY!!!
Daddy pulled my pants WAY up and I looked like a goober! Even Diesel (the dog) thought I looked funny! (Does anyone else notice that the dog matches the room???)
Here I am with daddy, Bro. Brian and Caroline. (and my pants are still pulled way up! This is why I prefer for mommy to dress me!!!!)
Football was on TV so daddy and I watched a little bit together.
