Well, I can't believe it, but the big man is 5 months old. Crazy how time flies. Some exciting this that Drew has been doing are eating rice cereal. He's done a great job with it. He eats it during lunch and dinner. We started only eating it at dinner for a couple weeks and then added it to his lunch menu. He eats it like a pro. And even got upset with Krisi (babysitter) today when she wasn't quick enough. He's also staying up a little longer after feedings. As long as he has the boppy around him he's getting really good at sitting up by himself and playing with toys. Before I know it, he'll be crawling around the room.
We also tried baby food for the first time tonight. We started with carrots and Drew loved them!! He didn't make any weird faces (which actually disappointed me a little bit) and ate half of the jar. He probably would have eaten more had I let him, but I wanted to take it easy his first time on baby food. We'll probably try green beans Friday or Saturday. Maybe I'll get my sour type face on that one!
Well, the little man is 4 months old. Can you believe it? He's changed and grown so much. I love hearing his little giggle and seeing that smiling face. We've even been able to do a little schedule tweaking in the last couple days. We've dropped the little evening nap he was taking which was only for 30 minutes every night. And just tried to extend the times he's awake between feedings which make the naps a little longer sometimes and extends the times between feedings.
We also tried rice cereal for the first time yesterday and I don't think Drew is a big fan of it yet. We're gonna keep trying at dinner time each night until he gets the hang of it. I think I'm just gonna do rice cereal at dinner time for about 3-4 weeks and then slowly move to baby food. Here's a video of baby Drew eating the cereal.
As you can tell from the title I'm a buckeye, living in the bluegrass state. But I love it here and wouldn't change it for the world. I'm a 2nd grade teacher at Northern Elementary and I love all the rewards that come with teaching. My husband Mike and I live in Georgetown and just welcomed our first little one into the world on August 27th, 2010. We also have two dogs, Starr and Tyson.
