13 weeks and a blogworthy event!


Well, today was a bit of a struggle. Mr Man woke up, happy as a lark, but soon became a Mr Fussy. I am not too fond of Mr Fussy, simply because I never know what to do with him. He was gnawing on his hand, and drooling non stop, so I thought he might have been teething. A little early (yes, I know!) but I checked his temp and his gums and his nose, and it seemed that was not the problem. I couldn't figure it out. I was so sad because Mr Man just wouldn't stop crying.


After 2 calls to the doctor (one, to figure out what I could do to help, and the next for a squeeze me in an apt) I packed up our little man and we were headed to the office.


After Mr Man crying and the doc doing a thorough check up, it was decided....


Mr Man... was... hungry. Yep! That's right folks. He was hungry.


Apparently Mr Man weighs 14 lbs and he is needin' some rice cereal in his life. APPARENTLY... he is too advanced and needs to jump ahead 3 weeks. Not to mention, our pediatrician said he was VERY advanced, because he is grabbing and puting things in his mouth.


So... this evening we fed our little man rice cereal for the first time, and he was a CHAMP!


I am so proud of my little man for this 13 week milestone.

Thats exciting that you get to start the "fun" foods!! I started kenz on them at 3 months because she wouldn't take a bottle and I wanted a break :) So glad it was a little hunger pain and not getting sick.. everything is going around right now, strep and pink eye, yuck!!

I love baby milestones! Rice cereal days are extremely precious :) As cliche as this sounds....they definitely grow up too fast.

Holy Cow, are you serious? My poor child, I bet that is what's wrong with her. She has been shoving everything in her mouth since she was about 3 mos. old. I mean everything, clothes, blankets, our shirts, my hair and the list goes on. Well we go to the Dr. Mon., so we'll see. Congrats Brady on your
1st spoon of rice cereal!!

He is a spitting image of you! Did he like the cereal? My son made the worst (cutest) face ever everytime he ate it.
