We celebrated your first Thanksgiving this week. Yes, you have topped our thankful list! Since everyone else was enjoying a yummy meal, we thought you would like to as well. Now that you have finally reached the six month mark, we gave you your first real food...rice cereal!
It didn't really go like we thought it would. Knowing how badly you have been wanting to eat and how you are ALWAYS hungry, we thought you would happily scarf down the cereal.
You scarfed it down, but not happily. In fact, you were pretty mad about it! You wanted to feed yourself and fought me every time I tried to take the spoon away. You did NOT like the interruption of me having to get more cereal on the spoon. Maybe because you are used to milk coming to you steadily?
We have continued to give you cereal once or twice a day. You are getting more patient with it.
We spent the entire week in Oklahoma. You did great! Of course, everyone loved having you around.
tolerated enjoyed your visit.
At the end of our trip we went to an indoor studio and took pictures of the family. You weren't feeling too photogenic, but we did get a few cute ones for our Christmas cards.
When we got home we were amazed by how much you had changed in one week. You can now sit up for 10-15 minutes on your own without falling over. You can also manipulate your toys better and are really good at getting your paci in your mouth quickly. What a big boy you are!
We love you.
