Rice Rice Baby!

Yep, that face pretty much sums up our first attempt at rice cereal. It smells like paper and tastes even worse (how do I know that?, mum's the word). It's a big step for us over here, actual food. Like the kind that grown-ups eat. It's funny, we'll be sitting down at the table to eat and Levi sits staring at us, open mouthed, and laser focused. So, naturally, when it comes time for Levi to actually eat real food, I pretend to eat it, and he will have none of it. No laser focus. No gaping mouth. Just pursed lips and a furrowed brow. This first attempt was several days ago, and I've tried to give him a little every day since. The result rarely changes, and if anything I'd say he's developing a dislike of the ricey papery taste. It's a good thing we hit up WINCO last night, $.50 jars of baby food! It's string beans and peas on the menu next. I'll let you know how that goes.

My Baby is 4 months old now! Well, actually, he was 4 months old on December 28th. He's a short and fat little munchkin, and I love his chubby cheeks. All four of them, haha! We went to the Doctor today and this is what he said-

Head- 45 cm (100%)  Yay, my baby is the best his age at growing his head, I'm so proud :)
Height- 25 1/4" (43%)
Weight- 16 lbs 14 oz (69%)

He also got some more vaccines, poor little guy. Right now he is still in his car seat sleeping it off. On a happy note, the doctor gave us the go ahead to start Levi on Rice Cereal! That's kind of exciting! A short but sweet post today, but I'm so proud I got one done!
