full belly

Well, we tried rice cereal for the first time last night. Ryan has decent head control and can sit up if we support him, so we thought we'd go for it. His pedi wanted us to have tried it by his 4-month visit, which is June 13. I had to dig around a bit to find the one baby spoon we have (will be shopping for dishes and spoons this afternoon), but finally found it and we mixed up some cereal. Ryan sat propped up in his vibrating seat and seemed intrigued by what was going on. Tony fed him his first bite so that I could man the camera. We just put a little bit on his lips at first, and he licked it off. Then we put a little on his tongue and he kind of smacked it around a bit. He seemed to like it, although after awhile he got a little frustrated by how long it takes to eat off of a spoon, so we put the rest in a bottle with a fast-flow nipple and he finished up all 5 tablespoons that we had made. We'll try some more tonight! Haven't had a chance to get the pictures off my camera yet, but I'll add them to this post as soon as I can.

Do you think that maybe giving him some cereal might be helping him to sleep thru the night a little bit? 6 six solid hours! That's fantastic!
Kiss my little buckaroo for me.
Love ya
