Yum Yum


Last week was Ryan's 4 month check-up and he passed with flying colors. On the 6th he weighed 17 lbs 13.5 oz which is in the 85% and his length is 27 7/8 inches which is more than 100% for his age. The pediatrician said that Ryan is the average height of an 8 month old and his head control and eye contact is also advanced for his age. She urged us to baby proof our house right away because she has a feeling that Ryan will start moving in no time. We were also given the green light to start feeding him cereal and to introduce vegetables and fruits. So far he loves the Rice Cereal and carrots and hasn't had any sign of allergies, thank goodness. I'm off to the store to buy a butternut squash to try tonight. Ryan has also started drinking from a sippy cup during meal time plus loves to drink from my water bottle when ever he gets a chance. I was warned of how quickly Ryan would grow up but this is ridiculous...

Good for him!! I can't believe he is already eating. Hopefully it will help him to "sleep like a baby" :)

Wow look at those beautiful eyes!! He is awesome! It is about to get pretty fun when he starts moving. I can't believe he takes a sippy cup, too. that is great.
