Templates...

Whoa! No idea what blogger has done now.

Slideshow?
Tabs?
New Fonts to choose from?

Too much for tonight. I'm going to bed! Pin It

Rice Cereal!

Then...

Now...



Warner's first taste of rice cereal was yesterday.
I thought it was pretty cool my Mom had a picture of me eating rice cereal (along with some applesauce).

He wasn't too sure what to think, but enjoyed smiling at me during the feeding process.

He'll be woofing it down in no time!

4 Months


Warner is 4 months old today.

This also marked his 4 month well check and second round of shots. He did well, only crying for a minute, and then immediately stopping when I picked him up.

Here are his percentiles:
Weight-14lbs 10 oz (46th percentile)
Height-26 1/2 inches (94th percentile)

He definitely doesn't get his height from me...

The doctor also gave us the green light to start cereal so we will begin that adventure tomorrow!


A few things Warner likes these days:

-his hands (especially sucking on them)
-putting anything he can in his mouth
-playing with his feet
-practicing "standing"
-rolling to his side and rolling from his stomach to his back; he hasn't quite figured out how to roll from his back to his stomach, but he's trying
-Sophie the Giraffe
-Crinkly books and toys
-observing his surroundings - he has also been very alert and observant, but you can see it even more lately
-trying to "scoot"
-"talking"/flirting


This really is a fun age.

I can't wait to see what this month has in store!

The Woombie


(this is not a picture of Warner)

As I previously posted we were having some issues with Warner rolling over while being swaddled. Well, of course that was the first and only time that happened...for now.

Our new issue is that Warner now breaks out of his swaddle. We have tried everything. Double swaddling, bigger sizes, The Miracle Blanket. You name it, we tried it. We even thought maybe we would begin the transition out of the swaddle, but that is just not an option right now. We bought a Swaddle that you can leave their arms out or in and Warner just isn't ready for it. His arms still would wake him up at night and he would end up scratching his entire face.

Then I remembered...

One of my blog readers mentioned The Woombie.

I immediately checked it out and was sold.

Basically it is a peanut shaped, spandex-like, zip up, swaddle . Instead of pinning their arms to their sides and wrapping over, The Woombie allows for more movement. I thought this would help with the transition of no swaddle, because his arms have a little more freedom, but the material is still tight enough for the comfort he craves.

We are currently on night 2 of The Woombie.

So far so good.

We are still getting 12 hours of sleep out of him so we'll take it.

Here's hoping it lasts!

Snow!

Monday morning we woke up to this...







Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we woke up to ice...
... and a whole week off of school!

I have definitely enjoyed the extra time with Warner, but we all got a little stir crazy.

Looking forward to a weekend warm up!

Around We Go!

For Christmas, Santa (my Mom), bought Warner an "Around We Go Activity Table." It is much like an exersaucer except your child has to walk themselves around the table to get to different activities. When they outgrow the seat it detaches and you have just the activity table portion left. It's really cool.

The box said 4M+ but being that he'll be 4 months in January, Christmas was the perfect time to give it to him.

Man, does he love this thing...


His favorite part is the piano. He isn't quite sure about everything else, but he is definitely taking it all in.

He will sit in this seat forever and just "talk" and laugh. It has been so funny to watch!

(Dave got a Flip for Christmas and we got a few funny videos of him with his table, so I'll have to download them soon!)

Hopefully in a short amount of time Warner will get a little bit longer and then he'll be able to start "walking" himself around the table. He already loves to put all his weight on his legs and "stand" so we have a feeling he's really going to love this!


Thanks, Santa!
