Pea Eating Monkey ie a Monkey who eats Peas

Mommy got to really test her cooking skills and I think I did very well. This magic bullet was amazing. It got the food so smooth without anything else!! This was organic frozen peas, I just cooked them on the stove, threw them in the bullet with a little of the cooking water and valua...Baby food!!!. Now I have ice cube trays in the freezer full of pea mush!!!


His very first bite, he wasn't sure what was going on, but after this he smiled!!!

Clean Bowl, Dirty Face!!!

Our baby is a 4 month well baby!!

Johnny and Mommy just got back from our first Kansas Doctor appt. I am sure you all knew this, but the big monkey is very healthy!! He got more immunizations, but the nurse made him bleed. It was horrible, but really no big deal. Then he didn't want lunch...I know shocking huh? I am keeping a very very close eye on him. But he still seems happy. He kept rolling toward me on the table, it was like he was reaching for me, so great!!!

He can officially start veggies!!!We went to the organic store and got squash, green beans, carrots, and yams. I am going to spend the rest of the day making baby food. I am so excited!!!!!! I think we will start with green beans for the next few days and then squash. He is going to love it!! While we where at the organic store a woman stopped to say how cute Johnny was and he kept looking at me then her and back and forth. She said "obviously you are the apple of his eye!" He loves me!!

At 4 months and 1 week Johnny is 18.5 pds and 26 inches. 95th percentile!! That is my big boy!!!

Not much else is new here. We have made some good friends who live up the road (but they are leaving us for Japan next month) And I have been looking around for a child that I can watch at home and make a little extra money. Grams brought a few complications to my attention, so I am not sure how that will work out, but it would be nice.

Johnny is amazing and we are looking forward to our Maryland visit next week!!

growing up

4 months today and I feel as if he is packing his things to move out. Normally when Shawn gets up to go to work Johnny cuddles with me in bed for a few hours, for the last two mornings he hasn't wanted to cuddle, cried until I layed him next to me, then was asleep in a few seconds. Happy to not be wrapped up with me. Last night we both had a rough night because I was trying desperately to get him to cuddle with me and neither of us got much sleep. I think it may be time for him to start sleeping in his crib all night instead of our room, but I don't want him to. I want to hold him all night every night!!! I had a dream last night that he just started walking. No warnings, just got up and started walking, to get away from me. But he still smiles and has gotten really good with his rice cereal. He opens his mouth and everything. 4 months ago I was just pregnant.

It is so much fun to be a Mom.

one minute he was playing and the next minute he was fast asleep, slept like that for nearly an hour. That is what happens when you start eating rice cereal 3 times a day

This was Mommy and Johnny's day on the town. We are sooooo cool!!!
