January Picture Journal

Our little guy is almost 5 months old! I cannot believe it! Here are some of the happenings from this past month of FUN:)

Charlie started eating rice cereal. It took him about a week and a half to figure it out. And I am still getting used to the messiness of this new adventure. He has also learned that he can spit during feedings, which adds to the joy of the experience as well as making us both change our outfits mulitple times during the day.

Tummy Time....
Getting upset!

Giving up!
Little man is still not rolling over regularly. But we are not too worried. He likes rolling from side to side on his back and can push up well from his stomach. I think he lacks motivation or at least that is what I am telling myself:) We will keep working on it. On a positive note, he is sitting up with assistance pretty well. And loves his new toy from Christmas, below.

He is learning so many new things in this wonderful contraption. We love it because it provides him with some independent play. For a while we were stuck in limbo because he couldn't play on his own very well and did not like the bouncer anymore. So we were holding him or playing with him on the floor, which was getting old. So thanks RaRa and Papa! This new toy is wonderful and it is a real delight to watch him play in it (videos to come once we can figure out how to load them onto the computer).

Our egar reader has begun taking an intrest in books, especially our favorite Bible. I believe he actually wants to eat the pages rather than listen to his daddy read (with different accents:-) about Jesus. But in the meantime we have been enjoying family time as part of Charlie's bedtime routine.

My Love and I enjoyed a lovely date night last Friday thanks to Aunt Becks! We had a wonderful dinner together and saw Blind side. It was nice to have some time to ourselves. And the Rug rat did well at home without us:) He is actually working on a romace of his own...!

How sweet!
We had a play day with "Little Miss Fluff". Here they are in their matching car seats.
She is about a month and a half younger than Charlie and a joy to babysit. We have had so many fun babies to "play" with in our neighborhood of all ages and Little Miss Fluff is the only girl so I think Charlie has some competition:)

I think that about raps it up for now. Oh, I forgot to mention that little man has two new visitors...teeth that is! I noticed about a week ago that he had 2 teeth poking through his bottom gum. I have been trying to get a good picture of them but they have eluded me:) I will post them as soon as I capture them on film!
