Beck is four months old!!!

Happy four-month birthday to Beck! I felt like we should throw a little party or something! Every month is so exciting when they're so little. :) Beck was pretty excited about his special day too:


Beck is perfect. We love him! Here are some recent things we love about him:
--when he tries to hold his bottle (and usually ends up knocking it out of his mouth)
--when he squeals out of pure happiness!
--that he loves "kicking back" and putting his little hands behind his head
--when you're not smiling at him, and he looks at you like, "What's wrong?"
--that he's not quite as restless anymore (thank goodness!)
--when he squeals like a girl when he's whining
--when he's talking and has his hands together and his little eyebrows furrowed the slightest bit, like he's having a serious conversation :)
--that he's happy and smiley 99% of the time
--his overly dramatic meltdowns :)
--his first smile of the morning, when he's totally groggy, but so happy, his smile can barely fit on his face
--his beautiful blue eyes
--his squirminess
--that he rolled over today!
--his "social skills" :) (he is so interactive and cute!)
--that he loves people and loves to be held and cuddled
--that he loves to chew on everything possible (even Adam's hair the other day!)
--that he loves his mom and dad!

p.s. Any advice on introducing solids?

Sounds like you got away with the perfect child! He is getting so big and looks so happy! I love that he's a cuddly baby...life can't get better than that!

:) Little boys are so much fun.

Bit girl it sounds like you are having it way to good this time around, beware the next one will probably be a LOT of work. :P

As far as solids go:
-No more than one new food a week and watch for allergies.
-Grains first watered down to the consistency of apple sauce or thinner if he has trouble with that.
-Expect messy-ness and learn to smile about it.
-And for me personally, I always let daddy do the first feeding, they get sooo excited about it.

Hope that helps! :) Good luck!

he's such a cutie! He is a great mix of you and Adam. So about the solids... I'd start with steak and potatoes then move on over to some Bajio!

How cute. I love how you capture the things you love about Beck. I started Katie Marie on rice cereal when she was a little closer to 5 months. I don't know what kind of advice you want.

So CUTE! Solids...I'd wait until he's 6 months. Enjoy the convenience of just packing milk while you still can.
