Homemade baby food!

Yes! It's back to making baby food! I had to tap back into my previous blog posts of making baby food for little k to get reminded on what to do! Ha! 

Little man is 5 months next week! We always began rice cereal and now ready for some other first foods! 

Our first food to try is sweet potato! 

I pressure cooked 4 organic sweet potatoes with a cup of water for 10mins. I used that same water back in when mixing it to make it a little thinner. 

I left some in the fridge for the week and I put some to freeze. 

He loved it! 

This cutie! 

Next food to try is apples! 

Next week we will go on to chicken and another fruit and veggie! Maybe avocado and parsnip!

4 months old!

4 months old! 

You weigh 14.4lbs and in 6-9 month clothes. 

You are in size 3 diapers and have the cutest chunky legs.

You are a calm happy baby. And sleep a lot! You are my cuddle bug! 
You are reaching and grabbing your toys and babbling more and more.

Today your doctor said you can begin to eat first foods like cereal and meats! They recommend  meats as first foods now but I'll start you just on rice cereals for now.

You weren't too sure about it haha! 

Your torticollis is gone and you don't need physiotherapy anymore! We have one session left turn you are done! 

You have a lot of dry skin, so the doctor gave me some tips:
2 baths a day where I soak you in the tub.
Apply creams like shea butter to damp skin.
And to use ivory snow detergent and no bounce sheets. 

We squish you all day! Ha!

  You haven't perfected your selfie smile yet. You will soon tho. Haha. 

We love you Sooo much baby M!

First day of solids for baby boy

When I went for Kristian's 4 month check up our doctor said I can start him on rice cereals. I was going to wait until 20 weeks, but decided to start this week a week sooner haha!

Yesterday was the first taste!!

I only gave him a small spoon of it for just a taste. He was so cute. Today we tried again, I made it more runny this time.

Once he takes a tablespoon on cereal a couple times a day for a couple weeks, then we will move on to avocados!!! Yay!!

Yesterday his new personalized bibs came in too, perfect timing!

Here is the video of the first taste. I laugh when I hear my voice on my videos. I really need to think about this everytime I take a video. I should, it's hilarious. So just pay attention to baby k's facial expressions ;)

Baby's 4 month Doctor's Appointment

Yesterday baby boy had his 4 month vaccines and check up!

He is 13lbs 24 inches long.

Doctor was very happy with baby K's development. Yay!

He is also happy with Kris's eating schedule, even tho I thought maybe it's still too often every 2-4 hours. Doctor said nope, it's fine.

I told him that Kris is not interested in a bottle or a pacifier, but loves to nurse and loves to suck his thumb.

He said to allow Kris to suck his thumb and he encourages it. He said we want to teach baby to self soothe. I never thought anything of it and never stopped him either, it's actually really cute, especially when he nurses and sneaks his thumb in there on the side too. Haha!

Doctor also said that we can start rice cereals. Just a teaspoon a day and move up from there. Once I think Kris is ready I can move on to fruits and veggies. He said I don't need to follow any timeline.

With my own research I decided to wait a couple more weeks before starting in rice cereal. But I'm excited that Kris is on to the next stage soon!

Kris got his needles, cried at the poke but I got him to laugh right after, whoop!

Everyday is amazing, everyday baby boy learns something new and it makes me so happy.

I can't get enough of this mr snuggles!

Happy 4 months, Happy Leap Year!

Baby boy you are 4 months today! Happy leap year too! You won't have this day for another 4 years!

What's going on at 4 months.

We still think you are teething, you rub anything you can get in your mouth on your bottom teeth.

You grab your toys and you put them right in your mouth and you try and eat those cute feet of yours too!

You love to babble and scream and talk to us.

You drool a lot these days and you love blowing bubbles haha

You smile and laugh so much. We love your smile! We love when you get excited and kick and wave your arms like crazy it's hilarious.

You love attention, you love being talked to and love being held outwards so you can see the world. You just stare at daddy when he speaks and he makes you giggle so much.

Your sleep is all over the place. You do 4-6 hour stretches some days then go right back down to 2 hour stretches other days. I follow your schedule, so no need to worry haha I'm not trying to rush you into anything. There's time for that. ;)

You are 4 months and 13 pounds you are in size 2 diapers but I will move on to size 3 when this pack is over. You are still EBF ;)

This month we will have some firsts. Like leaving you with daddy for 8 hours! I know you will do just fine. It's more of a first for mama.

However you still don't take a bottle, which stresses me about leaving you for long... I'm hoping you will be ok with it soon!

We will bring out your baby einstein jumperoo this month so you can play and learn.

You still are not a fan of the swing, I noticed that you can sit in it longer when it's not swinging haha.

This week you get your second set of vaccines! I'm nervous!

You are such a fun baby, you brighten our lives. We love you soo much!
