Going on the fly fly!

Last week Doug had to go to Minneapolis for a press check for work so we decided to tag along and visit all our old favorites while we were there. It was Milo's first plane ride, and good practice for the long flight home in July. All told it was a success - he traveled like a champ!

Ready for take off!
Rules shmules! I won't turn off my celly for no one!
Man, the air is dry on this plane!
Kickin' it, king bed style
Where did my rattle go?
First time in the pool...
...and not sure what to make of this!

Happy Easter!

Too busy checking out the goods to pose
What Bella really thinks of the ears!
Everyone finding their goodies
Don't worry, I got some candy too. But mine wasn't hidden and came in a See's bag - just the way I like it!

First Solids

At Milo's 4 month appointment his doctor told us we could start solids whenever and he has been showing all the signs of being ready so we decided to give it a go tonight right on his 4 month birthday, and I would say it was a success.... eventually.

What the heck are you doing Dad?!
I don't know if I like this...
(He was frozen like this for nearly a minute - too funny!)
Well actually... now that I think about it...
Yeah!!  More please!

4 Months Old!

Height: 25.5" (75%)
Weight: 14 lbs 11 oz (50%)

Dear Milo,

Today you turned 4 months old and it sure has been an exciting month. You continue to develop your own little personality and you have no problem letting us know how you feel about something. You have perfected raspberries as well has your high pitched chirps and scream noises - and they are used for any occasion - whether you are happy or upset!
You are so big now that you are fully in 6-12 month clothes (and growing out of some already!) and will be moving into size 3 diapers this week when you run through your size 2/3s.

You are still sleeping well at night once you're asleep, however getting you to sleep has become a challenge. I think you would just really rather hang out with us so you fight it all the way! We are still working on your napping - these continue to be shorter and more sporadic then they should be, but I think we'll both get that figured out eventually.

You love your jumperoo now, and are still really into your playmat. Your favorite toy of all now is your feet though! You could lay and your back and play with your feet all day long practically. In fact, sometimes when you get a little fussy, all it takes to calm you down is to take off your socks and let you have your feet. Or if I really want to make you happy, raspberrying your feet is a gaurenteed hit! I think your feet will be the reason you learn to sit up on your own, because when you are leaning back you like to try to pull forward to find them!
You continue to be the light of our lives everyday and every month we figure each other out more and more!
