Just Because He's Cute

This kid is almost 6 months already!


I tried feeding Silas rice cereal for the first time a few weeks ago and he wasn't too impressed.


What is this stuff, Mom?!?


Silas is pretty immobile still - not really rolling and not sitting either. Maybe because he spends so much time strapped in - to the bouncy chair, to the swing, in the stroller, in the high chair... I should probably let him have some more floor time but it is WAY too hazardous to leave him lying around :)


Silas has begun to express himself - unfortunately it is in the form of wild, insistent shrieking. Not really crying, but not really happy either. It makes things feel a little chaotic sometimes...


One of our next attempts at rice cereal - still not a big fan...


In the last few days he is finally starting to enjoy his cereal. I'm glad to have an option of something to give him when he's fussy/bored, but I'm a little overwhelmed at the prospect of starting solids for child #3. It can be a messy and time-consuming phase. And now when we go out, baby food is one more thing that I have to remember not to forget!


It's a busy life these days but we love our little Siley-Bear. He is full of smiles and giggles and it's just as enjoyable watching him learn new things as it was with our first baby :)

He's super cute Jamie! I hear you about the hazards of leaving him lying around with older siblings. Last week upon taking a couple alone trips to the bathroom I came downstairs to find Henry's head and face covered in stickers, and his lips were red and green. Sadie thought he would like to lick the skittles she was eating. I'm trying not to think about how bad that could've turned out, but he didn't seem to mind.

Ooooh, I could just pinch his little cheeks! He's so super cute! :) Hard to believe he's already 1/2 a year old. Where has the time gone!?!
