1) Merritt had her first taste of baby cereal! I know she's 6 months - but our pediatrician "Dr. Whistle" (that's what MC calls him) says she's really more like a 4 1/2 month old. And for me to treat her somewhere in the middle. She has been wanting to nurse every 2 hours lately - and I'm not sure if its a growth spurt - or if she's just starving. So I started slowly the first week, and I really started pushing more this week. BUT she has been screaming and REALLY fussy the past few days... so I'm backing down a little. Back to just once a day. Boring stuff I know, but just sharing. And I dipped the spoon in squash to see her reaction - and she got choked. So I'll wait awhile to go back to food.
|Loved the squash. until the 2nd bite.|

3) First snow of 2013. Here's a pic of the other 2 that loved it. For those of you that don't live in Mississippi --- this is a BIG deal! We don't get snow very often. Sometimes years without a snow. But this was just enough to play in! (and yes, I changed MC's boots when we got in the car to ones that actually match her outfit.)
4) Mattox went potty!!!! He went so many times yesterday I lost count. Maybe we're onto something here... I LITERALLY spent over 3 hours straight in the bathroom with him yesterday.
5) Merritt discovered her feet/toes! This one caught me off guard. And I actually got a little upset. These are things that no one prepares you for.... she can't reach them = her belly gets in the way. And I'm not sure if its uncomfortable for her - but she wouldn't bend her knees. She tried DESPERATELY to put them in her mouth, but I couldn't decide if I should cry, laugh, or just be proud that she's trying. She had a good time playing regardless. That's all that counts. :)
She also rolled onto her side from her back....baby steps!
Here's to many more first this year!!!
