Almost there!

So its been a very busy little month. I have started eating "real" food, if you consider baby food from a jar, real food. I am still holding out hope that it will start tasting better. Mom started with wallpaper paste, sorry, make that rice and barley cereal, which I don't mind but I think she can do better. I've tried bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, peaches, and applesauce. Its a veritable rainbow every time Mom changes my diaper. Life's full of surprises and so is my diaper!

My hair is really starting to come in a lot fuller now. So far its dirty blonde with strong blond highlights. Mom is still holding out hope that it goes darker or redder. We will just have to see what happens. On a similar note, Dad can no longer call the 'blonde' whiskers on his chin blonde, they are certifiably white! Me thinks its Just for Men time! Apparently, its the extra "stress" I've caused that is turning him gray....what is he going to do when I start dating when I'm 35?

I've started the march towards crawling. I spend most of my day sitting up now and I am starting to test out my crawling position. I roll onto my tummy and practice the rocking position on my hands and knees. My balance still isn't great but its coming along and Mom figures I will be crawling by Christmas, which means that Dad better get started baby proofing the house!

No teeth yet but I am chewing on everything I can find! Stay tuned!
