5 Months & growin' like a weed!

So last Friday we had our dreaded weight check. We have stressed this weight check since the Dr. said if we didn't hit at least 13 pounds, we would be going in to CHKD to have tests run. So Friday morning, we went in, stripped him down and on the scale he went. 15 pounds!!! Thank the lord! No more worries about weight! We can now stop dream feeding him at night which will drop him back to 5 bottles a day 7oz. each. He's been loving the stage one foods. We've tried bananas, prunes, carrots, sweet potatoes & apple sauce, next we will try PEAS!!! We'll keep you posted on how the peas go!

Enjoy the video and pics!

30 before 30!

I'm participating in "30 before 30" from my good friend Elizabeth's blog. Here's the description from her blog

"Will you join me on this adventure of growing up?

All you have to do is:

* Pick a milestone that works for you. (Trust me, I KNOW life doesn't end at 30... Thank Goodness!)
* Make a list of things to accomplish between now and then. They can be big or small things... To me, this is just one step closer to living life a little fuller!!
* Post my "30 Before 30" button on your page to let everyone know you're playing along
* And then, link-up or leave a comment here with your very own "To Do" list.

We'll check-in periodically to see how things are going... I can't wait! (It's never too late to join in!)"

LOTS of New Pics!

So I missed a blogging week!!!! I'M SOOO SORRY! It's the first one I've missed in forever, this week just got away with me! Here's a quick update, and what everyone really wants, PICTURES!!


We had a very quiet St. Patty's Day! It was a beautiful day and we walked all around the shops by our house, there was a GREAT sale at the Carter's store. Also we went to a Gymboree class with our friend Kendal and her little boy Rylan! It was very cute for the babies, they enjoyed the bubbles and the singing!

This past weekend we were in Maryland and went to a wedding in DC. It was such a beautiful blended ceremony of Jewish and Greek-Orthodox. There were so many fun traditions at the reception that we couldn't keep them straight! While we were at both the rehearsal dinner and wedding, Chip's mom & peter got to babysit Kane!

This Friday Kane will be 5 months old! He has his weight check on Friday at 11am, we'll see if all of our new feeding habits have paid off. I'm sure they have, Kane feels soooo solid now! They Doctor would like him to be at least 13 pounds, and I'm thinking he's surpassed that!

Enjoy the pics!!

There were 9 in the bed and the little one said "Roll Over, Roll Over!"

So Kane is FINALLY rolling over! A little behind the mark, but he finally did it. I think it was because I had told him about the other babies his age already rolling over and he just couldn't stand it! hahaha :) Here's a quick video of his new trick!

Eating is going well! Per our Doctor's instructions at his 4 month appointment, we started with the Rice Cereal and have began to introduce Stage 1 foods 4 days at a time for allergy reasons. I was worried since he did so poorly with the rice cereal, but he's very much enjoyed Bananas & now Prunes! haha YUCK! He's been eating the baby food 2-3 times a day in between bottle
feedings.

Here are some pic's! Enjoy!
