4 Month Well Baby Check

This morning was a hassle, as usual. Woke up at 6 to get myself ready for the day, and also get Mason up, fed, and ready for his 4 month Well Baby check. We had an appointment with the nurse practioner, Shannon, and I really liked her! She was very thorough, answered all of my questions, and took her time with my little (big) guy.
He is weighing in at a whopping 18.8 lbs now, which is more like the weight of an 8 month old. He is also 26 1/4 inches long, and looking very healthy!
Of course the little guy cried the biggest crocodile tears I've ever seen him cry as soon as the nurse gave him his shots. Bless his wittle bitty teeny tiny heart. I rocked him and held him, and then the Mr. gave me quite the pouty face, so I handed Tubs over to him and he calmed him down before we left.
We discussed starting him on rice cereal. So this is my picture for the day.

First attempt! We shall see how it goes, and I will definitely take pictures!
And to catch up, my picture from yesterday was of my favorite thing in the world. Other than Mason, and the Mr., the one thing I need to get through my day.

I'll admit it. I'm not a black coffee drinker. In fact, I don't see how anyone could drink it that way. I love my Coffee Mate and my Splenda. Gotta problem with it? Go enjoy your bitter black coffee, black coffee lovers. While I sit here at noon, enjoying another cup of my sugary (but not too sugary), creamy, tan coffee.

Molly Grace's first rice cereal attempt wasn't successful but since then it has been a breeze!! I tried at 4 months, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that she really started being able to have successful feedings. Mason is so adorable!! Good luck with the cereal!! (I mixed it with formula first just to make sure she wasn't allergic to the cereal, and then apple juice after...the apple juice apparently gets them to eat it better!) I've stuck with formula for now but I'd thought I give you my thoughts! MG and I can't wait to see you again!
