Truckin along!

Saturday afternoon we headed to a little fest to see some majorly big trucks!  

Since I love the movie Cars so much & the character Mack, I was so happy to take a picture with a real, live Mack truck!

Smokey the Bear reminded us to be safe around fires.  I should remind my Grammy of that since just last week she accidentally set an entire Kleenex box ablaze!  She put a tissue too close to the candle & luckily Mommy noticed it right away & threw water all over it. Yikes!

Reesey was sporting her new outfit & sun hat.. isn't she cute?

After checking out the trucks we headed into downtown Dunedin for a stroll.  Then we ended the evening at a really cool restaurant called Ozona Blue.  It was an awesome, impromptu day!  We're going to miss Grammy lots when she heads back to Chicago next week!

Sunday, April 15th, I tried cereal for the very first time!  I was five months & one day old which was older than Cameron was when he first ate solids at almost exactly four months.  Click here to see a picture from Cameron's first taste of cereal.

At first I wasn't sure what to think and I made some pretty funny faces!

Hmmm... I'm not sure what to think about this whole cereal thing!

 But, perhaps I'll keep trying!

Okay, maybe I like cereal after all!  Since then, Mommy has made me sweet potatoes & bananas which I seem to like a whole lot better than cereal!  The world is my oyster & I cannot wait to try more & more foods as I grow!

Easter fun & Reese's doctor visit

Friday Mommy & Daddy got out of work a little early which was so nice! We headed home, hung out & colored Easter eggs.

This was my second time coloring eggs, but of course Reese never has since this was her first Easter. She sat by and watched us & seemed to have a good time... I'm sure next year she'll want to be right in the action with the rest of us!

As my eggs were "taking a bath" I played with the camera & took some pictures. Mommy will upload them for me soon so I can show off my work.

And here you'll see our beautifully vibrant eggs which we just so happened to enjoy as egg salad tonight.

And in other news, Reese had her four month well baby visit on March 28th. It was a little past due since she was sick & we had to reschedule so she was healthy for her vaccinations. So, technically she was four & a half months at this check-up.

Reese's stats:

Head circumference: 16.14 inches (41%)
Height: 25.25" (75%)
Weight: 14.63# (62%)

So, she has grown 5.75" & gained 7.53#. My little sissy is not so little anymore & has more than doubled her weight since birth! Now I'm going to compare my four month stats with Reesey's... Keep in mind, I went to the doctor pretty much right at 4 months so it was nearly two weeks earlier than her appointment.

Cam's four month stats:

Head circumference: 17.72"
Height: 26"
Weight: 17.2#
