James has just started eating cereal, to be more technical he started about 3 weeks ago. Just cereal though, you're suppose to wait on everything else until six months. I asked his pediatrician when we could start him on solids and she said we could start just the cereals at 5 months. So we did in hopes that he would start sleeping longer, but no dice. He still sleeps about 5 to 5and 1/2 hours straight, but I'd hoped for better. Maybe he'll have better luck with the other solids. So, here he is with cereal all over his mouth.
Dessert is his hands. He loves his hands, and his toes. Funny thing happened, I saw him cooing/jabbering to his hand before he furiously stuck it in his mouth. It's almost like he was saying "Prepare to meet your doom."
Good News...he has started taking real naps again. Somewhere around 2 months he stopped taking hour long naps and would just cat nap all day. Which made it so hard to get anything done. But starting about 3 weeks ago he started taking three 1 hour long naps a day. Hooray! Which gives me some time to myself.
Other news, Stephen and I have seriously started to try and lose weight...again. Well I had started exercising and in 1 and 1/2 months I lost 7 pounds, but somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas I gained it all back. Probably because between that time I didn't exercise at all, it's hard with family in town before and after Christmas, not to mention all the good food. We started going to the track after Christmas, but have had some obstacles. This is the second time I'm sick, actually I think my cold just went into recession. So I'm waiting to get better again so we can go. We were going for a good week, two miles a day. Not to mention some major vegetable eating for dinner, not quite vegetarian since we like our meat and it is winter, but our fridge is full of vegetables, not to mention the 7 pounds of carrots we've already eaten. My goal is to lose one pound a week. If I can do that, then I'll arrive at my pre-pregnancy weight by the time James is 1. Then after that my next goal will be to get to how much I weighed when I married Stephen, which was about 128. But I'm just going for the pre-pregnancy goal for now so I don't overwhelm myself.
