Cole's First Thanksgiving
Cole had a great first Thanksgiving. He is getting used to being around family and getting held constantly. He did great! He even tried some mashed potatoes but hated them. As soon as they went in his mouth he screamed until I took them out of his mouth. Guess he's not ready for that yet! He is eating just about every baby food (available for first foods) now. He likes them all except peas. He gags on peas and spits them out. They aren't as aweful as mashed potatoes to him, but they are pretty bad.
He also attended his first day after Thanksgiving cookie baking session. He did great there as well. He enjoyed the attention and everyone liked having him around for entertainment.

4 month check up
Cole had his 4 month check up on Monday. He was 17 lbs 6 oz on Monday. He was in the 93rd percentile for weight and 50th for height so he is a fatty!! I like to call him fat baby. He eats a normal amount so we are not concerned. He got a clean bill of health and got 3 shots. He had a low fever all day yesterday but seems to be back to normal today.
He has been getting really good at sitting with help. If I sit behind him or if I put the boppy pillow around him he sits up and plays for a few minutes at a time. He is really starting to like playing with his toys and grabs at everything in sight. He LOVES my parents' dog Penelope because she licks his hands. When he sees her, he reaches out for her to lick him. He laughs really hard every time she does.
He still sleeps through the night and is a great baby! :)

Cole's over 4 months old now! Whoa! At least he looks it! When I was 5 months old I was 11 pounds! Cole's somewhere around 18 pounds, so he's one and a half of me. We bought him a jumper a couple weeks ago, and he loves it. It's so funny to watch him get all excited and jump around in it. Plus, now when we put him in his exersaucer, he tries jumping. He's slowed down in growing a little bit, so that's good. We can't have him growing too fast! We'll know more officially next monday when he has his 4 month checkup.

Umm.... that's about it. I probably won't update anything soon because my hard drive crashed. I'm in the lofty process of re-creating everything on my computer. At least I had everything backed up.

Cole's first Halloween!
