colsen has realized that he can now reach his little feet all the way to his mouth! it's his new favorite thing to suck on his toes... when i first told kevin that he could suck on his toes, he said "ew gross!" well, it's really not that gross when baby feet don't really touch much other than clean socks and blankets :)

on halloween, colsen tried solid food for the first time! now that he's over 4 months and it's "okay", i figured we'd try it out. it's also helped with his acid reflux having something other than liquid in his stomach, and hey, he loves it! so far we've tried that bland baby cereal (he's not super fond of it, which i don't blame him!), some applesauce, banana and sweet potato!
now i'm looking for some yummy homemade baby food recipes if anyone wants to share!

just the past few days we've been working on sitting up and he loves it! i'll play on the ground with him sitting right in front of me so i can grab him before falling over. until i realized we could practice on our bed and if he falls, he'll tumble on the soft bedding! so here we are, practicing this morning and i HAD to grab my camera to document this moment. such a champ!

here's some noteworthy things we learned about colsen this month:
+ in size 3 diapers -- we had way too many blowouts in the size 2
+ talks all the time! he coos, squeals, and screams!
+ stands up with help -- he has some strong legs for a little guy
+ his thighs are chunking up and get stuck when he sits in the bumbo seat
+ rolls from side to side and we're working on him getting to roll over
+ still obsessed with his hands and sucks on them all the time
+ likes to grab his toys and put them in his mouth - everything goes in the mouth these days...
+ loves it when we sing to him - favorites are 'itsy bitsy spider' and 'twinkle, twinkle little star'
+ grabs his toes, but only when they don't have socks on them
+ most likely he has an allergy to milk proteins doesn't come from my side of the fam! ;) so i'm off dairy while breastfeeding - the hardest part for me is no cheese :( but i'm hoping not eating dairy will help me shed some more of the baby weight, so it could be in my favor ;)
