Rice Cereal

We decided to give rice cereal a try this morning! Silas was not too thrilled to be sitting in his high chair. He seemed a little nervous to be honest!

He was also not thrilled with the rice cereal!

Most of it ended up being spit out and cleaned off of his sleeper suit or placed back in his mouth.

We continued to attempt feeding him, but eventually he was so frustrated he started crying, so we gave him is bottle and he was much happier.
So much for the cereal; we'll have to try again!

Splahs pads and library visits

Silas and mommy have been trying to get out of the house more often so that we don't become recluses!

Today we met up with friends Liz and Taelyn at the Rio Vista community park and went to the splash pad. Of course I forgot to bring my camera, but we had such a fun time! Taelyn walked cautiously through the puddles and occasionally was surprised by the random water features while I carried Silas around. He seemed to enjoy the misters and the shower heads the most. We sat in a few puddles, but the water was too unpredictable so Silas held on for dear life after being hoisted back on my shoulder.

After we splashed around and dried off we headed over to the play ground and Silas ate and fell asleep as Taelyn played on the slides and chased birds away from her lunch! Liz got to hold sleepy Silas while I pushed Taelyn on the swings. It was a fun morning, and both kiddos fell asleep as we headed for home. Hopefully we'll be able to do this more often!

Tonight Silas and I head over to the Glendale Library for PJ Story time. Maybe I'll remember to snap a few pictures while we are there!

Josh's sneak attack

Neither Josh or I can manage to get Silas to smile or coo on camera or video. As soon as he sees either he gets the most serious look on his face. Josh managed to trick Silas into thinking the camera was put away. You can't really see him, but you hear him!

This was taken the same day as puppy kisses...

We say "hello" to Great Grandpa Dave and practice wiggling around to make the music come on.

Silas Videos

Silas is getting so big! He no longer fits in most of his 3 month clothes and he isn't even 3 months yet!

We've taken some video of Silas over the last few days...

Here is a one of him snoring... I can't manage to get one of him cooing because as soon as he sees the camera he stops!

Here is another of him in his new bouncer. It was a gift from Bubby's friend Calvin in Illinois. Asher is enjoying the fact that he can kiss Silas so easily. His bouncer is now on the other side of the gate we have up to keep Asher out of the living room. Silas is very clever and has figured out how to get the music to come on! He does the same thing with the toys on his bouncing chair in Daddy's office.

Now that we've figured out to record video and post on the blog, there will be many more to come!
