First Meal

We gave in to the babies demands and gave them their first real meal - RICE cereal. Michael LOVED it. He would cry if I didn't give it to him fast enough. The others weren't to sure if they liked it or not. They were all pretty good at eating it. Michael and Jaileigh were even chewing it. Our pediatrician and GI doctor gave us permission to start it at 5 months. The babies are now 5 1/2 months old. At 6 months we get to start real baby food. We are all excited for that!

New weights:
Anthony 11 lbs 14 1/2 ozs
Michael 12 lbs 4 ozs
Jakob 12 lbs 3 ozs
Jaileigh 9 lbs 8 ozs

Michael waiting not so patiently for his next bite

Jakob is not so sure that he likes it. Something happened to the picture of Anthony because I can't find it. I will have to take another one.

We also got BUMBO chairs for Christmas. They love sitting in them and socializing with each other. They are so cute too. Early Childhood Intervention comes in on Friday's to work with the babies and suggested we ask Bumbo chairs for Christmas. They are really neat chairs.

Playing with each others toes, Michael and Jakob socializing. They are really cute together. They are now aware of each other and actually "talk" to one another.
