Chicken Update

Sadly this past week one of the chickens died from a prolapsed vent, and we now have 3.

Five Months Old

Theo is five months old today! We celebrated with the usual monthly photos, the weekly weight check, and a dozen cupcakes to share with a few of Theo's buddies. (Really we parents ate the cupcakes but I figure the babies get their share via milk eventually, right?) Theo weighs in at 15 lbs 6 oz today, and he still loves going out and getting attention. His favorite tickles are raspberries on the soles of his feet and kisses under the chin, and he chuckles as a reward for doing these things. His favorite amusements are definitely watching Tetley and Rocket and if he must play with something inanimate, he's discovered the new blue spikey ball. He also still loves his Valentine's Day cards, bells, and owl and can spend lots of time with the jingly lion in his bouncy chair and his monkey playmat. He hates having his arms put into any type of clothing and definitely checks in on our reaction when he encounters new things to see if they are funny or scary. He's almost sitting by himself and needs only a little lower back support, and he's started eating solids with a few rounds of avocados. He still shows no interest in rolling back to front and is a pro in the other direction. All in all, he's constantly full of smiles for anyone willing to pay him a little attention and overall a big easygoing bundle of baby boy joy.

Theo's First Solid Food

This past week we fed Theo some really mushed up (and milked-down) avocado. It's the first thing other than vitamins and milk (and whatever he's picked up off the floor) that he's ever had to eat, so obviously we had to document every second of it! Check out the entire gallery.

Theo's February Photos

I'm less behind on February photos, so here is that collection, including a few fun Valentine's Day cards he received and a few from his four month birthday.

Theo's January Photos

I'm a little behind on uploading photos, but I finally got the rest of January's photos online. Some of them you might have seen in other galleries, like the trip to Atlanta. But sorting photos that have and have not made it to the adoring public is a task for people without babies. See all the photos here.
