My first trip to the mountains!

Last weekend I went on a really fun trip with mom and some of the other ladies working in the children's ministry at church. We all went up to a cabin in Oakhurst. Most of the moms that came brought their kids and we kept everyone very busy.

I did pretty good most of the trip, especially during their meetings. The only thing was for some reason I didn't want to sleep in my travel crib. The first night mom kept getting me when I fussed, nursed me back to sleep, and then would put me back. This happend about 5 times that first night, mom didn't like that very much. So she finally gave in the second night and kept me in bed with her! She was very worried I wouldn't sleep in my own bed when we got home, but I like my bed so that wasn't a problem.

No more peas

I found out I definitely do not like peas this week! Mom read somewhere that it takes about 10-14 different times of me eating a kind of food for me to be able to tell if I like it or not. Well we must have gotten there with peas because they're just not working out for me anymore. I realized it one night when Grandma Hicks was watching me. (Mom and dad went to the movies to see fireproof)

I let her know I was hungry so she went and got the food mom left for me... PEAS. Well I took one bite and swallowed it hesitantly making a horrible face. The next bite I gagged when I tried swallowing it. Grandma thought she better try one more bite. I spit a spray of peas all over the place. I communicated my dislike well because instead Grandma gave me my rice cereal, and even added bananas! Mom had done this before and I just loved it. However, now I wont eat rice cereal alone, it has to have those yummy bananas mixed into it!

Mom didn't believe Grandma when she picked me up. She said that I've never had a problem eating anything and that I loved all food. Mom had to see for herself that I wouldn't eat the peas. She got the jar back out of my bag, and tried again to feed me those peas. I communicated my dislike of peas to her the exact same way I did to Grandma only a few hours before. I made my point clear, mom's not buying peas anymore and she's going to give the last jar that's in the pantry to my friend Asher, he still likes them. (He must only be on time 8 or 9 of having them)

Once again another eventful week! This weekend especially was super busy. Mom and 24 other ladies went to Women of Faith in San Jose. Of course she brought me. Asher and I did very well. We got to go to the mall and people watch during the day Friday. We loved all of the music and lights at the conference. Believe it or not though we actually got tired of being held. Towards the end of the conference mom actually laid a blanket on the floor so I could play, I loved it. She also let me sit in one of the seats all by myself. I felt like such a big boy I loved it!

We sure missed Daddy though! He had a busy weekend helping Aunt Tami and Uncle Bo move. He also got to see this really cool motocross show that was happening in the shopping center right by our house! I wish I would have been there for that, but I can't be everywhere at once!

4 month check up!

So a week has gone by and like we said were going to try to do this once a week.

This week was pretty good. Mommy and I got to hang out at home a lot, almost two full days of just being home.. it was very nice.

Last night Stetson and Amanda came over to see me. Well really they came over to have dinner with mom and dad but they did hang out with me too! Once again they all ate this really good looking food while I ate mushy apples... After dinner they played a board game and I just hung out. I showed them how good I am in my jumparoo, jumping so fast from leg to leg it looks like I'm running.

Today however wasn't as much fun. We stayed home all day and that was nice but then around lunch time we went to my 4 month doctors appointment. I know I've been there tons of times before but only the past two times have been since I was born. So everything was going great.. they weighed me, and measured me. I now weigh 12lbs 13oz and I'm 25 inches long! The doctor said that was great and I'm right on track to double my birth weight by six months, and that's what he likes to see. After that the nurse came in and they held me down on the table. They gave me four shots! The first one I didn't even cry, the second one I just yelled at them a little but the last two I let them have it. I was not happy about it.. worst of all mom forgot to give me my tylenol before I got them, lets just say it's been a long night. Tonight I should sleep really well though because I've had absolutely no naps today!

This weekend we're going to women of faith. I'm not to thrilled about being with a bunch of women Friday morning till sat night but my friend Asher is coming to so we'll get to hang out. We've already talked about how many times were going to make our mom's stop on the drive up to San Jose and how we'll manage to take turns crying to keep them up all night. Just kidding, we're going to be good, at least mom and miss Kim hope so!

Alright well like I said, no naps today, so it's time for me to be nursed and put to bed. Good night everyone!
