It's an Acquired Taste

We've finally hit the four month mark, which means we have the green light from our pediatrician to start introducing solid foods.  We were so pumped to start with cereal...but baby Colt isn't so sure.

Take a look:

Any suggestions on getting him to eat cereal??

I Got You Babe

We're new parents.  We readily admit that we have no idea what we're doing.  We worry about things we probably shouldn't.  We are constantly reading baby books, researching articles online and soliciting our "parent" friends for advice.  You already know this if you were on Heather's mass email list begging for the secrets to sleeping through the night. (Which by the way y' all worked!  Colt finally started sleeping through the night around 11 weeks!)

When Heather read online about baby bald spots and flat heads, she panicked, adding one more worry to her ever growing list.  Flat heads & bald spots are problems babies develop when they spend too much time laying on their backs or in a car seat.  

Then she found the camera from our recent trip...and breathed a sigh of relief.  Pretty sure we don't have to worry about that!

Grinning with the Garretts

If you know the Garretts, you know they're not big picture people.  Thankfully, Heather came into their lives and everything changed.  They even take family photographs now!

Check out a few that Brandi Hodges was sweet enough to snap during our getaway to Lake Watauga.  And please note how patriotic we all are!

Milestones: Four Months Old

Our little boy is getting so big! He was a bit tough to wrestle into position this month as he kept wanting to eat his stuffed Chickadee.  Check out his four-month-old pictures:

Happy First Birthday Hudson!

Since we couldn't be with our nephew Hudson to celebrate his first birthday this year, we brought the celebration to him.  Auntie Heather & Brandi worked hard to put together a little celebration to rival the greatness of Walter Mack's (fake) first birthday.

Bottom line, all you need is cake.

And cookies for the adults.

Oh, and presents. Lots of fun presents!
