Mother's Day...

Karl and I just had a wonderful first Mothers' Day Weekend. We went to a ton of Garage/Yard Sales, The Farmer's market (and bought some awesomely delicious ingredients for and even more awesome meal later that night), and watched movies Saturday. Then Sunday morning he took me to one of my favorite local places to eat (just a few blocks away), Real Food Cafe. We had a huge breakfast, and then went to Blandford Nature Center to walk the trails for the rest of the day. It was a great first Mothers' Day! Oh, and Karl bought me a plain silver band to replace a ring that I had lost too much weight to wear anymore! How awesome is that! Here are some pictures from this weekend:

Growing bubs..

So, a lot has been going on - and not much time to write.
Ethan turned 4 months old, and had his 4 month doctor's visit. He was 16lbs 9oz. I couldn't believe it. He's a big guy! We found out that he's well "ahead of the troops" as Doc. Hoffman says, physically.
(Not fat wise, developmentally)
He's starting to roll well, chew on hands and feet endlessly, and even sit up really well in his boppy pillow... One bad thing we found out is that he has Eczema. It's all over his buns, and his cheeks from the wet/dry/wet cycle. But the cortisone cream is helping a lot. Also, something I found equally trivial and exciting is that Doc says to start introducing solids to Ethan. Now before the "mommy police" starts siren-ing, I know you're suppose to wait until 6 months. But, Doc says that with his appetite and his size it'll be hard for me to keep up with his nutritional needs, and says that it won't be detrimental to his system as long as I feed him the "right" foods. Here are some pictures of that fun business!
