20 Weeks

Hello friends!

Liam is 20 weeks old today!

20 weeks

This week has been quite the adventure!  As you may remember, we gave Liam his first taste of solid food.. The jury is still out as to whether or not he liked it.  We are going to try again this weekend so I will report back on Monday.

IMG_1810I spent most of this week researching umbrella strollers and armed with a 20% off coupon and a $10 gift card we headed to Baby’s R Us and bought one.  We decided on the Chicco Liteway.  Unfortunately the only color they had at the bru we went to was black.. oh well.. I really wanted the Plum or Juniper color…

IMG_1720He is still really into eating his hands, but I no longer think he is in active teething.. It’s so weird, he went through a phase where I could have sworn that he was teething because he was so fussy and it looked like his gums hurt. But nope, not anymore..20130615_174501

Tummy time has been getting better.  He has rolled over a few more times, and is now tolerating being on his tummy for longer periods of time.  Yesterday when I put him on his tummy, he started pulling on the playmat and scooting himself forward.. As if he was doing a belly crawl.  I know that he is a few months away from being able to crawl but I can already see that he is determined to start moving as soon as possible.  Yikes!  It looks like we are going to have to start looking into babyproofing the house soon.

I am totally geared up to start making baby food and freezing it.  Erik has to work on Saturday and I thought I would take the opportunity to start making baby food! IMG_1809

It is still early for him to start eating peas and sweet potatoes but I am going to make them this weekend and freeze them while I have the time.  Baby’s-R-Us had a sale on the Infantino Freshly Squeezed system so I went ahead and bought it.  I won’t be using this quite yet because he is way too young for it.  The bags have a 4 oz capacity and there is no way that he is ready to eat that much at a time.  So it is going up in the cabinet waiting for the day he is ready for it.  I went ahead and bought this solid food starter kit and I will be using that to freeze baby food in 1 oz potions.  I will report back on this product as soon as I have a chance to use it.

That’s enough yapping for today!  I hope everyone has a great day!
