Silly shots and Cereal!

Those silly little shots! Carter turned 4 months last Friday and with that comes the 4 month check-up and more shots. Mommy did better this time with the shots but Carter cried just a little harder...I think him being slightly older made him cry just a little bit more. So sad! It breaks my heart every time. Nana Mennel went with us and she too was a little teary eyed. Carter weighed in at 13 pounds, 5 ounces and 24 inches long. He is in the 10-25% for length and 25% for weight. Overall, he is doing well and looks great!
Since he is 4 months and doing so well, the doctor said we could start him on cereal and by the looks of the smile above Carter thought that sounded like a great idea! So far so good, Carter seems to really like it! He just smiles and he even tries to move his head closer to the spoon to get a bite! In a few weeks we get to try vegetables!! It is hard to believe that he is old enough to start eating baby food. He is just getting so big. Time flies, so we just try to hold on and enjoy every minute!

I am glad Carter got over his shots quickly. I think it took you and I a little longer to deal with it. He sure seems to enjoy his cereal. Is he really old enough already??? He is such a happy baby, always has a big beautiful smile. Just melts my heart!! Love you guys.
The vacation countdown is great!!! Can't wait :)

I'm so glad Carter is liking his cereal...maybe that means he will also like his baby food, unlike his big cousin Ceili!! I'm also glad he did OK with his shots...I think it's always harder for the mom to deal with than the baby! I can't believe how big he is getting...soon he'll be sitting up on his own and then crawling...and then all of a sudden he'll be 2 telling you to "Leave me 'lone Mommy!!" Can't wait to see how he likes the ocean in a couple of weeks!
