I decided to pull out the boppy that we haven't used in months and use it to let Chase practice sitting up. It's pretty funny to see him use the teeting ring as leverage to hold himself up. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end. :)

Here's the final result. After 2 1/2 hours here is all the baby food that I made. I was very proud of myself. I decided that since I spent so much time and effort making all this food for Chase it only made sense for me to let him try it. I gathered up a bib, fixed a small amount of rice cereal (mixed with breast milk) and pulled out one of the containers of carrots. It was a little thicker than store-bought babyfood so I thinned it out a little with more breast milk. Chase didn't seem to love it quite as much as the bananas or pears that he ate earlier today but he did eat almost all of the first container. Mission accomplished. It's definitely cheaper than store-bought baby food but it is an awful lot of work.

Chase has been doing this for about a month now and I keep trying to catch it on video. Whenever he lays on the floor (on his back), he starts arching his back and it looks like he's doing a back bend. It also looks like he's about to break his neck. Sometimes he even starts scooting backwards. Check out his acrobatics in this video and see for yourself.

This is just a silly picture that we took while we were out, playing at the mall. We thought Chase should try this hat on. It looked pretty funny but he was a good sport.

When we were shopping last weekend we found this cute little Polo outfit on sale at Belk and had to get it. I wanted to make sure to get a picture of Chase in it since he'll only get to wear it for a few weeks before the weather changes and it's too cold for it. I had to put both of these pictures on here because of the funny expression on his face in this top picture.

I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. I also wanted to thank you for keeping me every Tuesday and Thursday. I have so much fun when I'm at your house. Just look how excited I was the first day Mommy had to go back to work and I got to stay with you.

Chase is always excited to see Matt when he gets home in the afternoons. In this video he was especially excited and started laughing hysterically when Matt started talking to him. Pretty cute.
