5 Months Old and a New High Chair

Amery is 5 months old today! He's been eating cereal for a couple of weeks and we're about to start fruits and veggies in a couple more, so I figured it was time to get him a high chair. We don't have a lot of room in the kitchen area, so I picked up a space-saving booster seat that you just strap to the chair. So far I think it's a hit.


Today - a caterpillar. Tomorrow - strained peas.


Don't bug him, he's busy.

I'm trying out a new video thingy that will hopefully be more clear than the blogger version:

He gets it

We've had this jumperoo for a while now, and it's taken some time for him to grow into it. At first he hated it, then he decided he liked it but he couldn't really jump. He would just sort of stand there and do the hula. The other day he figured out how to jump straight up and down. I'm pretty sure he's going to launch right out of the thing one of these days. I caught a couple seconds of it on video for your viewing pleasure:

Oh, and I had a fun surprise in my email this morning. I have been in love with this website called Cool Mom Picks for a while now. It's a blog that is updated daily with all sorts of cute and unique stuff for kids (and parents). Budget contstraints don't allow for much shopping these days, but I do try to enter their contests whenever I get a chance. This morning I found out that I won a prize! They even posted my name on the site as the winner. I feel like a minor celebrity. (Yeah, I'm a dork, but whatev).

First Cereal

We tried cereal for the first time last night:


I think he actually liked it:
Because he tried to get the last bits off the bib:
We got some video of it too:

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

This picture was taken at daycare around 7:30 this morning (i.e., pre-coffee), so if you could not focus on my screwed up hair and lame expression, and instead focus on the cute kid and the Valentine's Day color theme, that would be great.


And for those of you who didn't get this in the mail (sorry, I only had a few to send out), here's the e-version of Amery's valentine:



*~*Post Update*~*

I would just like to show everyone what Amery dropped off at my desk today:


Picture stolen from someone else.

Chocolate covered strawberries from Amy's Ice Creams. Didn't know he could drive already, did you?

The Last Hat

I think he has now worn every winter hat that Grandma has bought for him. We don't get a lot of winter in Texas, so fitting them all in was a challenge.

Yeah, I work out.


I even have the shoe socks to prove it.


You mess with me, I crush your head.

Game Day

Even though they didn't play in the Superbowl this year, Jon wanted to make it clear on Sunday who Amery cheers for. Socks courtesy of "Uncle" Keith.


A couple more from this weekend:

Don't tase me bro.
He loves this playmat.
