I am amazed at how easy my kid is! I fed him his oatmeal with a spoon for the first time today, and he did so well! He kept his hands out of his mouth, swallowed very well, and even opened his mouth for the spoon. (Sorry it's so dark; you know how light sensitive Roy is, so we don't have much light coming in, and I don't think to open the curtains before videoing. Gotta work on that!)
It's amazing how much developmental progress a baby makes in just one day. Warren now has no problem holding himself up on his tummy. He even seems to like it - mostly.
I love to watch Warren play. He was intently focused on that frog and kept spinning it.
Television - yup, he loves it!

This pic below was taken a few days before the video. I was eating lunch and had Warren in his Bumbo, and he would holler at me in a high-pitched voice, and I would mimic him, then he would do it again. We did this for several minutes! I just love the big grin on his face. No better lunch date.
While my parents were here I was able to defrost my deep freeze like I wanted, but I was also able to make new curtains for my kitchen! My mom made a matching table runner for our breakfast table which looks awesome. (I forgot to take a pic before I started posting, and I'm just too lazy to go do it now!) I hope to make matching curtains and a table runner for our dining room, just not sure when. I have recently learned how to tie-dye. I learned how in order to tie-dye curtains and pillow cases for my classroom. They turned out well, so I thought I would try my hand at tie-dyeing onesies. It's really fun to do, though I have a few glitches to iron out - like not laying the shirts close together or their colors will bleed! (Ugh.) I also haven't figured out how to keep the color from fading during the first wash. Maybe I am washing too soon? Anybody have tips for me??? The blue and red one is bright in the pic below, but after I washed and dried it, it looked more like pink and light blue...hmm. I am not washing the others until they have totally air dried. I wonder if that will make a difference?
While I was rinsing out the onesies, Roy came into the kitchen and said with a drone, "Hmm, looks like you found a new hobby." I later let him know it's only about $2.50 per onesie... a cheap hobby!
Tonight we went out to eat (a little break from the ole' diet!), and Warren was a big hit! Seems like we were asked half a dozen times how old he was and what his name was, and of course, we were told over and over about how darn cute he was! Funny how much pride you feel as a parent when someone compliments your kid. Mercy be granted to the one who says something negative about him one day!!!!!! (And by the way, Warren did great in the restaurant [unlike the last two times when he cried fiercely.] We decided to take him out of his carrier as soon as we got there, so he could get some energy out while we were eating our bread. When our food came, he didn't mind being in his seat for a while. It worked this time, but will it next time???)

Warren is growing and changing all the time. He has started to mimic us now. He gives a really high pitch quiet scream, then looks at us and smiles, then we do it back, then he does it again. We have done that for about 5mins nonstop with him!
He also "sings" in his bouncy. He has a frog hanging on it that plays music, and I would always sing with it. Well Warren started pulling on the frog himself and then making longer cooing sounds, only when the music plays. When it stops, he stops, and then he pulls the frog again and starts singing again!
Yep, my three and a half month old is advanced, for sure, and if you disagree and say all this development is just normal, don't tell me if you value your life... I will find you!

My bud was so funny to me. I just watched him for a long time, and he made me laugh aloud so hard that my belly moved! I also talked to his mommy, Kelly. She liked that.

He played on his play mat for about 40mins today, just moving and grabbing his toys. I, of course, had to get it on video.

Warren is doing wonderfully. He weighs 14.6lbs now, and he smiles at us all the time. He enjoys other people, too, which is great. He wants to stand and/or sit up all the time, and he jabbers several times a day. He likes to watch Cleo, but she is still keeping her distance. LOL
Super cute in his hat!
Trying to watch TV, but Momma keeps getting in the way.

Cleo rarely climbs on my lap or even sits beside me all day when I am holding or sitting next to Warren, but as soon as eight o'clock rolls around and he's in bed, Cleo finds her spot on me. Sometimes she even gives me tons of kisses!
This afternoon we went to the dollar theatre and watched the new XMen movie about Wolverine. I thought it was great; I was never bored one time, and the movie answered many of the questions I had about Wolverine's beginnings. Warren did an excellent job again. He sat up and watched the movie for about an hour, and then slept until the credits. Cool kid!
