Preston can crawl!!

Preston is now on the move. He crawled for the first time on Wednesday May 18th - the day he turned 29 weeks old. We got home from grocery shopping and I put him on the floor so I could go fix his bottle and he immediately scooted toward a toy. I couldn't believe my eyes! He had figured it out quickly and was moving around like a champ. I got his big milestone on camera and video - which wasn't easy because he was following me wherever I moved :) I'm so proud of my lil' buddy!

I also found tooth #2 the same day. I've been checking in his mouth but haven't seen anything. We were outside doing yard work and I got a good peek into his mouth and saw the tooth. He's been a great teether so far - I hope we continue to be lucky. I can't wait to see his big toothy grin in a few weeks.

That night, he tried green beans for the first time. I couldn't find fresh ones that looked good, so I ended up using frozen ones. He seemed to like them ok. I don't know if he wasn't too fond of them or if he was just too tired to eat. I'll try again today. Fresh green beans are my favorite veggie.

Mother's Day

Here's some pictures from my first Mother's Day as a Mother :)

We went to the park and Preston got to play on the swings. It was a beautiful day and I am so thankful to have this sweet little boy in my life.

^Ignore the super dirty swing!^

^You're right, Mommy loves you!!^

^He fell asleep in the stroller at the park. I love this picture of his feeties sticking out ^

^The 2 of us with the pretty tulips sent by my dad^

Mmmmm, bananas!

Preston tried bananas for the first time yesterday - they were a hit!

He's now 27 weeks old. He's getting very close to crawling! He can get up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth. It won't be long before I'll be chasing him around the house!

Dr.'s and avocados

Preston had his 6 month check up at the dr. last Friday. He's 14.3 pounds and 24 inches. A little on the smallish side for his age, but he's healthy and doing well. He loved stomping on the crackly paper that was on the table. Next appointment isn't until the end of July when he's 9 months old.

We introduced him to avocado on Sunday. He loved it! Mama loves avocado too, but I prefer it with jalapeno, lime, salt, pepper, chips and a margarita! It's so much fun making his food. Next up is bananas - mmmmmm!

^MuShu had to make her rounds and check on the baby^
