This blog is dedictated to our son, Zander.

After the beep, please leave a message...

Chez McLane has been a hive of activity this week. In Zander news, he weighed in at 12# 5oz. at the pediatritian's office. He also got another four vaccinations - which he barely flinched at and certainly slept no more than twenty minutes to recover from.

Zander started eating rice cereal last week. We tentatively tried it when we realized that he was staring at us while we ate and making chewing movements with his mouth. He took to it like white on rice, no pun intended. He's also tried banana which he likes. We cooked up some squash the other night and he'll try that later in the week. We have to just laugh at all the guidelines about feeding babies their first foods - wait until they're in a good mood, take it slowly, let the baby decide how much he wants to eat. This kid is voracious. The only thing he's rejected so far is rice cereal with just water (which tastes like very nice sand). We usually put some juice in it. He's still nursing, of course.

I'm eagerly awaiting the finger food stage because I literally can't put anything in my mouth now without being yelled at by him. And in case you haven't heard, this baby is not a big sleeper. He sleeps well, but not often.

Well, the image loader for blogger isn't working right now so you'll just have to use your imagination... here's a clue: he's still the cutest baby EVER! ;)
