A Weekend of Firsts

Ryker has had a very big weekend so far. Let me explain.

Because of his extreme acid reflux problem, we decided to go ahead and begin Ryker on solids. When I say solids,  I mean rice cereal. This was the best decision we have ever made! So yesterday, we fed him three ounces of his formula, then mixed about another ounce of milk into the rice cereal for a perfect combination! He loved it!

Of course he voluntarily spit some out at first, but he ended up eating most of the bowl! The best part was that he did not spit up ONCE after the feeding. Plus, he only spit up one more time that night. This was definitely a good decision.

Another big event for our little guy occurred earlier today. 

Every morning, Ryker loves to sit in his Bumbo and watch Mommy get ready for the day. He always watches very intensely... I know he is learning with everything I do. Anyways, the electric toothbrush is continually intriguing for him because of the sound it makes. He always gets a smile on his face when we brush our teeth in front of him. So Austin and I decided to buy him a small toothbrush! And this morning, Ryker experienced brushing his teeth gums for the first time!

We are so proud of our little guy! He is just growing up so fast. Where have the days gone?? Next thing we know, he will be walking!
