Eating, Crying, Smiling and Shaking!

We are moving forward full speed ahead! Malakai is developing so great. His little personality is coming out and it is fun! Last week, there was a day that Malakai ate over 40 ounces of formula and he was still not content. So that night, I told Eric that I think we should try feeding him rice cereal. Oh boy was that fun! I tried to post a video of it, but Eric has to make it shorter. He wasn't very fond of it the other day. So we have just been putting it in his bottle and once in awhile I would try to feed him some on a spoon. Yesterday, he did very well! If I would turn my head, he would put his bib in his mouth and suck on it. It must have tasted great from the cereal that he spit out! Here are some pictures!This is the first time he ate with a spoon! I really don't think he swallowed any of it!

This was the improvement! His bib was soaked (that was before he discovered what was on it!). This time I'm pretty sure he at least swallowed some of it!

I took this on the other day. He is getting so long. So I thought I would just post it. Tomorrow he has a doctor's appointment and then we'll know just how long he really is!These two are from his new toy. Well the toy is from Papa KP for Christmas, but he was to little to play with it. This is the first time that he actually held onto it and shook it. Now he loves to play with it!These three all go together. The first one is Malakai, checking out Tyler's new ball pit that he got for his birthday. The second one is his decision on whether he actually liked it and Tyler trying to persuade him to stop crying. Finally, Malakai just thought the whole deal was nuts and decided a nap seemed better! The two of them together are great!
Well that's all I got for now. I'll try and post more more often now that I'm really not working and have been getting up at 5:30 with Eric every morning!
Have a great day and God Bless!
