He experienced several "firsts" this week:
- rolling over (on Wednesday night)
- sitting in his high chair (on Thursday while Mama cooked dinner)
- drinking from a sippy cup (Friday, at pediatrician's request)
- rice cereal from a spoon (Friday, at pedi's suggestion)
- giggle (Friday)
The rolling over was not exactly intentional...he was on his tummy & mad. When he pushed with his hand, he flipped. He was momentarily startled to find himself on his back, but then quickly returned to wailing.
The sippy cup went okay. We removed the spill-proof piece so that the water just dribbles into Alex's mouth. His pediatrician wants him to have about 4 oz a day now, especially as the weather is getting warmer. She also suggested we try rice cereal because Alex is such a piggy! :) We started with cereal so runny it was almost like milk. We'll thicken it a little more each day until he really "gets" it.
The giggle gets a post of its own. Hopefully it doesn't take a zillion years to watch the video!
