Andrew rolled over last night officially! Unfortunately it was 2:30 am when we discovered that he had rolled over, he did not like where rolling over brought him....tummy time! I had worked with him yesterday for a while, he just didn't really want to do it by himself just yet. Or he would get himself over and then his arm would be stuck and he was just content laying there with his arm stuck then try to get it out. At 2:30am we were thrilled about his new skill, but wished it could have been found at a later hour of the morning!
Andrew started eating rice cereal once a day. The pics below are of his very first time trying cereal. He is still getting use to the spoon and the new taste and texture. He still has not finished a whole bowl but we are getting there. However, for the first time in a long time, last night Andrew did not wake up between 5-6am for a feeding. He just needed more that what I was giving him nursing. So, I am loving the new stages and Andrew is bringing much joy to both Mike and I.
He got the runny cereal ALL OVER HIM! He pretended to gag on the spoon a few times but he wasn't really gagging, I guess that is the natural reaction to a new object in a baby's mouth. Mommy and daddy both took turns feeding Andrew.
I'm sorry it has been a while since I posted pics, we have had a busy life these past couple of weeks. My friend and college roommate, Leah, came to visit for a few days before Fall camp. We all then went to Giddings, TX for Worldview's fall camp. The first few days were great, hanging out in amp and with the staff. And then... the flu! Students started dropping like flies and so Mike, Andrew and I stayed mostly indoors. Then on Wednesday I got really sick. After testing negative for strep, the flu and other things they determined that they did not know what I had, so it must be a random virus. A had a high fever and muscular pain for a couple of days and a lingering headache for a couple days after that. Andrew, thank the Lord, did not get sick. Mike did an awesome job at protecting him and taking care of the both of us that week. Another friend from college, Jimmy, drove with us from Giddings to Midland to spend a few days with us. We get to see him once or twice a year so it has been good to hang out with him. Andrew is now, we think, cutting a tooth. He is chewing on anything and is extra irritable. I hope the tooth comes soon!

I just love this picture, he is so precious!
