Anderson is definitely teething! He has two bumps on his bottom gums and has been gnawing on everything! He has ALL the symptoms so we have been giving him Tylenol and some Orajel. Poor little guy. He slept a lot this weekend and was just a bit fussy, which is so different from his normal disposition.
Even though he was a little big fussy we had a great weekend with him. The weekends really go fast and we wish we could spend more time with him. This weekend Anderson tried a few bits of rice cereal and didn't quite know what to think of it. We figured since he is 5 months old and is a big guy that he was ready for a few bites here and there. We aren't going to start more solid foods for awhile. Besides playing with our little guy we got a lot accomplished. I am running the Rock and Roll half marathon in Dallas in a few weeks so I had to get a long run in. The weather didn't cooperate because it was cold and snowy all weekend. James got me a pass to try out a local gym and I went and ran on the treadmill. He also hooked my road bike up to his trainer and I rode it on Sunday. Besides working out we cleaned house and booked our spring break trip. We decided to go to California because it is a short flight and we know it is warm. We did think about Mexico but want to wait and go when we can spend a few more days. Thanks for the ideas! We would like to go to Atlanta sometime too but it is a longer flight. Someday!

Our big boy!

Teethers are a must!

Anderson ended up wearing most of his rice

Some place warm sounds heavenly right now!

I can't believe he's getting teeth in. Boy the time is flying by so fast.
Have a great trip!

Melissa, thanks for the updates. It's fun to see how Anderson is doing! Here's a little hint for the teether: freeze wet washclothes. The nubs on the towel feel good on the teeth, and the washclothes are cold but not too cold when frozen.

Hope to see you guys soon!

Anderson CAN'T be old enough for teeth already! Can you tell I'm depressed about our babies growing up? I just have to look on the bright side--they get to be more and more fun!

Good luck with the teeth! Molly cut her two year molars just in time for Rayna to start cutting teeth! :-)

Look at that little teether! He is such a doll.
I give you credit for going long distance on a treadmill, I rather freeze. My attention span is way to short :)
