He did GREAT! He had 3 shots including a flue shot, and some polio stuff. He cried so briefly it was over and done within seconds. The nurse was super quick! I also think it helped that today was a good nap day. More on that later....
So Harrison's Stats:
Weight: 16lb 12oz 30%
Height: 271/2 inches 85%
Head: 43.6cm 50%
Harrison is still long and skinny like his dad! The Doctor said he is burning lots of calories as he is starting to get more mobile, and once the solids increase he will start filling out again.
So, more on the naps...
My days now fall into two categories, "Good nap day" and "Bad nap day".
A good nap day means Harrison has a 9am, 12noon and 3pm nap. He needs his sleep he is super grumpy without it, just like me ;-)
We never (well other than once last week!) have a a problem with the 9am nap, he has a bath, gets dressed and down he goes down, no fuss! We seldom have a problem with night time either, straight to bed at least 90% of the time. But sometimes he just wont go down for his other naps, even though i know his tired. So we are reading Good Night Moon before every nap, and it seems to be sinking in that Story = Sleep. Its all about routine!

For those of you who remember last year we had a fair few Christmas tree ornaments vanish. Lots of glass balls disappeared......into Guinness's MOUTH! Yes he ate glass, silly puppy! So we have already had one casualty on the tree this year, before the tree was even up an hour! I am off to purchase baby (Dog) gates tomorrow!

I made pureed Apples and Carrots. I need to go to Wholefoods to buy more organic veggies, Kroger has a limited supply. I used the baby food blender I was given at my baby shower, and it did the trick so well. Just steam the veggies, puree in the blender, add water or breast milk to make to the right consistency and freeze.
I will let you know how the carrots go down tomorrow, he has to eat peas again today as one food has to be introduced at a time to check for allergies.

A picture of the peas he got last night.
Finally, after eating his peas last night, and some rice cereal this morning, Harrison napped for his usual hour again this morning! Yay! He also napped again after lunch, so he seems back on track and a happy, satisfied baby who's tummy is full enough to sleep.

More tummy time.
Harrison rolling over, he did this at 11 weeks, but this is the fist time i have it on Video.
Blink and you miss it!
Harrison went to the Doctors this weekend. He has goopy ears. Fortunately he doesn't have an ear infection, the Dr said its probably a virus as he has been grumpy and had cold symptoms. I have some ear drops to soften the goop!
He has also been waking up more at night, a few times last week and the last 3 days. I am so not used to it I had to take a nap the last 2 days! I cant decide if its from being sick, a growth spurt or if he is ready for solids as night waking can be a sign.

As any Mom will know, when you get pregnant your feet grow. I have been living in flip-flops or too tight shoes since I got pregnant, hoping, no PRAYING, my feet would return to their nice normal pre-preggo selves. No such luck!
So, I mentioned to Matt that I needed to replace my "Shoe Collection". He suggested i think of it more as "Some Shoes" than an actual collection. Anyway, I started with 3 pairs, Trainers, Comfy winter walking anytime shoes and some nice heels for Dates and such. My "Collection"Still needs a lot of work as far as I am concerned but its a start.
Oh and I almost forgot, I used to wear a size US7.5/UK5 I am now a US9/UK6.5!!!! Can you believe 1 1/2 sizes! Crazy feet! If you have big feet already and have a baby you must end up with giants feet!
On Saturday night we stayed in and all watched the Penn State Vs OSU game. Matt should probably be blogging about this, but anyway, it was a BIG deal! PSU had not won at OSU for 30 years. I have never seen Matt so worked up, he was pacing the floor like those men in films waiting outside a delivery room! Anyway, PSU won, thank goodness! Go Penn State!
On Sunday we did more gardening, we dug out more big ugly bushes in the back garden. I have not taken photos yet, but I took one of Harrison in his new hat! He just chilled outside and watched us while we worked!
Harrison decided to eat his feet for the first time. I wish I could still stretch like that!
Harrison eating his feet.
The big FOOD finale!
We tried Harrison on solids on Sunday night! It was a mixed experience.....
We made up 1 tsp of baby rice cereal and 3 tsp breast milk. Its a lot like just milk at this point, just to get him used to eating off a spoon and to practice using his tongue. Here's how it went!
