A Month of Many Firsts

We have had a busy March and Josiah has had a month of many firsts.

He went to his first collegiate sporting event, a softball doubleheader. My cousin Lori plays for Western Illinois University and her team came to Kansas City to play UMKC. This was the first time Josiah had been outside for more than just a few minutes. It was a beautiful day!

He even took a nap admist all the stimulation.

Later that week, the weather continued to be nice so mom took Josiah for his first run. Well actually it was mom who was running, while Josiah rode in the jogging stroller (thanks to some gracious friends who gave us the stroller!) We are hoping to use it more this spring - but not today as a snowstorm is coming in!

Another first for Josiah was March Madness! We have learned the Josiah loves to watch basketball on tv! He was very intent on watching the games. He was even helping mom with her bracket choices.

When all the games started last week, I just propped him up the couch and let him watch the games while I tried to clean house. It was a great babysitter.
The next day, Josiah enjoyed watching some more games, this time from the floor during his tummy time.

Finally, our last first for the month is the doctor said Josiah could start eating rice cereal. Well we started this week and like everything else so far, Josiah doesn't seemed phased by it. Besides learning how to swallow the cereal, he did great. Not really even making a face. Last night, he downed it like a champ!

Getting ready for the first bite. We couldn't wait to use the doggy bib, however it was a little big.

The actual first reaction of the first taste of rice cereal! Not too bad.

Downing it like a champ - well almost!

We know there are many more firsts to come, but it already seems like he is doing so much. Smiling whenever one of us talk to him. Giggling when he gets excited - this is thanks in large part to his 3-year old buddy Tarin who entertains him 2 days a week. We can't wait to see what the next month holds!
