we also thought that he wasn't getting enough from breastfeeding, for monster babies need lots of food to grow, so we started him on rice cereal. we weren't sure how he'd do with spoonfeeding but he did just fine, but i'm not all that surprised since he's been quite fixated with our food as we ate it at dinnertime. he's had a couple of rice cereal meals now and it hasn't helped with the sleep sitch.
but otherwise, he's my perfect little monster. so what if i'm a little bit tired? i just need to remind myself that these times are fleeting and i'll never have them again.
we just very recently put up the jolly jumper. monster just loves it but he just didn't know what to make of it when i first put him in it but he got the hang of it pretty quickly. i can't believe it's taken us so long to put it up. little fraser's been in his for several weeks now thanks to his daddy's handy dandy blanket rig. it was this brilliant contraption that kept a wee little horchie out of toruble on family camping trips. i can't wait to use it up at grizzley cause he'll probably be in a world of trouble by the summertime.

some of you might know that chinese people wear jade because it's supposed to improve your health or some kind of mumble jumble like that so the one that conrad's sporting here is one that my sister, brother as well as myself wore when we were babies. it was given to us from our maternal grandmother. i thought that's pretty neat.
conrad's been rolling around in his crib and one day i found him sleeping on his front, guess i can't do much about that.
