Gangsta Briggy

Okay, maybe not "gangsta"....but he definitely gained some major street cred with his cool black jordan outfit that tom's boss Luis gave as a gift. My little Briggy is already FIVE MONTHS! I cant believe how fast time is zooming by. The past few days I gave in and started feeding him a little rice cereal. He barely eats any...but I think for the month, get him used to the art of by 6 months we can start with the fun stuff. I thought he would be more into eating than he is...he always has a fit after I nurse him like he wants more...but I guess its not enough to really try hard and eat the rice. He really likes holding the spoon with me to put it in--actually, thats the only time the rice actually makes it all the way in his mouth. I really hope I'm doing the right thing...I was feeling so guilty with him whining and wanting more after almost all his feedings. I also think hes just GROWING LIKE A WEED! and doesnt know what to do with himself! He scoots and rolls like no other---I cant keep him contained on a quilt. If I go the the bathroom or walk into the kitchen, a minute later he's on the other side of the room! Now that he knows how to move, he does not like to be strapped into anything! I used to be able to put him in the swing and get some things done in the afternoon---but ohhhhh no! briggy wants in on the action. I've been putting him in the bjorn a lot more now, especially when doing little chores, just so I know he's okay and he enjoys scoping things out. His most favorite thing to do (other than eat) is sprawling out on his blanket, playing with toys and trying to scoot as far away from his original spot as possible. He is such a doll...I couldnt have asked for a better brigham.
