4 months old!

It's hard to believe it's been 4 months! Jason has changed so much. He's playing with toys pretty regularly now, growing like a weed and really starting to grab onto stuff (yeah, watch your hair!).
When I cleaned the house a couple weeks ago I decided to occupy Jason by putting him in front of the fishtank. Appearently, I really enjoyed this when I was a baby. Jason seemed to too, so that was nice.
We had his 4 month doctors appointment last week and here are his stats:
Weight: 14lbs 2 oz (32%)
Height: 25.75 inches (78%)
Head circumference: 16.75 (56%)
looks like he's a tall one....a tall Bender! Who'd a thunk it?
We had a nice visit with Dan's parents at the end of February. We decided to get his 3 month pictures taken. We were a bit late since he was going to turn 4 months in a couple days but what can you do?
Here's the link to the pictures:
just put my name in as cathy bender with a "c"...morons spelled my name wrong. They're morons because I spelled it out for them and they appearently think a "K" is spelled with a "c" or something. Anyway, there are some pretty good shots there. I was a bit disappointed that he didn't smile, but I think he was pretty overwelmed. Good thing we have plenty of good smiley pictures of our own.

The big thing around here is we started Jason on rice cereal last night! He took to it pretty well. He's still figuring the whole thing out but since we mixed it with breastmilk at least the taste wasn't too foreign. He was in a good mood most of the night and slept well so overall it seems to be a good thing.
it looks like he's smiling through the goo here:
He kept grabbing the bowl like "hurry up mommy, you don't have to wait for the food to actually stay in my mouth, bring on the food!"
here's the video of the whole thing (bear with it, like the baptism one, it's a bit messed up for the first few seconds but it gets right)
