the power of the cheerios logo

Two nights ago, I was fixing dinner for the kids and had the baby in the bouncy seat on the kitchen island (his favorite place these days). He was strangely calm and quiet and I couldn't figure out what had gotten him so relaxed. Well, I finally figured it out! He was fascinated with the Cheerios box that was next to him on the island. I bet he spent about 45 minutes staring at that bold black Cheerios logo! It was incredible!

Who needs to spend lots of money on expensive toys for babies, when a box of Cheerios can do the same job, if not better, of stimulating and entertaining your kid?! Haha...

It was so neat to watch Robby look at the logo. You could almost see the little wheels turning inside his brain. I am so amazed every day at how much he is taking in and processing! He truly is learning so much and growing so much!! Wow.. and to think, he's going to be ONE MONTH OLD already on Saturday! Wow. The first month has flown by!!

(that almost looks like a smile, doesn't it? :) )
And for those of you that are interested in growth percentiles, he had a check up yesterday and he now weighs 10 pounds, 8 ounces and is 21 1/4 inches long. (remember when he was born he weighed 9 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long)
So, he is now in the 75th percentile for his height and weight! That really made me feel proud of myself as a breastfeeding mama! :)
Have a blessed day!


  1. I could look at pictures of him all day! He is so beautiful! :)

  2. love the look. I think it IS a smile. You need to watch that boy(clint) with the scissors!lol! But Your son looks happy:)
