This was Porters first time eating solid foods. It was so funny to watch his face. I guess it wasn't really that solid because we made it thin enough so that he could eat it. It turned out to be as runny as slightly chunky milk. (I know that sounds kind of gross). Anyway, he wanted it so bad that he would get mad if his mouth was empty and there wasn't more coming right then. He even wanted to try to feed himself. It was great fun. We will see how it works again as we make it a little thicker next time.

But in the end he was a very happy boy!

Porter wearing daddy's glasses

We went up to Utah for a good two weeks to spend time with Aunt Krista and Uncle Carl while mom and dad were in Norway. It was a lot of fun to be in the cooler weather. But then it got hot again.

We also got to watch Krista run two day straight and play soccer as well. It was fun because I didn't know anything about track but now I know a little. It was a lot of fun. We had a blast in Utah and Porter got to go on a plane for the first time. He just stared at the screaming baby next to us like "what is your problem?" So he was a good kid. Porter also turned four months old in May. But he did not want to sit next to his bear, he wanted to hold it and eat it.

California Vacation

We got to take our first real family vacation. It was so much fun to see so much family. And it was fun as parents to have everyone google over our little boy.
