Happy Monday,
This is Lisa with our weekend and baby update, and I hope you had a great weekend. We had a busy and fun weekend. We spent Friday evening at home with Bryce. We have been enjoying him so much. There are no words that can express just how precious and special he is to us, or just how much we love him. I love being a mommy so much and I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world. Okay enough of me being sentimental, and back to the update.

Saturday, Bryce stayed with my friend Lisa while Steve and I, along with my father-in-law Steve, and step-mother-in-law Linda went to Chicago to see The Blue Man Group. It was an excellent show. Steve and I saw the show in Las Vegas in 2002, but it was awesome seeing it again. We ended the evening with a tasty dinner at Giordano's pizzeria. Steve and I shared a delicious Chicago-style stuffed pizza, and because 1-2 pieces fill you up, we have some leftovers for the work week! We all had a great day in the Windy City, and it was nice to spend the day with family.

Sunday, we went to church and following the worship service, we enjoyed a brunch to celebrate Consecration Sunday. Then we spent the rest of the day at home and enjoyed our time together with Bryce before we start a new work week. While Bryce took a nap, we watched the movie Man on Fire, which was a good action movie, and Steve also watched the Packers Game. They actually won for a change, 33-25 against the Atlanta Falcons, and are now 2-7.

Well that wraps up our weekend, and now on the baby update. On Thursday, Bryce had his doctor's appointment for his 4 month well baby check-up. Bryce now weighs 13 lbs. 13 oz. and he was almost 27 inches long. He had four more shots which he didn't like at all, but they are needed to keep him healthy. I gave him infant Tylenol before the shots were administered and he didn't have a bad reaction to them afterwards. Bryce's doctor also gave us the go ahead to start him on solid foods. He said Bryce was at the age and weight where it was okay to start them, which is 4-6 months and between 12-15 lbs. He has been getting cereal mixed in with his formula bottles since the end of September, but the cereal and formula weren't enough to keep him satisfied. His doctor informed me to start him on vegetables first, because babies who start with fruit tend to get too used to the sweetness of the fruit, and then they won't eat their vegetables. He gave me several other suggestions as well, such as giving him the same vegetable for a week, in the evening, until he gets used to it, and trying the orange vegetables (sweet potatoes, carrots, and squash) because they are sweeter than green beans and peas. He also said that until Bryce gets used the vegetables, that I could mix fruit with his cereal bottles. Well, after a trip to the store to purchase baby food, we decided to give it a trial run on Thursday evening. We started with sweet potatoes, which to no surprise didn't go down real well, but his doctor said that's normal until he gets used to them, because it's something different. We haven't had any problems with the fruit because it is mixed in his bottle with his cereal, and he seems to like it. So far for fruits he's had peaches and bananas. By Sunday evening the sweet potatoes went down much better and he even opened his mouth willingly to the spoon for several bites. I apologize for writing so much about Bryce's eating habits, but since this is a baby update and this a big step for him, I decided to write about it in detail. That wraps up Bryce's update. We'll keep you informed and as Bryce continues to grow and progress. Have a great week and I'll be back next week.

Todays forecast grade: B

Now: At 7am with clouds but no precipitation in Wisconsin, temps are in the upper 20s. Brrr!

Synopsis: Weather forecasting is exciting again! High pressure just to our east will influence our weather today, keeping the rain and snow away but unfortunately not the clouds. All weekend I've been tracking a very strong area of low pressure, which is taking a "panhandle hook" route into our area tomorrow, grabbing a bunch of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and then sweeping north to dump a bunch of precip across our area. At this time it looks like it'll mostly be rain, perhaps changing to snow shortly before ending, but the dynamics are already there to make this winter an interesting one from a forecasting standpoint. In fact, northern Wisconsin is under a Winter Storm Watch for tomorrow evening, where 4-8" are expected!

Today: Cloudy and breezy, maybe a rain shower south, high of 45 central, upper 40s south. Rain chance 25%.

Tonight: Cloudy and breezy with a chance of rain showers. Lows low to mid- 30s. Rain chance 25%.

Tomorrow: Cloudy, rain becoming likely, and blustery. Highs lower 40s. Rain chance near 100%.

Tuesday night: Rain changing over to light snow, maybe 1" of accumulation! Lows near 30. Precip chance 80%. Accumulation will be more or less depending on when the rain changes over to snow. If it changes early, look for amounts to go up and vice versa.
Wednesday: Cloudy and colder behind the cold front, and maybe a few flurries too. Highs only in the lower 30s.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy, maybe some light snow or flurries late, highs lower 30s. Chance of snow 25%.
Friday: Mostly cloudy and breezy, more light snow or flurries possible late, highs mid- to upper 30s. Chance of snow 30%.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with a chance of even more light snow or flurries, highs upper 30s to near 40. Chance of snow 30%.
Sunday: Partly sunny, highs upper 30s to near 40.

Today in Las Vegas, Nevada: Sunshine, highs mid- 70s.

Today in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Morning fog, then scattered showers, highs lower 70s.

Today in League City and Pearland, Texas: A chance of thunderstorms, breezy, highs lower 80s.
