New to programming, this should be an easy one!

I'm just starting to learn programming, and I ran in to a problem very early in my program. The first thing that I prompt the user for is the month, and that works fine. However it doesn't keep working after that, instead of just asking the user for the number of cookies made, it outputs the messages asking for the next 3 variables and then completes, so no other variables are entered. I'm stumped and I'm hoping that you can help me to get over this first obsticle so that I can continue working on my program.

code:

[code]#include
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int month;
int cook_made;
int reg_price;
int dis_price;

cout << "Enter the first three characters of the month: ";
cin >> month;
cout << "Enter the number of cookies made: ";
cin >> cook_made;
cout << "Enter the regular price for a box of cookies: ";
cin >> reg_price;
cout << "Enter the discount price for a box of cookies: ";
cin >> dis_price;

return (0);
}[/code]

and what I get when I run the program:

bash-3.00$ ./a.out
Enter the first three characters of the month: Dec
Enter the number of cookies made: Enter the regular price for a box of cookies: Enter the discount price for a box of cookies: bash-3.00$
