Weekend and My Little Man Update

Cale has ended up with with the nickname "Little Man" because he looks so much like a little man. All that hair really makes him look older.... Well, anyway, I thought I would give an update on him and our weekend while he naps.

Friday was a good day. It was one of the first times that Cale woke up from a nap and was not screaming (he is usually about to starve to death....or so he thinks). But he woke up and was so happy. I just stood there talking to him and he was smiling and trying to talk back. He has started making noises, but he still in not quite sure exactly how to do it....we are working on it though!

After nap time we went on our first shopping trip! We had to go to Babies R Us to get him some more clothes. Because we didnt find out what we were having, we did not get a lot of clothes. And what we did get after he was born, was mostly newborn stuff. Well my little man is growing like a weed, so he is a newborn no more! I knew that Babies R Us was having a big sale, so we went and met my mom and get him lots of clothes (on sale I might add).

Saturday was of course the Florida game. Cale and Daddy chilled on the couch for the game. Cale even tried to get in on some remote action :) We were very excited that the Gators won!

Because Cale is now starting to focus on things, I decided to get out one of his little activty mats for him to lay under. He seems to like looking at the side of it more than the actual toys that are hanging from it :)

Saturday night we went to Jason and Jenny's for the annual fantasy football draft party. This was Cale's first experience of a crazy get together. There are 10 guys in the league and all of them are married and have at least 1 kid. Almost everyone was at the draft and there were 4 kids under the age of 3 running around just being kids. On top of the kids, most of the guys are loud mouths anyways.....So needless to say it was LOUD!!! The funny thing is that Cale slept through most of it. He fell asleep on the way over and slept until he was ready to eat. Then he ate and was only up about an hour and he was asleep again. At least now we know that the loud noise doesnt really affect him!

Sunday started out as a lazy day. Bryan was actually home during the morning time when Cale is most alert and happy. So it was nice that Bryan was able to spend that time with him. That afternoon Papa and Granny came over to watch Cale for us. Bryan and I went to JCP to get him some clothes for work. We also picked up 2 Gator onesies for Cale. I cant wait for him to get to wear them! I love JCP because they are forever having a sale. We saved $133 yesterday!!!! It was a little depressing though because I didnt get anything for myself :( I am still working on losing baby weight. Although I mostly gained weight in my belly while I was prego, my thighs and butt put on few few pounds too! I cant get any of my pants on....which is very depressing. I only have a few more weeks until I go back to work. I hope by then I can wear my clothes again. If not, we will be making another shopping trip!

Hi, I saw your blog through Hollie's! Your little man is too cute! He really does have a lot of hair; my Hubby's family was trying to figure out who had more hair, our little guy, his Grandfather or his Uncle, ha! Love all the pics on your site, beautiful!!

Okay- so cute! Love the update and still love that hair! Like I said the other night, my second little princess left a number on the thighs and rear end, too. I'm going to try to start walking or something again now that Delaney is in preschool 3 mornings a week. Let me know if you ever want to join me :)
