This weekend was my Granny's Birthday. So we started the weekend by having a work day at her house to take care of a few things that needed to be done. Then on Sunday we all went to see her. (She is currently recovering from surgery in a rehab facility in Orange Park. She is well on her way to coming home!) We had cake and ice cream, and of course took pictures of all the families.
Here is Cale getting his first taste of ice cream :)
Cale went for his 6 month check-up today. We saw Dr. Hardman, and she said that he is doing great! He is now 19lbs 12 oz and 27 1/2 inches (which are both in the 75%). He is a growing boy! He did good for everything exept the shots (but can you blame him?). In the past he has screamed while he was getting the shots, but then would calm down as soon as I picked him up. Not today! He screamed and scream and screamed! Poor thing, I felt so bad for him. But I finally got him calmed down and he was fine. He slept on the way home. We go back again at 9 months.
I had to add this adorable picture of Cale in his Valentine pjs. My little handsome man!
Bryan and I have never really done much on Valentine's day, so why start this year?
Cale got me some beautiful flowers and he thought it was a great idea to make Daddy a cake. And that is about the extent of our Valentine's celebration. We just spend the day together at home and that was perfect for us!
We took Cale 2 weeks ago to have his 6 month pictures made. He is getting so big, so fast! He now has a tooth, can sit up for short periods by himself, and is scooting all over the place! I cant believe how fast my little boy is growing up.
So I know this should be wordless, but I had to explain. Cale stayed with Michelle (our pastor's wife) this past Monday because our regular sitter was out of town. Well, Bro Wayne and Michelle are from Alabama - that is what makes this photo so funny. She took it more for Bryan than me. Then she explained it was "the only stuffed animal she had in the house" :)
Cale and I are battling colds right now! Yuck! He ran a fever all day yesterday, but it seems to be gone now. So, he and I are staying home from church because we dont want to spread our germs. Hopefully we will both be better soon!
Cale is learning how to sit up. Some days he does better than others. Bryan's parents were over Sunday for the Super Bowl and I snapped a few shots of them playing on the floor with Cale, trying to get him to sit up.
Cale officially has his first tooth. He has been teething for quite a while now. But his gums never really got swollen or real red, so I was not expecting teeth any time soon. Boy was I wrong. I was giving him some teething tablets this afternoon when I realized there was something hard there. You can just barely see it, but you can definately feel it! Once it really shows I will snag a picture of it....
I can't believe that my baby boy is officially 6 months old. It seem just like yesterday he made his grand appearance (on his own time!). He is still like that today. He is so laid back and in no hurry to do anything. He can roll over, but chooses not too. He can scoot, but is not in any hurry to crawl. We are working on sitting up. He does good sometimes and other times he gets too excited and forgets what he is supposed to be doing. No teeth yet, although he is teething and drooling like CRAZY!!! He knows his name and loves to talk. He has the best smile and is happy almost all of the time. We have been blessed with such a wonderful bundle of joy! Love you little man!!!!
