1st Fever

Cal has his first real first fever this weekend. Poor kid is just exhausted, and cuddles, snuggles, nurses, and falls back asleep. It was up to 103 yesterday, and so far this morning is back down to 99.1. So far, we are not sure why, but he is battling something. Teething? Stomach virus? We have no clue. Hopefully he will feel better as soon as it came.

Poker & Damask tradition

Last night Fiona's sister Jeannie and crew came over for poker and dinner. We had a great time drinking & playing cards with John, Amy, Matthew, Thomas, Fi & Steve, Jeannie and Eric. We also took this picture, which if you recall, is the similiar pose taken back in October

Calvins' Friends

Friday we had little Georgia over and enjoyed yummy dinner and wine with the whole Waltzman crew.Yesterday we had a great time playing with Ella & Ellis, and their parents. We had them over for BBQ lunch, and then took a really nice walk throughout the playgrounds nearby. It was so nice to get us all together, and for our husbands to finally meet. Our kids & us have grown very close since meeting at the new moms group, so this was definately the first of many full family get-togethers.

Working at home: Cal's persepctive

Grandma Margie came in on Wednesday, & she took Calvin shopping! He not only got an air ball that he can grab himself, but he got the new convertible car seat. I am not ready to get rid of his portable & convenient infant seat yet, but he is getting bigger, and pretty soon we will have no choice.

Calvin has a big head, little body.

He got his 6 month shots on Friday, and measured 24.5 inches long, and 16 lbs, 12 oz. His weight is in the 50 percentile, his length is in the 25 percentile, and his head circumfrence is a whopping 75 percentile. He barely winced for his shots, as he was too busy playing with the measuring tape. Mr. Drool is going to sprout teeth seemingly anyday now, his gums are hard and he can't put enough objects in his mouth. This week we are trying out a new daycare, and so far so good. I like his new place thankgoodness! This past weekend Papa EE and Mama CC came to visit, and we went out to Sushi. Calvin loved the miso soup. He wolfed it down. He also got some applesauce this weekend, and was very happy.

Babysitters & Daycare

Well we finally did it, last Friday eve Dan & I left Calvin at home while we went out to see the Harry Potter movie that came out in October. Andrew watched Calvin for us, and it sounds like Calvin gave him a great adventure. He woke up much earlier than expected, and stayed up pretty much the whole time. But it was worth it, we all had a great time. Last week we went to Edward & Shireens B-day meals, and also the boat show. Lastly, Calvin is moving to a new daycare next week. It just didn't work out at Joans. Apparently, Calvin needed to be 'babied' too much, and takes time away from the other kids when he cries. I have to say, he is mostly a happy kid when with me, so I don't really understand. He seems to me like an average 6 month old. The new daycare is close to work so at least I can run to see him at lunch easier. Other milestones include lots of sitting up - still with assistance, and lots of food. He eats carrots, peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, rice cereal, oatmeal, and bananas. He is also getting heavy! I just moved him into size 3 diapers, and he is getting ready for 6-9 clothes. Today he will have his 6 month shots - poor kiddo.
