Well, it's not our birthday too...but we have had lots of birthdays to celebrate since our last post. (Sorry I'm a bit belated--but you can see we've been celebrating!)
So, before our Callan news--Happy belated birthdays to Stephanie and Christine! And Happy Birthday to my Dad! Callan bought his first Grandparent's card...exciting stuff!
Since last we met, our most note able milestone is a mark of independence---holding our own bottle!!!! We have also been very busy working on our leg strength. Callan kicks at lightning speed (so fast the camera can't catch him--see his blur!) and when you are holding him he loves to "stand." I also think we have had a bit of a growth spurt....suddenly our size 6 months aren't nearly as roomy as they were a week ago!
Callan attended his first dinner party at our friends Jenny & Jerry's! (It was Callan's favorite--BYOB!) We had beautiful weather, delicious food and great company--lots of fun!
Last week Callan had his new longest car ride ever! Callan's Aunt Gwynne and I took him to Lincoln for a photo session with Aunt Beth. We (me) had so much fun! Callan's primary goal of the shoot was eating....so between glugs Beth was able to take pictures and Gwynne and I rattled, squeaked and babbled to try and coax a smile out of him. Teamwork!
We also had Gwynne, Christine and Stephanie over to celebrate the girls' birthday, he was calm enough to let everyone hold him for a minute or two. He was so tired from the photo shoot and the birthday party that he went to bed early. Just in time for us to watch The Office (oh, how I have missed it!) what a little angel!
Today I went home for lunch to celebrate my Dad's birthday. What a treat to get to see my baby boy and my parents in the middle of the day! It made it hard to come back to work!
This weekend we are looking forward to a visit from Uncle Ethan, Aunt Liza and puppy-cousin Baxter!
P.S. Speaking of celebrations---our love and congratulations to Amanda on passing her boards and becoming a licensed Aesthetician! Hooray!!!
