Six months

And three days, but who’s counting?

So here’s where we’re at. We have a little boy who isn’t so little anymore at 8.3 kilograms (that’s 18.26 pounds for those of you using antiquated measurement systems 😉 He’s sitting up for short periods, gradually getting to be longer periods. And it doesn’t seem to bother him when he tips over and bangs his head, but we usually only have him sit on the softest floor (the carpet in the lounge).

He’s also rocking on hands and knees, and watching the cats intently. They’re going to be his motivation for crawling.

No solid food yet, but it may happen in the next couple weeks. I was thinking about doing it this week but there’s been other things going on, and he’s been grumpy (I think it’s the change in weather – sunny & hot to cool & rainy in the space of a couple days), and I want to make sure he’s through this grumpy patch before we shake things up. He has two bottom teeth and they’re SHARP.


Darrin calls this the “roadkill” shot. This is the blanket my mom made for him. My dad’s a truck driver, so of course we have to have truck stuff.


Panda bear, the new favourite toy. Panda gets its own special noise. He seems to go for the soft toys more than the hard plastic ones.


Don’t we all feel like this after a big day out?

Baby update

Well. Caleb has TWO teeth now. And he’s fussing & wiggling on my lap at the moment so this post is going to be short. And he’s been rocking on his hands & knees for a while now, so it’s only a matter of time before he’s chasing the cats. Bring it on!

Oh, this is way too much fun…

Darrin watching old Muppet Show episodes reminded me of the Borkifier: an English-to-Swedish Chef translator. Here you can translate a block of text or an entire web page to Swedish Chef, Pig Latin, Valley Speak, Elmer Fudd, or even Redneck.

Oh, and yes, please, by all means post any gems in the comments. 🙂
