My little man is four months old now! I wonder everyday how time manages to pass by so quickly. Caleb has just started solids. Right now his favorite food is squash. He just can't get enough of it! Everyone warned me that it would be awful changing his diapers when we started solids. I'm sorry, but no one prepared me for the reality! The first diaper change I got after he tried sweet potatoes was at 4:30 am. I blissfully greeted my little angel and he smiled back at me innocently (now that I think back, that little sucker set me up!). When I laid him on the changing table, all of that early morning glory came to a screeching halt! I thought I would absolutely puke! Lesson learned: Let Daddy change the diapers at 4:30 in the morning!
Caleb goes for his check up next week and for his second round of shots. When I weighed him on our WiiFit last week, he was very close to sixteen pounds. The kid is growing in leaps and bounds! He fits in six month clothing most of the time now and some nine month outfits. Every time I turn around, I am packing up more baby clothes. I've learned to take pictures the first time he wears something because it may very well be the last time as well. I've got to get him so more clothes before he grows out of everything in his closet!
Caleb has also started saying "ga ga". I think he amazed himself with his new talent because that's all he seems to babble for the past two days! He wiggles so much when he sleeps. I can put him to sleep lying one direction in his crib and when I check on him, he's already turned 180 degrees! He also flips from his back to his sides now and seems to amuse himself regularly with that! For the past week or so, Caleb has slept through the night.
I can't believe how much he changes from day to day. He has to be one of the happiest babies I have ever seen in my life. I'm so grateful that he has such a cheerful personality. If it stays this way, he will be very blessed in life and that's all his mother could ever pray for!
