Happy Halloween!

Callie had a great first Halloween! It was a warm night, so we were able to sit on the front porch and hand out candy! Callie loved the fresh air and all of the sights! We hope you all had a nice Halloween!

Happy Girl!

Callie had another great week! She is exploring more and you can see by her grabbing onto Mommy's face! She is also starting to enjoy reading more. While reading the book with Daddy yesterday, she was actually giggling and helped him turn a page (that might not have been on purpose). She is also starting to get really mobile! The picture above shows how much she is moving-she started in the middle of her gym mat and ended up off of both that and the blanket! We had a nice weather weekend and were able to get Callie outside, which she loves! It is really hard keeping her in her "bubble" and it is only October! We think she gets a little bored, so we are trying to vary her activities inside as much as possible and take advantage of every warm fall day we get!

15 Pounds!!

Callie passed the 15 pound mark-10 times her birth weight!! Such a big girl!! She has had a great week! Now that she figured out how to roll...she is doing it all of the time! We included a short video clip so that you can see her in action! We are continuing to work on getting her to like her cereal. We switched to Oatmeal, which seems to help a little, but she still prefers her Mama's milk! She always ends up with more on her face than in her mouth! From the picture above, you can see that it tired her right out!! She is also showing her personality more and more. She is more active and knows how to get what she wants! She is SO much fun!

Pumpkin Patch!

This weekend Callie had her first trip to the Pumpkin Patch! It was really nice to get out of the house in an open air environment. We are so restricted right now and will be until spring and this aweful flu season is over, so this was a nice break before the weather gets bad. Callie had a great time checking out all of the new sights. She particulary loved the hayride!

The other big event of the weekend was that Callie rolled over all by herself. Up until now, she had rolled several times if we positioned her right. Saturday she did it all by herself!! This was a big milestone for her adjusted age. Callie's Infants and Toddlers teacher had made two goals for her to try and meet by her appointment on Monday, to roll over and reach for her toys-our little superstar did both this weekend!

Callie had her first taste of cereal this week! In general she liked it and did well, but we couldn't resist including pictures of her initial reaction. Callie continues to get more interactive every day. She loves to babble with us, which can make meal times quite difficult since she would rather talk than eat!! She is definitely starting to experiment with sounds. We are even starting to hear consonants, which is good developmentally.
