Little Man Update

Calvin has entered a whole new world of culinary delights! He ate his first solid food (rice cereal) two weeks ago and has also tried oat cereal. Tomorrow we are going to delve into the wonderful world of vegetables!

The first bite - YUM YUM YUM!

I've got this down now!

Calvin is working on tooth #6 already. He will chew on anything available, but his very favorite items are tags and straps and buckles. We realized this when he started being able to get around by rolling - and would always roll straight to his swing, where he figured out that he could pull the strap through the bottom of the swing and chew on the buckle. Other top picks
include the strap on his changing pad, the strap on my leather change purse, the tag on his Boppy pillow, and the camera strap, as seen here.

It seems like every week he is reaching a new milestone. First he was able to push himself into a sitting position from his stomach, then he started pushing onto his hands and knees, and then he was crawling before we knew it! A week ago, on his 7-month birthday, we found him
standing up in his crib, on top of his crib bumper, hanging onto the side railing! As I type this Calvin is pulling himself up into his bouncy seat going after the most desirable object in the room - the strap on the seat, of course!
