Calvin at 6 months

He is 6 months old this week. It's flown. Before Calvin's birth my friend Anna, who has two children, mentioned that her second seemed like an infant far longer than her first. As if she had to wait longer to know who that baby was.

It didn't make sense at the time, but now it does. Abigial at 4 months seemed so full of personality. Every new thing she did made her seem so 'old'. Calvin has seemed like a newborn in comparison....because my comparison is running around the house in her underwear  and a tie while making up songs.
So it's been a lot of fun this past month watching Calvin start to blossom. He's sitting up, he's jabbering, he's reaching for what he wants and laughing at Abigail running around in her underwear.  He's 15.5 pounds, 26 inches long, has more smiles than any baby I've ever met, and is generally a good sleeper.
This is also his 5 month photo.....I just never got it up.
He also loves his daddy. And, coincidentally, happens to be wearing his daddy's outfit in this picture. I love that it says 'superbaby' all over. Makes me wonder if this is, perhaps,the precursor to "If you think I'm handsome you should see my daddy." and "I'm cute" .......but Calvin wears it well.

As a side note: One of my favorite aspects of digital cameras is seeing the progression of the photo shoot. Some are hilarious; this particular one was just sweet. So I'll let you see a few ( because I know you're dying to).

He makes me smile. 

It helps that I'm his favorite right now. 
Halfway into his first year we declare him a keeper.


  1. I posted a super cute video of Calvin and Emmett sharing their first swing together on my blog! They were both so delighted!

  2. Also, I figured out why my comments were being rejected... well not WHY, but I did figure out that if I use Google Chrome, they just disappear into cyberspace when I hit publish. That's really weird, since I use Chrome for everything and your blog is the only thing that acts like that. Thought you should know so you can work on lifting the voodoo curse or whatever!

    1. hmmm, that's going to take some thinking on. Glad you found the source and thanks for the video, that made my night!
