Slacker

I've been unhappy with how few pictures I've been taking of Caleb lately. I went a little camera crazy the other day. ;)


He really grows by leaps and bounds. He discovered his toes the other week. He's working harder on sitting up.


He also disregards all my begging for him to stop growing. He might be 4.5 months old now, but wears 9 month outfits! A doctor appointment earlier this month put him at 18 pounds and 12 ounces. I'm sure he's over 19 pounds now. My back would have given out a long time ago if it weren't for chiropractor visits. :)


Caleb is still breastfeeding. He shows no interest in food yet, even when we bring it within inches of his hands. But he does enjoy going after the keyboard when he sits in mine or Chris's laps.

I shall blame all future typos on him. ;)

Leah ... Congrats on continuing to nurse Caleb.

My oldest son weighed 7# even the day we went home, he doubled in 6 weeks and was 30# the day he turned 9 months.

He is 29 now: 6'5" and less than 200#, sometimes as low as 160 but usually 180 or so.

He nursed for the first year then started foods. Weaned at 22 months, when his sis was born.

Thanks for the updated pics ... he is a cutie!

what a cutie Caleb is! Isn't it AWESOME that you are supplying everything he needs to be growing and thriving!??! ;) My 1st was like him in the 80%tile for her weight.. and wearing bigger sizes than her age.

I didn't feed her even rice cereal until she was 6 months old. These days the whole world rushes babies into baby foods, and even table foods... I will never regret holding off on nothing except breast milk the first 6 months! ;) None of my kids now 6 and 3 years old have food allergies either.

Keep enjoying your little man... it won't be long until he's up on all fours and cursing!

Love from Texas!
