Cal is 6 weeks old today. He is getting more and more animated, is smiling a lot and is starting to like bath time! He has yet to sleep through the night but we feel like he's on the verge of doing so. If you haven't come to visit yet and see the little guy - you should soon!
Cal's favorite holding position

Ian and I realized how few nursery songs we know the words to so when we sing to Cal we find ourselves frequently singing the WSU fight song since it's one of the few tunes we know all the words to. We expect W-A-S-H-I-N-G-T-O-N S-T-A-T-E C-O-U-G-S to be the first words that he's able to spell.

Over the weekend Cal also had his first night of 6.5 hours of consecutive sleep! It was wonderful. After waking up to eat he then went want to bed for another 1.5 hours.

Cal is also starting to smile more and more everyday and we were even able to catch a little smile at dad on camera.
If you see the little guy, he's come down with a little baby acne. Don’t mention it to him - he's a little self-conscious ;)

We know that he likes to eat… A LOT, he takes after his mom and is a bit stubborn, he loves his surrounding so much that he doesn’t like to miss any minute of the day therefore he chooses to nap very little, he loves his room, he likes to hang out in his crib and watch his bumper and listen to his rainforest soother, he loves to rock in his new glider chair, he loves car rides, LOVES to cuddle and has mastered scooting to get closer to mom and dad when napping next to them, likes to be rubbed when going to sleep, likes warm wipes when having his diaper changed, loves having his butt warmed with a hair dryer during a diaper change (yes, this is a little weird but a nurse told us that little boys loves this), likes being read to, and he loves being held all the time.
Things he dislikes: taking baths, napping during the day, being hungry, and sleeping alone.
Also, for those that haven’t seen the pictures, here’s the link to Cal’s professional pictures that we had taken in Wenatchee. If you watch the slide show, have your volume on.

Last week Suzie seemed to have come down with a case of depression and stopped eating and didn’t curl her tail for several days. Ian and I have been giving her some extra attention and going to Wenatchee apparently snapped her out of this and she’s back to her feisty self.

Callahan and I survived our first week with Ian back at work. I was very unproductive as I was amazed with how time consuming taking care of Callahan on my own is but who needs a clean house when you have a precious little baby to spend time with.
Here are some pictures from this weekend. We’ll post more pics in the next couple of days. Just wanted to get in some blogging while we have grandma and grandpa to watch the little guy (which has been SO nice to have the extra hands).
