Ready to eat again
Motrin and Antibiotics at their finest

It's not the taking care of him that's bad, it's the seeing him in so much pain that just breaks my heart. The only good that has come out of this is that all he wants to do is be held and snuggle and I can't get enough of the snuggling.
Ian and I are walking zombies... Over the course of the last two nights I think we've each got a total of no more than 6 hours of sleep, and things don't seem like they'll be looking up tonight.
AND, just when you thought it couldn't get worse - Cal's 2nd bottom tooth is breaking through the gums. AHHHH!

But Saturday we had a great day visiting with the fam and it was a full house at the Smiths since Luke and Logan stayed there too.
Poor Cal is still not feeling well and it’s so hard seeing him so miserable… He perked up a little this afternoon but just isn’t being himself. He has a 101 temp that won’t break. We thought it was a result of his intense teething but the on-call dr. said this a little high for a teething temp, so if it doesn’t break we’re taking him in tomorrow to hopefully figure out what’s going on.
Ian had to play too

Look like someone?
I gave this to Cal today to play with and he went nutty over it - he doesn't normally get like that over stuffed animals. I really think he thinks its Suzie. He was laughing at it, talking to it and cuddling it. Then when I picked him up from daycare fake Suzie was waiting in the car for him and again the second he saw it he went nutty.
Second new friend....
His new daycare buddy. Cal has lots of daycare friends but today I saw the cutest thing when I picked him up, him and another little boy (who's just a couple days older than Cal but has at least 5 pounds on him) were sitting on the floor playing together. No pic :(

2) He's outgrown his infant car seat.
3) I can no longer shop in the infant section at Gap Kids. We're now in the toddler section.

Up until yesterday, Cal would hang out in his jumper and do an occasional bounce, but when he was home with dad he got some serious hops in it.

We went to Ali & Brett’s for a BBQ Friday night. After the BBQ Ian took Cal home and I hit the town with friends. It was my first night out at a bar in over a year, crazy. I’m taking baby steps, I was home by midnight… Saturday I met Jenni, Lars and Lo at Ikea. We did some shopping and had lunch…. at Ikea. Then Ian, Cal and I went to another BBQ for Ian’s co-worker’s b-day Sat.
Ian’s spent every spare minute of the weekend working on the house and is now framing the front. More pics to come.

I say this pretty much everyday – Cal is amazing, and everyday I think he’s even more amazing than the last. He's a hoot to be around and not only brings a smile to our faces, he makes strangers' days brighter. He was in his stroller at the dr.'s office today and got a case of the giggles - the whole office thought it was great.
He had his 6 month check-up today. Stats below - basically he's huge...
Weight: 20 lbs. 9 ozs. -- 92%
Height: 29.25 inches -- OFF THE CHARTS!!! The dr. said that he's the lenght of an average 11 month old. Wow.
