This Week's Firsts

Caleb is still working on laughing. He really isn't anywhere near it, yet, but he gets all wiggly, his eyes go wide--as does his mouth--and you get the idea that he would be giggling away if he could.

He went to the dr. this past week. After his eye infection, he continued to have a low-grade fever, and then on Monday a little rash showed up on his chest. So off to the dr. we went. Turns out the low-grade fever was really nothing. Temps taken under the arm are completely unreliable, and I have to do it like a real mom--in the poor baby's heinder. And the rash? The dr. said rashes are kind of hard to diagnose, but it looked like a heat rash to her, probably due to all the bundling we've done in the cold weather. She said there's nothing to do for it, and certainly don't stop bundling! The rash hung around for a little longer, but I don't think I noticed it today.

In other news, Caleb weighed in at 12 pounds! He'd just been weighed a couple weeks before, and he'd weighed 10.6, so he's quite the eater!

On Valentine's Day, Caleb was in the church nursery for the first time! We were at the church for a Valentine Banquet. I did pretty well. I really wanted to check on him after we'd eaten, but Jon convinced me that they would let us know if he needed anything. Later I got to go feed him, and it turns out he was doing just fine. He likes to play after he eats, and he inevitably eats at the beginning of Sunday School, so we'll probably start putting him in the nursery on Sundays.

And today Caleb managed to roll over after his nap! Once today I found him on his side (from his tummy), and once I found him on his back! His first hints of independence...can you imagine trying to babyproof OUR house? Oh, dear.... I'll need a whole flock of you organized people to come help me!
