Week 10

Well, it's week 10 and, beside the fact that he likes to take a pretty long nap around 4:00 every day, we are still not really on a schedule. All the books say that a schedule will start to "appear" between weeks 6 and 12. Still waiting :) Hopefully being at the babysitters with her schedule will help things.

We enjoyed a relaxed Thursday and Friday. Samson had minor surgery on Friday to remove a 'skin tag' (kinda like a mole). Since he was under anesthesia anyway, we went ahead and had them clean his teeth and cut his nails. He's like a new dog now but on Friday, he was still pretty drugged up when he came home. Here's a funny picture of his glassy eyes and his stitches. I think he really likes not wearing his collar.

Over the weekend, Caleb received a Valentine card from Grandma and Grandpa Long with his first $5 bill in it. Aaron told Caleb to put it in his piggy bank and save it for his first pack of baseball cards. So that's what we did. (Notice the adorable Chiefs pacifier!)

I've gone through some of Caleb's closet in the last week and found several items that I had forgotten about. One was this great super-soft blanket with a little lamb head on it. My friend Mandy brought it to us this summer when she came to visit, before I was even out of my first trimester. When I put it in his car seat with him, he immediately snuggled up with it so now it goes wherever he does. We call it "Lamby" and he loves it. In this picture, he was cuddling with it in his swing.

The big event of the weekend was that today was his first trip to the nursery at church. Asbury is big enough that they have a pretty in-depth system with security cards and scanners so we were a bit clueless. Caleb had fallen asleep in the car but as soon as we went to get him out of the carrier and hand him over the the teacher, he woke up. Usually, he would go back to sleep but, when we came to pick him up, they said he had not slept at all while he was there. He did have a sticker on him that read, "Changed with love and care" so he was evidently busy doing a big job while we were in Sunday School. We asked how he did and they said, "fine" but I don't think the church nursery will tell you if your child insisted on being held the whole time (my guess is that's what happened). Oh well. It's the first of many many Sundays there so he'll get used to it and so will we. It was very nice to be able to sit through the whole class today instead of Aaron and me tag-teaming with Caleb out in the hallway.

A couple of weeks ago I posted that Caleb was in his 3-6 month clothes. What I didn't realize was that most of Carter's (and several other brands) clothes that have Size 6 Months on the tag are the measurements for 3-6 months in other brands. So there have been lots of clothes that are perfect for right now, pjs especially, just hanging in his closet. So we are phasing out some of the too small clothes and it is sad. I keep trying to squeeze him into his "I Love Mommy" onesie from Gap but it's time to put it in storage now. Here's a picture of one of my favorite pj outfits. You can see that his little legs can't really even stretch out anymore so it's going in the storage bin too. It is cute though, huh?

Well, I need to go and prepare for another 1/2 week at work. I think I am going to create a checklist and tape it to the back door to make sure I don't forget anything. Have a great week everyone!!
