22 weeks (that's 5 months!!)

This week was crazy crazy and Aaron gets the "Good Sport/Patient and Helpful Hubby" award for all that he did to make my life easier. From taking and picking up Caleb from the babysitter several times to going with Caleb to the doctor (nothing big - just an allergic rash and snotty nose), from flying solo on the bed/bath routine Wednesday and Thursday to spending 30 minutes cleaning the dog hair off the couches on Saturday morning, what a hero he was this week! Unfortunately, this week doesn't look any less insane but we'll make it work :)

So, as you can see, Caleb and Aaron had some quality time together this week. And you just never know what will happen when you leave Dad and Son by themselves. Wednesday was Caleb's 5 month birthday (can you believe it!) so Aaron was in charge of taking a picture for the month-by-month frame we have. Evidently Aaron wanted to go with a theme photo. Here's what we ended up with:

We have mastered the cereal thing and have tried to start doing it more than once a day. Good news is that Caleb is not picky so he doesn't care about the temperature or whether it's mixed with water or milk. Sometimes he gets a little antsy if you put him in the highchair then make him wait too long for the cereal but once he gets settled in there, he really likes it. In fact, he has fallen asleep in the highchair several times this week, usually after hanging out for awhile and getting bored. However, there was one instance where he could hardly keep his eyes open between bites. Aaron got it on video and it is pretty darn funny.

On Friday, Caleb's second bottom tooth came in and over the weekend they both really pushed up out of the gums. Enough that I have been on the receiving end of a not-so-gentle bite while he was eating, if you catch my drift. HOLY COW! I seriously got tears in my eyes it hurt so badly. You can tell it is a new sensation for Caleb too because he spends a lot of time running his tongue over the area and making this weird whistling noise because of the drool that he's inhaling and exhaling along with it. Here's the latest pic of his teeth (I promise we'll stop torturing him to get these photos soon).

OK, much to do before heading to bed and it would be nice to start the week with a good night's sleep. Have a great week!
