2010 and then some!

The sun is shining and the snow is melting in our little MT community. It's been a busy winter with all that Caelan has been doing and learning. At 4 1/2 months old, we've recently had to say good riddens to Caelan's least favorite activity: tummy time. Now when we place him on his belly to encourage neck and core strength, he consistently rolls over to his back while simultaneously looking at mom and dad with a smirk as if to say "ha ha, you can't make me!"

Our little guy spends his days playing with mom, dad, Nanny Chris, Papa Rich, as well as his numerous aunties, uncles, cousins, and pseudo-aunts and uncles. He's had many out-of-town visitors too including Grammy Renee and Grandpa and Grandma OC. Caelan is one lucky little man and I think his smile will keep everyone coming back for more!

Caelan's most recent favorite game is to push off with his legs as he "bounces" into the air! He still loves to show off his "standing" skills, especially when there's an audience! He's also mastering the art of flirting!

Caelan started rice cereal a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes he likes it and wants to help us feed him. Other times he hates it. And trust me, you'd know by his reaction when he wants nothing to do with the cereal. At those times we can't get him out of his chair fast enough!!!

A little too small for his highchair!

Enjoying a little cereal.

Happy Holidays to all!

Greetings family and friends. It's been a wonderful season of firsts for our family. Caelan is growing like a weed. In the short 10 weeks he's been with us he's gained almost 4 1/2 pounds and grown 2 inches! He's expressing himself with new sounds every day. His coos and ahhs are sweetness to the ears! Caelan is a very happy baby and loves listening to his mommy and daddy singing him silly songs every chance they get. He's becoming more aware of his surroundings and more familiar with family and friends. Caelan has been a true joy and the greatest gift in our lives. We're enjoying every minute and look forward to watching him grow and learn.

Hope you all had a merry Christmas!!!!

Caelan's first hike

We celebrated Caelan's 2 week birthday with his first hike! Mama OC carried the snoozer up the M while a proud Daddy OC took pictures! And Ninita joined in on the fun too.........receiving more compliments than our handsome newborn.
A 2 week birthday celebration wouldn't be complete without gifts. Caelan posed for his very first ski pass to Bridger Bowl! He'll be ripping freshies soon!

She can change diapers too!
