Poop pondering....

This morning Caden stopped eating about halfway through his bottle so I sat him up to get him to burp. (The kid burps like a sailor!) And after he burped I started in on my usual "Yea! That was a good burp! Good job buddy!!" ...and I realized that I was actually excited about my kid loudly expelling gas from his mouth.

...excited...actually excited

Just when did I start to get excited about burps, toots and poops? I started thinking about it all and realized that I carefully scrutinize poopy diapers, check the color of snot and judge burps on a scale of "not-so-good-needs-to-burp-again" to "ohhhh-good-one-we're-done-here". Isn't it interesting how your whole outlook changes? Life will never be the same.

He's just too big...

I didn't realize that it had been so long since I had posted anything! Working full-time and then trying to squeeze the rest of my life into the 5 hours after work that I am conscious isn't as easy as I thought it would be. But these are the things going on in our lives at the moment:

Caden is working on holding his head up and steady. Sometimes he looks like he is doing an impression of Stevie Wonder! Anyway, we broke out the Megasaucer to help in his attempt to hold up his head. He likes it for about 5 then his head has slowly sunk down to rest on the tray!

Also, big news on the baby front...Caden has decided to try his hand at rolling over. This is how he looks when I go to get him in the mornings...I spanked him...maybe he will stop trying now!
This is how Caden feels about the cold weather...he doesn't like hoodies!
