Note: While I hesitate to post this photo for fear that the possibility of a child getting his head stuck in the rails might give my mother a bad case of the ND, I just can't resist. Sorry, AG.
We call him: Calver, Calvino, Cal, Calvie, Little Dude, Pumpkin Nose
His latest tricks: picking his nose, shaking his head fervently when anyone asks him a question, going up and down the stairs with great finesse, lifting up the toilet seat and splashing around
We love his: irresistible toothy grins, sweet sweet hugs, goodbye waves, open-mouthed kisses
He likes to eat: crackers, rice cereal, fruits, pasta, olives, beans, whatever we are eating
He promptly deposits on the floor: Cheerios
He is getting better at: letting people hold him, not crying for the babysitter
The cake that we made for his family birthday gathering which ultimately had to be canceled due to vomitous children in the house was: maybe the best cake I've ever made, really delicious and we're sorry we couldn't have you here to share it
Thanks for joining our family, sweet baby. We love you!
