We lasted almost 4 months, which I think is pretty impressive considering that Billy and I basically work in little germ incubators. It started as a dry cough Saturday night, got wetter on Sunday and Monday. I took Tuesday off work to take him to the doctor just to make sure it was only a cold and nothing worse. Everything looked fine, but he definitely had a cold. The problem with a baby cold is that they can't blow their nose. We went back to the doctor the following Monday for his 4 month check up and he was worse - a lot of weezing, a stuffed up nose that wouldn't run and just generally miserable. Because his oxygen saturation was down, we ended up skipping his shots and coming home with a nebulizer for breathing treatments.
During a 2:00 am diaper change, Cal suddenly found his feet. He loves to grab them while on the changing table. Strangely, he is only interested in them when they are bare. I think he needs the toes to get a good grip!

According to Daddy, he has also found his "junk". I cannot confirm this, as I do not encourage him to get his hands anywhere near his diaper during changes.
On March 13, in the church we got married in, Billy and Callahan were baptised. I was one proud wife and momma. Both of my boys did so well. I think Cal liked being the center of attention, even if he was not a big fan of his dress...erm, gown.
With the Godparents
This is the same gown my sister and I wore, along with my cousins Karin and Jon, and Karin's son Dylan. My Grandma Speck made it. There is a picture of my in the same gown, laying on the same blanket. I'll have to find it and scan it.
Cal is a quarter of a year old! He is smiling up a storm and loves to babble. He has found his hands and is working on grabbing things. He will sit up in his Bumbo or Boppy, but he loves to lay on his back and wiggle. He's not rolling yet, but it looks like he will soon. He has become attached to his beautiful blanky from Barbara...so much so that I have already ordered a spare!
We didn't do an official height check at the doctor, but we did do a quick weigh in. Cal Pal is just under 15 pounds.
