First and Last Times

Caleb finally slept through the entire night for the FIRST time! He actually slept from about 9 to 6:45 this morning! Yeah Caleb and yeah sleep! Also, today is Brian's LAST overnight call as a resident--we can't tell you how excited we are about that!!!

Georgia Aquarium

Brian and I decided that we needed a little getaway for a night with the kids since Brian has been so busy with work and since we haven't had a vacation in awhile. So we decided to head to Atlanta on Sunday, April 26, and stayed at the Embassy Suites downtown. That night we ate at Copeland's Cheesecake Factory, and on Monday, we headed to the Georgia Aquarium. I can't tell you how excited Abby Grace was about going to the aquarium! Once she found out about it, she couldn't stop asking about when we were going to get there. This was actually her second visit because we took her when she was 1 year old. Anyway, she and Caleb both had a wonderful time, as you can see from the pictures. If you know us well, you know that we are always going nonstop, so of course, we headed to Lenox to do a little shopping after the aquarium and to meet up with our past Sunday school teacher, Karen Bowers, who we miss greatly (she and her husband moved to Buckhead for a new job opportunity). Then, Brian just couldn't resist the Braves game that night, so we headed there as well. He actually found club level tickets on for really cheap, so that made it even more fun, and the kids really liked it. See pictures above. Then after the game was over, we made a late night drive back to Birmingham. It was definitely all well worth it!

Caleb's Growing!

I've been a little behind on my blogging these days, so I am going to try to catch up! Here are some pictures of Caleb from April 18--he was about 5 1/2 months then! Since that time, Caleb has started solid foods! We began with the veggies, like squash and carrots, which I think are still his current favorites. Then, we added in the fruits, which of course, he loves! So now, he really doesn't like his cereal that much! He also now has 2 teeth! The first one came in and then soon after, the second one came in at about the same time he turned 6 months. He's still rolling all over the place, but he hasn't learned to sit alone yet. However, he does love to sit in a high chair, his exersaucer, and his jumpy thing. Is he still sleeping through the night yet? Not quite, but he's working on it! We had a few setbacks this past week with a cold/cough, 6 months shots, and the teeth coming in. Speaking of, Caleb had his 6 months check up last week, and he weighed 18 lbs 7 oz and was 27 inches long, which puts him in the 75th percentile on height and weight. So, needless to say, he's growing up on us!
