There were three in the bed and the little one said...

ROLL OVER, ROLL OVER!!! Which is exactly what Caleb can now do. After graduating from grandma bootcamp which consisted of early-morning calisthenics with Grandma Costley, Caleb now knows how to weasel his way out of the dreaded Tummy Time (which he has always disliked, hence the out of control bald zone--I mean, bald spot on the back of his head).

So far he's limited to rolling from tummy to back in one direction, but with a bit more practice we're confident he will master all methods of Tummy Time escape.

Here is some footage of his amazing new trick:

Giving daddy some "knucks" to celebrate his victory:


Here is a close up of the aforementioned "bald zone." Despite the kind words of consolation from many well-intentioned individuals, I have been paying close attention to the back of babies' heads lately and what Caleb has going on is NOT a "normal" bald spot. PS-this picture was taken pre-hair cut and now I can see why my mom was so adamant about buzzing him. Thanks, mom:)


In case you're wondering, here's a small snip-it of grandma bootcamp: the perfect mix of strenuous exercise followed by luxurious massage (butt rubs are his favorite).

ADORABLE! Such a cute little bright-eyed boy . . . his bald spot just means he is turning his head to take everything in all the time -- very advanced!

dying right now. I love the face plants. But really, that bald spot/hairless cat patch is the greatest.

The last two posts are momentous. Nice work getting them done. I wish we could have been there.

Loved the video footage. It was so fun to have you here and to enjoy my children. Keep up the good work and get him to bend those legs.

So cute! Loving the first haircut. I'm notoriuos around these parts for shaving both of my kids' heads shiny bald! :) Yes, even Hadley. She doesn't seem to be traumatized by it. :) A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do!

It was really great to see you a couple weeks ago when you were here, even if it was only for a few minutes. Caleb is perfectly adorable - especially with that Cape Canaveral launch pad he's rockin' on the back of his head :)
