Happy Half Birthday Calvin!

Six months today! Oh my! Calvin weighed in at 15 pounds 12 ounces, he's officially twice his birth weight. He just keeps getting bigger. Calvin has also tried his first food this past week. Some banana and a "surf board" rice cracker. The banana gave him a "surprised" look when he tasted it...the rice cracker was a big hit. He likes to gnaw on that. I had read somewhere about the idea of waiting until a child was "ready" for food and then giving them whole foods rather than mush, I liked that concept, so we decided to give it a try. The point is that this is a time for them to explore food and that they are still getting their nourishment from breast milk or formula. It's been fun to watch him get to eat.

Mia has shown quite the interest in musical instruments since birth really, but more recently has started strumming imaginary guitars and playing imaginary's adorable. The amazing thing is she'll usually pick the correct instrument type for whatever music is playing. So, we got Mia a red ukulele, we call it a guitar...she loves it. Here's a picture of her with it.
