The Life of Calla--6 months old

Calla is SO FUN to play with now and so most nights we lay on the floor playing rather than updating the website! Ha!!
Calla had her 6 month check up last week, she is 14lbs and 13oz and 251/4 inches long. She has now tried sweet potatoes and loves them. Calla also had her first trip to the zoo! She did a great job of riding around in the stroller all day. She also got to visit Chuck E. Cheese again. She loves her jump-a-roo and the walker at daycare. She loves to cuddle up to Mommy or Daddy or almost anyone that holds her! She has so, so, so many clothes yet when you find something for $2.00 you can't pass it up...so after the shopping trip over the weekend (to Carter's store and also Cousin Burlynn's closet!) she has even more clothes!!
We also got to meet Baby Gavin this weekend!!! He is such a cutie and so tiny! You really do forget so quickly how small and fragile a newer baby is!
Enjoy the pics and please drop us a note to let us know you are keeping up with the life of Calla!

Calla says, "Hi!"

The girls at the zoo!

This is Calla right as she came up from underwater for the first time ever!! She looks a little startled, but she didn't cry!

Neighborhood Bats

Here is a video from our neighborhood....we believe that these are bats!!!! Last night there were more than 500 (we guess!) and they live in the chimney of the elementary school across from our house.

Update 12 Aug 2007

I guess I missed our weekly update last week!!
Our daycare provider was on vacation this week so Calla got to spend some time with her grandparents. On Monday and Tuesday Grandma Karma took off of work so that she could spend some time with her. Then Tuesday night we took Calla to meet Grandma Jules and she spent the rest of the week there. Chad and I really did not get anything accomplished, but rather spent some time together...we were totally lost without her here though and really do not look forward to that again soon!!
Friday night Calla and I stayed in Deshler so that we could see Shane and Cousin Burlynn. The girls had a lot of fun playing in the pool. Calla loved to just watch everything that Burlynn was up to! Things here continue to be great and Calla is growing up so quickly. It won't be too long and she will be up and crawling! We hope that you all have a wonderful week!
