Monday, July 4, 2011

Caleb has learned a new trick since last week. Now he can pull himself to a standing position on his own. The other night, we laid him down for bed and he was crying in his crib. When I went back to check on him, he was standing up. He has done it several times since. He has even pulled himself up using my pants.

He has also started to do a little more crawling on his hands and knees. He starts with the knees, but if he is planning on going very far, he drops to his belly and scoots away. He is getting pretty fast and no distance is too far now.

We have really been pushing Caleb to eat. He still gets about 24 ounces of milk per day and lots of solid foods. We give him finger foods several times a day and then offer baby food, applesauce or yogurt. It looks like our efforts are paying off. I weighed him yesterday morning and he was 15 pounds, 8 ounces. Now if we can keep making this kind of progress to store up some weight before he begins walking.

This week is pretty slow, but next week, Caleb has his occupational therapy appointment on Tuesday and a cardiologist appointment on Wednesday. Hopefully, we get a good report on his heart and everyone is happy with the progress he is making.
