New Developments

Baby is getting too big for his bath!

Sweet boy!
Puppy robe!
Caedmon in a kimono!
Thumb sucking and favorite elephant
Caedmon "reads" his book
Little builder
Pretend drink from daddy
Getting stronger! (And chubbier)

Caedmon is growing like a weed! I can't believe its been nearly four months since he was born!
The last two or three weeks he has changed so much. About a week and a half ago, we realized he has half a tooth sticking out! Poor baby, we didn't realize that's why he was so fussy....we just were not expecting a tooth in his little mouth. It's a strange tooth too. Instead of an incisor, his first tooth is one of hte first molars. Weirdddd. There seem to be some waiting in the wings, but who knows if this was a fluke tooth or if he is on the road to teeth? Silly baby.

He is also starting to "talk" like crazy. He makes purposeful and loud sounds, and is so delighted when you talk back to him. The past three days all day long its "AAAAOohhhh. AAAAH! Ohhhh. Woaaoowww"! He is laughing more and more now too, especially cracking up when daddy tickles him or blows on his belly.

Also, he is exploring objects now with his mouth. Anything he can get his hands on....straight to the mouth. Objects promptly become drenched in drool (Poor thing even has a little rash or sore under his bottom lip from all the drool plus pacifier).

Finally, he is nearing rolling over. Usually he gets himself on to his side and then becomes distracted by his delicious fingers.

Paul and I are quite smitten with him and are enjoying all his new, fun stages.
Hope you enjoy all the pictures! I just couldn't help myself.

Laura and I are enjoying the latest set of pictures. She says, "Naid-non!" for his name. She would really like to spend more time with him.

The molar really explains a lot. Laura got her teeth early, too, and it made sense with all the crying, crying, and more crying.

Laura wants to write Caedmon something. Here goes:

;3ee;e;e;e;;e;e; mmccmaaa,mccee;;;

She loves her cousin. Come home soon!
Audrey, Laura and Ayrton

What a big boy. He lookd so aware and involved in what he is doing and boy does he like the camera. I love his big brown eyes and his beautiful smile. He is all boy. I sure love to hear him talking. I saved his voice message on my cell phone and listen to it every day. Can't wait to see you all again. Love you.

Oooohh, he's so cute and chubby. I just want to tickle him and cuddle him. Can you bring him by for a visit? I'm really sad I haven't seen him yet. It's only 11,000 miles!

In case you think that we have so many cousins your little guy gets lost in the shuffle, please know this is about my 4th time looking at these newest pictures of Caedmon. I love my nephew and want to keep up with just who he is and what a neat family he has.
