Callum went to the doctor this week and he’s officially weighing in at 12 lbs and 2 oz. He’s grown 75%, weight-wise, and he’s now 23 inches long. This was also the big visit when he got his first immunizations. He was a brave boy and came home with two Tasmanian Devil band-aids on his chunky little thighs. The doctor commented that he’s very talkative. Indeed, he is. He likes to talk to us, and to his toys.
Right now his two favorite places to hang out are under the mobile in his crib, and in the Tiny Love gym, where he watches the lights move to the music. The gym has a “motion” setting, to where the music only starts when someone grabs a toy or otherwise moves the overarching bars. We set it up with a toy turtle hanging down, so that all he has to do to keep the music going is wiggle enough to jiggle the turtle. He is able to keep the music going himself all of the time. I’m not sure if he’s figured out the cause/effect relationship between his movement and the music, but he’s doing the right things, all the same.
