happy American Thanksgiving. For lunch today Yvonne (I volunteered to help but she insisted on doing it herself) roasted a turkey with gravy and also prepared some stuffing, candied yams, and green bean casserole, plus there were toasted buttered buns and some sweet potato pie with whipped cream on top for dessert. She really went all out – all she had me do was look after Callum for a while and before eating, carve the turkey. It was an awesome meal – we are both totally full! Plus, as it was just the two of us celebrating Thanksgiving together this year, there are heaps of leftovers.
as of November 18th Callum has been crawling all over the place, which has sparked the rapid babyproofing of our house. Furthermore, today was the first day that he went from lying down on his stomach to a sitting up position all by himself. His crawling skills are getting better – he has figured out cross-crawling and can get from A to B pretty quickly. When I was taking the picture linked to above, Callum wanted very badly to get at the shiny camera (to stick it in his mouth, probably) and I could only get off three shots before he got to me.
it’s pretty cool to watch Callum growing up so rapidly – only two weeks ago he was a totally different baby.
