Thank you! I will keep doing what I am doing. Calvin is moving along and I will not be too concerned about his size and abilities. I really wasn't much but don't want to be blind. His doctor is fine not starting solids even up until he is a year old. However, I'll probably start before that. Also, Calvin is well proportioned. He seems just right to me. And yes, as you can tell, Nolan and Evan are not really large kids and neither are their parents.
Calvin is moving and happy so I don't think I need to worry that he is not eating enough. Also, as far as motor skills, he is making small gains, such as starting to turn a bit more when he's on his stomach. So, that's that. I won't worry unless I have to. Even then, worry is really a waste of energy. Just like I've said before.
On a more positive note: Joe plowed off the garden tonight. He has been so motivated after having a good pumpkin year AND going to Niagara Falls this past weekend. He went for a giant pumpkin convention or something like that ;)
He told Evan that since he has the week off, Evan needed to get the snow off the garden. Ev thought his dad was very serious. So, Evan problem solved with 2 options: A) get Grandpa Wayne's snow blower or B) "We could manure spreader with our arms and get snow on Mom!" They had a good laugh over that. At my expense of course. I am so ganged up on being the only girl in this house.
We went for a walk the other day. That is when I got a pic of the eagle. Joe thought it was something I found online. Nope.
But lucky for us, that is where the calves go when they are no longer with their mommas. However, I think the calves are getting quite big:
The boys enjoyed finding catepillers on the road.Nolan wanted to kiss them! I think he actually did kiss a couple. Hopefully they didn't catch his cold!
Of course the days are incomplete if the boys do not play in the water. Evan was telling me that he likes to put the 'guys' on the shore of "Lake Superior". He likes to jump in the Superior as well.
