Cael has had some "milestones" this last week. On Tuesday, October 18, Cael discovered he has a tongue. He started playing with it in his mouth, flipping it around and sticking it out. The faces he makes when he plays with his tongue are so cute! Then on Sunday, October 23rd, Cael figured out that he has a fist and thumb to suck on! So far, he's only gagged himself once by putting his thumb too far down his throat. But the sucking noises he makes are so stinking cute!
This past weekend, we took Cael pumpkin picking for the first time. I walked around with him in the carrier. It was a little windy and chilly, but Cael was nice and bundled up. We had a lot of fun, going with mom and all my siblings. It was a nice family outing. And then yesterday, we carved pumpkins. I carved out "Cael's 1st Halloween", and I have to admit, it came out pretty darn awesome! It's been a really nice week down on Long Island with my family, but I'm really missing Matt by now. Cael and I will be heading back home on Thursday, and I can't wait to get a big hug from Matt.
