We hope all you Calla followers are doing well out there. We are getting ready to travel to sunny Tucson, AZ this week to spend Christmas with the Shaff side of the family. It takes a lot more planning and packing these days. Gone are the days of just packing the night before a trip. Calla is really looking forward to meeting her Uncle John, Aunt Charlotte, and Great Aunt Sharon for the first time. She will also get to see Grandma Lynda, Grandpa Bob, and Uncle Steve.

Calla had her last eyes test this week and passed with flying colors. So it does not seem that she will have any problems with her eyes, which is a common problem with premature babies. Calla also had a developmental test done this week and is right on track for her corrected age (5.5 months). She loves playing peek-a-boo, is rolling over more, and is developing quite the personality. She loves trading back and forth making fart sounds with her tongue and loves to laugh and "talk". She has become a little ticklish now and even anticipates the tickles or belly blows coming and starters laughing before they come. So Happy Holidays to all and here are some more photos of Calla for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Thanksgiving

Scott, Calla, and I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and that you each took a moment to count your blessings, I know we did. We have so much to be thankful for this year, our family, friends, each other, and of course the best blessing of them all is a happy and healthy Calla. We spent the day with our Crystal Circle Friends in Portland at Rebecca's parents house. They were kind enough to invite us all up there along with Jeff's mom Carolyn and sister Julie. We had a wonderful day full of food and friends.

The Crystal Circle gang. Jeff, Calder, Rebecca, Courtney, Scott, Joy, Jay, and Calla! (Jay looks like a natural, we promised not to send this picture to his mom!)

Calla all dressed up for her first Thanksgiving, notice how clean she still is, this WILL change.

Mom and Calla posing for a picture before the sweet potatoes get all over the dress.

Joy and Calla. There were lots and lots of hands to hold Calla on Thanksgiving so mom and dad enjoyed lots of free time. Now that is something to be thankful for!!

Calla and Aspen

Calla is growing up fast and becoming more and more aware of what is going on around her. She now loves to watch Aspen and usually ends up laughing at her doggie. Enjoy this video of her laughing at Aspen.

Photo Shoot

Scott is out of town this weekend so Calla, Aspen, and I took a few photos this afternoon. Calla has become really intersted in Aspen lately, and usually laughs from her belly when Aspen is around.

Aspen and Calla just hanging out.

Look how much Calla's face has filled out, the photo on the top was taken in November and the photo on the bottom was take when she was 11 days old. The pacifier took up most her her face and now it looks small on her chubby face.

Look how much Calla has changed. The photo on the top was taken in June and the photo on the bottom was taken in November. She is growing up so fast!!
