Smartest Baby in the whole world!

Okay, so most of you know of our genius baby. We have actual footage of Caleb feeding himself. He was 10 or 11 days old at this time. Now he didn't make the bottle or anything, but the fact that he held it all by himself at this age is absolutely amazing in my eyes. But then, almost anything he does is amazing to me. He is also a WONDERFUL burper. Like basically, most of the time, all you have to do to burp this kid is sit him up and he will burp loud and clear for you. I love it. I seem to recall someone once said that if you had the choice between a genius baby or a baby that burped good, most people would say a baby that was a genius, but what you really want is a good burper. Then they don't cry forever. Good advice. I love my family. I never thought that being a mom would be this much fun, pain, and stress all at the same time.
Caleb is getting better though. His yellow is gone, so no more jaundice and he is eating about 2 ounces at every feeding. Which is good, that means he will be putting on more weight. His eye is getting better, he had or has a blocked tear duct and the doc gave us some medicine for that. That is really helping. Steve loves being a daddy. You can see it in his face when he is feeding Caleb. Maybe not when he is changing the poopy diapers, but it's all good. He is such a HUGE HELP. Man, I could not imagine doing all of this on my own. I would go insane. Certifiably insane. Rexburg is freezing. It is too cold to snow. Below freezing all the time. Nights are sometimes below 0. I do NOT want to take Caleb out in the cold. But, times call for it sometimes. I will avoid it if I can.
