This is how Cre8tive Group-ies spend their time.

Dan Sutton (right) and Steve "Thor" Thorson created a secret handshake with each other, adding one "move" for each day of the three months Dan spent working at the Cre8tive Group

Caspian rolled over today! Well, halfway, anyway. He was laying on the bed on his tummy and leaned so he was over on one shoulder. I got behind him and called to him until he flipped over to see me. Boy, was he surprised to see the ceiling! I set him back up on his tummy, and he did it again! I got the camera and tried to get him to do it again, but by then he was ready to get up, of course.

He also did something neat on the changing table. Normally, I take his arms and legs out of his PJs and give him my fingers so he'll sit up, then I pull the PJs out and lay him back down. Well today, little mister man pulled up alright, but he squatted on his feet instead of sitting on his bottom! The little show-off.

We bought this shirt because it has rockets and spaceships on it (Charlie is a Trekkie). Charlie was choked up when he came home and found Caspian actually fitting into it!

Caspian fell asleep on Charlie while watching a little family TV. I love the way he's gripping Charlie's watch.

I can't believe he's still asleep! Caspian ate at noon, then fell asleep in the swing around 1. He's twitched a few times, but never fully woken up! Poor thing -- his right eye is gooped shut. [l] ETA - Looks like another 3.5 hour nap!

I read a Baby Einstein book to Caspian while we waited for Charlie in Wal-Mart last night, and Caspian was just captivated! Every page had a mirror on it, but he stared the most at the page with the sun on it -- he was riveted. When the picture of the monkey came up, he broke into the biggest giggle grin! It was awesome.

He took TWO 3.5-hour naps yesterday AND slept through the night! Maybe he's having a growth spurt. I was shocked that he just kept on sleeping.

When I left for tutoring on Monday, I had to drop Charlie off at work on my way. My mom had Caspian in our living room, and we kissed him goodbye and opened the door...and Caspian lost it! His face crumpled and he started sobbing and wailing! We never in a million years thought he'd understand this early (or care) that we were leaving. I realized also that Charlie and I have never both left him together before.
When we came back, I came through the door and held my arms out to him. He broke into a smile, spread his arms out, and lifted his whole upper body away from my mom -- as if to say, "Take me, mommy!"

He's also started playing a game where he'll fuss to eat, but when I lay him in front of me to nurse, he'll rotate his entire upper body away from me, throw out his arm, and stare with intent interest at the ceiling. I'll tease his mouth a little with my bbs to get him to turn back and suck, but he only does it for one or two sucks before he flings himself over again. He knows he's playing, too, because the little stinker grins at me when he pulls away.

We went shopping today for supplies for my Mary Kay gift baskets for the holidays (I do free gift wrapping and shipping for all my customers). I love "presentation" and all that, so this part is really fun for me! I scored a bunch of top-notch baskets at Goodwill, too.

Caspian is now going 8 hours between his night feedings (and waking up dry)! Hooray for sleep!!!

Charlie and I dress up in medieval garb every year, so Caspian was the dragon who terrorizes our village. He fell asleep on Daddy halfway down Main Street, but woke up at Grandma's. My mom was all over his cute little dragon self!
