Looking good, homeboy!

Now that Calvin is just about 3 months old, his appearance has changed so much from when he was a newborn. Cal was born quite skinny, without much meat on his tiny bones (he weighed 6lbs, 15oz)... A little surprising, considering everyone thought he'd be big. But, he was just a smidgen bigger than I was at birth, and Brian was small too.

For a while, I called him chicken legs - they were so skinny - and my slender boy had no belly to speak of. But, it seems he's really catching up, because now he has the cutest chubby little thighs, and an adorable little Buddha belly that I can't resist kissing every time I see it.

As for his hair, he was born with a pretty decent amount, but these days there isn't too much of it left on his little noggin. And he has a bald stripe across the back of his head where it's rubbed off, like the Velveteen Rabbit. :). But it'll grow back eventually... When? I am not sure. If he's anything like his parents, though, soon he'll be sporting a nice, incredibly thick head of hair.

Calvin's eye color is still very much up in the air at this point. Most sources indicate that final eye color sometimes isn't established until 6-9 months, so he's still got a ways to go. In some light, they look brownish, in others they look blue. Often times, actually, they seem to be a dark teal, which is quite striking. In daylight, the truest light, at this point they look blue with a slight bit of brown around the pupils. Whatever color he ends up with will be gorgeous, I know.
