The sky is falling!

So last night Jenni and I were driving home and we noticed that there was a funky blue streak in the east part of the sky. We snapped some pics with our cell phones and since we were driving near our house, I stopped by and grabbed the camera. It was a pretty unique looking occurrence, but after doing some searching on the internet, I discovered that it's actually an anti-crepuscular ray (Wikipedia). So I guess it turns out that the sky wasn't falling and it's actually a normal/natural phenomeum, but it was still really cool to see and I'm glad that I was able to snap a picture.

Our own Dr Seuss character

I don't know if it's the outfit, the look on his face, or the way he's standing, but I just think that Charlie looks like he should be in a Dr Seuss book in this picture.

But anyway, Charlie hits the 4 month mark on Saturday and he's still growing like nobody's business. We'll get the official numbers at his doctor's visit on Monday, but I'd be willing to bet that he's well over the 50th percentile that he was at for his 2 month visit. But for anyone interested you can see the most recent set of pictures on Facebook or the PWA.

Also, here's the latest set of videos that we've snapped of the little guy.

Charlie's starting to learn how to laugh and it's usually pretty funny to see how excited he gets (Facebook):

He's also gotten a LOT better at the Jumperoo compared to tiny little movements that we were so impressed with before (Facebook):

And here's a video of him playing in the "hanging jumper thing" with his cousins, Carter and Wyatt (Facebook):
