Just call us the Nielsons.

As of yesterday we are now a Homescan Consumer Panel member home, which is a fancy way of saying that we are now an A.C. Nielson family.  We aren't reporting our TV preferences, though, we are reporting our household purchase information.  The job came with its own fancy gadget - a scanner, which we use to scan and record all of our purchases when we bring them home, and then to connect to Homescan division of A.C. Nielson and upload our purchase information.  It doesn't take very long to do, and each time we share information with them we get points, which we can eventually redeem for gifts.  So, our opinions matter.  Or if they don't, we are going to make them. 

And, since this blog really isn't about us anymore,  we'll now move on to news about Calvin.  First and foremost, he is feeling much better.  Although he is still waking once a night, a habit he developed during the reflux issues of the past few weeks, in general he is sleeping well and is having no trouble eating.  He has also discovered his tongue.  He can roll it and twist it, chew on it and use it to spit raspberries.  It's very cute, but very messy.  He has also learned how to pull himself up to a standing position when sitting in front of something (which means that we have to be careful where we put him).  He has not really crawled since the couple of times a week or so ago when he traveled about four or five feet, face planted firmly on the ground.  Evidently he has wizened up and will wait until he can get his face off the ground before trying that again!  And we stopped trying to feed him cereal after we switched him back to the liquid Zantac, but will likely pick it up again some time in the next week or so.  And that, is the Calvin news.
