Snow baby!

Caleb is experiencing his first snow storm! The snow started late last night and lasted into early this morning. There is about 3" of snow and it's been sleeting for a few hours on top of that. It's making a royal mess and the governor even declared a "state of emergency."

We bundled up and ventured outside for a few minutes. Caleb was happy while being carried, but didn't like being on the ground! We might make it outside again once the sleet stops.

Visiting with Daddy's family

Glen's sister, Bekah and her husband, Hans came to visit us from Germany last month. They stayed for 2 weeks with his Mom. Caleb went with us to pick them up from the airport, we didn't get to watch any planes arrive though. =( In the Spring I plan on taking him to the observation deck at RDU.

ANYWAY... we also had a big family dinner while they were here. Here are some pictures from the night! The little baby is Kaylee, our newest niece. She is such a cutie, and I'm glad that there is a little girl in the family! Oh, and apparently I was on crazy that night and was making a random look in every picture. Tee-hee!

Wall Letters!

I finally finished Caleb's letters last month. Lauren helped me pick them out nearly 3 months ago and I took a hiatus on decorating them. They are really simple and add a great touch to his room. I am really happy with the way they came out! Each letter is painted baby blue to match his quilt, and some have an animal on them. C for Cow, L for Lamb and B for Bunny! Sorry for the low quality of the pictures, not sure why they are so fuzzy.

Ten Months Old

This year is flying by! I can't believe Caleb is almost 1! Here are his 10 month pictures! It's more & more challenging each month to get him to sit still! He constantly tries to crawl to see me, eat the camera or pull off his sticker; he's such a busy boy!

This month:
  • Caleb cut one new tooth on the top, for a total of 6 teeth.
  • He's really so close to walking! He takes a step between things, like the couch & the coffee table. He loves to push the walker and has figured out how to turn himself around once he runs into something.
  • Caleb loves to explore the house! He follows Mama and Daddy around everywhere! He loves to try to sneak off into our bedroom and pull down the baby monitor.
  • Caleb definitely understands NO and surprises me with how well he listens. He has moments where he will plop down on the floor and throw a fit when he doesn't get his way! It's funny to me now, I'm sure we'll get tired of tantrums soon enough. =)
  • Caleb sorta saw his first snow. There was technically snow last year when he was an outside baby, but he was too little to care! The snow he "saw" this year consisted of a few flakes one afternoon. I still put on his heavy coat & hat to run outside and take pictures!
  • We took a trip to visit Grandma Nancy, Grandpa Ken, Aunt Beth and family. Caleb had a great time playing with his cousins, feeding the goats and playing outside. He must have played outside with Grandma for over an hour. He loved it, he had a swing, climber and cozy coupe to enjoy. Caleb was able to use his feet to "drive" the cozy coupe backwards!
