I am so exhausted. I had to work today which was a total beating! We were so busy. I can honestly say that I only sat down to have lunch and put orders in. It was non-stop most of the day. I think I pulled something in my back.

OK OK... enough feeling sorry for my self. I don't know if I have told you this before but I love love love Caleb. At this age he is just so stinking fun (and at times very difficult).

That being said, I had to put Caleb to bed hungry last night. :( I think it bothered me more than it did him. I wish I knew how to upload home movies to my computer. I would Post this great video that we caught of Caleb last night.

It all started when I turned of Toy Story so we could sit down and have dinner. He wanted nothing to do with that. He started screaming "mov, mov.....Buzz" he screamed that over and over. We explained that he could watch the movie once he finished dinner. But he continued to cry and throw a huge fit, this went on for about 25 minutes with no hope of him stopping.

So with that Matt and I bathed him and put him to bed, without dinner. :( I felt AWFUL. But, I know this is probably not the last time this is going to happen. Matt and I have a very long road of "parenthood" ahead of us.

Toy Story = Major Obession

So for about the past 2-3 weeks Caleb has wanted to only watch Toy Story or Toy Story 2. I am serious, he will not watch ANYTHING else. I am pretty sure Matt and I can repeat both movies word for word. It is really sad and I want to pull my hair out.

Since I am not in school and I only work 2 days a week Caleb and I have been spending alot of time together, which might I add I LOVE LOVE LOVE. But there is only so much we can do on a budget and when it is like 150 degrees outside. So I guess it is kind of my fault but still.

I can remember when Trey(lil bro) went through a phase where he watched the same movies over and over, but I swear he was way older then Caleb.

So here is a little preview about what I am talking about. :)


Caleb loves loves loves lawn mowers! Evertime we go in to the garage to leave he has to go over to the lawn mower and touch it. He then says "mow mow, I pull" He then procedes to touch the pull string to start the mower.

He imitates Matt when he mows. He fusses and fusses until we let him go out with Matt while he mows the lawn.

Matt jokes, he say "I bet in 12 years he will not want to mow, but rather we will have to make him."

First big boy party

A few weeks ago Caleb went to his first big boy birthday party. It was for Marcos, the son, of a couple in our Sunday school class.

We went to Little Gym. Caleb had a blast! He was climbing over all he blocks, holding our hand and walking across a balance beam, and flipping over a bar.

It was so fun to watch Matt and Caleb. Caleb would hang on to the bar, then Matt would sling his body over. Caleb would just laugh and giggle. It was a very enjoyable experience.

After the time was over in the gym, it was time for pizza, presents, and cake.

Even though Caleb was the littlest one there he had a blast. I still can't believe he will be two in two months. Time is flying by.

Mom's little helper

So Caleb has really been into helping. He wants to help us load the dishwasher, unload the dishwasher, fold clothes, feed the dog, but I think his favorite thing to help mom with is cooking.

He pushes a chair up to the counter, climbs up and say "help, please".
He loves to help pour and stir. We make muffins, jello, and the picture to the right is an oven bake dinner.

It is so cute to watch him, he is growing up way to fast. I am trying to soak up every moment that I spend with him. I just want to stop time because he is so fun at this age.
