Bears Bears

Caleb is enjoying a new CD by Andrew Peterson called Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies. Actually the CD was a gift I gave Rachel for her birthday (she asked for it at some point in the past).

The songs are glue for the brain...impossible to remove from your mind throughout the day. Like "You better eat them beans, boy" and "Tractor, Tractor, harvesting the wheat."

Caleb dances to a lot of the songs, but there is one that he sings along too (which is amazing since he has a vocabulary of about 20 words or so). The song is Bears.

He sings:
Bears, bears, they got no cares
Bears don’t drink from a cup
Sharp teeth and claws and furry paws
To catch you and eat you up
No, grizzly bears don’t wear underwear
Socks, or jammies, or gloves
No baby bears, don’t wear diapers
No Pampers, no Huggies, no Luvs

Of course we recommend the CD. But at the top of our recommendation list right now...

That's right, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. At your local Starbucks beginning tomorrow (Sept 1). I have waited months for this flavor that tickles my taste buds like no other taste on earth. So if you're wondering where I will be tomorrow morning...IN LINE AT STARBUCKS!

29 and holding

August 24, 1980 a precious and beautiful baby was brought into this world...ME!

Monday I celebrated my 29th birthday. The day began with Caleb bringing me a card and a gift card to Target (how thoughtful Caleb). Followed by a low-key, no plans day. These days are few and far between, so it was the perfect birthday gift.

That evening we went to Zorba's (yummy Greek food) for dinner.

It was a blast! Thanks Wes, Kristin and everyone else for making it such a special evening!

I have decided that I will stay at 29! So no more birthdays for me!

I'm a big kid now

Caleb is growing up so fast. He is 14 months and into EVERYTHING. He has been walking for most of the summer, but he really seems to have it down now. Which means his new venture is CLIMBING! Up the stairs, onto the couch, on top of his slide. He keeps me busy!

One of the new things he just started doing is giving "real kisses". He even makes the sound "mmmm-wah" when he does it. Melts my heart!

He is still a pretty small kid. He probably weighs around 20 lbs and most of his clothes are still size 9 months. He is getting taller and thinner and more hair. He is becoming a toddler for sure.

He has almost gotten all 4 of his molars which gives him a mouth full of 12 teeth! This is a great thing because it really expands his menu options. His current favorites are bananas, blueberries, cheese and of course french fries!

We can't wait for him to have a little brother to play with. I can only imagine how crazy our house is going to be Christmas of 2010. I will have two wild boys, a 1 year old and a 2 1/2 year old. Fun!

Speaking of baby boy #2. Things are going well. I am 21 weeks which means this baby could be here in less than 19 weeks--wow!

Caleb is keeping all of his nursey decor, so I picked out a fun new pattern for little brother.

I wish I had some updated pictures of Caleb, but my battteries in my camera are dead-- I know terrible excuse. I will post some soon.
