Caleb went potty for the first time last night - twice!

For a couple months now, he has been really excited to sit on the toilet and try to stand in front of the toilet, but nothing much ever came of it.

Last night I was working in the bathroom/laundry room and he said "I have to pee Mommy" so I helped him on the toilet. And sure enough - he went!!! Then Jon encouraged him to try before his bath. He didn't go the first time, got into the bathtub, and said "I go pee Daddy!", so onto the toilet again and with a little encouragement he went again!

YEY!! We're so proud of our little boy!! Although it is hard to realize that this is a big step into Being a little boy... he is no longer our little baby, that is for sure.

Happy Halloween!!!
This year I was a "Puppy-Doggy"!
Getting ready for the Trick-or-treater's

Pre-Trick-or-treat Candy... gearing up...

Trick-or-treat!!! and Thank you!!!

Ya-Ya stopped by at the end of the night!
We tried to get a picture together... 
But we're not very good at sitting still.

Pictures with Mommy and Daddy - I'm quite hyper right now with all the sugar surging through my veins!

My First Pumpkin!

 We all carved our first family pumpkin this year.
The pumpkin had been grown in our own backyard.
 We drew two faces on the pumpkin since it was a double pumpkin. 

Caleb loved using his little saw - it took lots of concentration.

Cleaning out the goop!

The finished product! Sides A & B 

Caleb LOVED looking into the pumpkin and seeing the candles.

Caleb was one proud boy! 


Happy Halloween!!!

2nd Birthday Party!

 Happy 2nd Birthday Caleb!!! (A little early)

We celebrated Caleb's second birthday with friends, family, and Thomas the Train Engine!
Here are some pics from this awesome day!

Showing off his new Thomas hat 
Standing by his great presents! After every toy he wanted to play with it, he didn't quite understand the idea of opening all the presents before playing. He was quite giddy after many of his presents.

"Thank you Uncle Ethan!"

Opening Aunt Rachael's present

Caleb is TWO years old!!! Represented by two fingers of course!

Caleb was absolutely thrilled that everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to him.
He clapped and squealed at the end of the song.
   Time to blow out the candles...                                       
And eat cake and ice cream!

Big Boy Bed!!!

Caleb's New Big Boy Bed!!!

Testing out my new bed (it was in the living room until Mom could get it upstairs).

"I go night-night"... this is so much fun!
Reeeeeach for that book! I've been doing the same thing in my room.

Caleb absolutely loves his new Big Boy Bed, but it hasn't been so easy for Mom and Dad! He's very anxious to jump in (and on) the bed, so all of the routine he has had for a long time has gone completely out of the window. Hopefully we get one soon!!! He is sleeping in his bed, and is excited to be able to get out by himself in the morning, the problem is getting him to fall asleep without a big to-do!

Pumpkins and Wagons

 Going to help Mommy in the back garden...
 Just me and my little red wagon...
 Look at the pumpkins we grew!
 Can we put a pumpkin in my wagon???
 It fits! Now, I just have to pull it to the house...
 "Too heavy Mommy"...
 Pulling the pumpkins up to the house...
Mommy and me with our red wagons...

A day in the life of Caleb

Play-Doh time with my best-friend,
Ya Ya (aka. Cayden)

Daddy's sandals... I put them on by myself, too!
...things were good until I tripped over my Elmo book

Helping Daddy in the dirt


throw it!! (look closely--the dirt's really in the air)

Windy days are great for bubbles!
(I haven't quite gotten the hang of blowing them myself...)

Scissors 101 with Daddy


yes, I stamped pink bunnies on my cheeks.
And the blond highlights? Yep, they're natural.
This is my "I've- been-playing-hard-all-day-sweaty-look"

me and my monkey scissors

....and time for bed.
