Looks and sounds like you have a little engineer on your hands there! His expressiveness and zest for life shines in these pictures, and you can tell he's such a great kid! Thank you for allowing us family members that don't live a reasonable distance away to keep up. Talk to ya soon!
Can't wait to see your little Two Year Old! He is such a handsome big boy. This is such a great update and I know he will appreciate all the thought and detail you put into not just recording his progress but communicating it in such a memorable way. You're such a great mommy!
I'll second those curls...super cute! I love the expressions on his face in the various pics here. The one of Caleb and Avery together in front of the fireplace is just precious. I know that it's a bit difficult for you, but I've got to think that Keith is having a blast getting to know his "little man!"
His little curls are so CUTE, and I think Owen will enjoy hearing his name pronounced...no matter how he does it...when we see you all next. Some of Owen's other cousins have said it that way too. Very sweet.
The photo of Keith and Caleb on the couch made me laugh out loud. No denying who his daddy is! I can remember my boys at that age being very purposeful in trying to mimic the way I sit, stand, and gesture. Cracks me up.
I can relate to "this stage might be my favorite." I think every stage has been my favorite so far. And I think every stage that comes after will also be my favorite. ;-)
It is absolutely wonderful to see the changes and development in Caleb through these posts. While we can't see him (or you guys, for that matter) nearly as much as we'd like, it's really nice to see the glimpses into every day life. I love the pic of him and Keith together...just adorable!
BTW, "Uh-oh" was one of your favorite things to say, too. :-D
Wonderful stuff! I'm sorry he's fighting sickness now and then, but that's all part of it. By the time Aron came along I was a lot less worried about sniffles and sneezes but it still isn't fun to deal with. I love how observant you are to his communication despite a lack of words at this point. It's obvious he is very smart and talking isn't necessary when he is still taking in so much around him. I am confident that when all the words come out he will astound us all.
If my stuffiness while in Tallahassee is any indication...Caleb may have been revisited by the yucks from Atlanta. I did miss you guys, we all did, but I'm certainly glad you had a perfectly peaceful New Years at home too. So glad Caleb is feeling all better.
To expound on the "Twodaddy" story...Shaun was very young and couldn't say the word that Mindie was using (not sure what it was anymore), so instead of figuring out how to say it, he reasoned (which I find brilliant, btw) that since our father was the "number one Daddy" he was the "number two Daddy"....and it stuck. Not that I was there, but I've heard the story enough. LOL
Nevermind how the story turned out, I'll always remember that old van with the Two-Daddy license plate on the front. ;-)
I can't believe how big Caleb is!! We can't wait to see him in a few weeks!!!
I'm glad you enjoyed it! Twodaddy is my grandfather. It is my understanding that my brother Shaun came up with it when he was a little boy and it just stuck. So, he's Twodaddy. Also, the pictures are courtesy of Mary, Kris, Linda, and Kenny and yeah they are great!
