Version 2.5

Caleb is 2 1/2 years old today! What an amazing blessing this little boy is to our family. We just love him so much!

Here are some fun facts about our little guy as of late:

Par for the Course...

He is still loving sports.....and, that may be an understatement! Lately, his favorite is golf. And, he doesn't seem to mind that he doesn't have an actual golf set (maybe an Easter gift?). He uses whatever he can find to golf....a baseball bat, vacuum attachments, a spatula. And, playing golf on the Wii (or watching us play) is a favorite activity. He even enjoys watching golf on TV, which in my opinion is quite boring. =) If you spend some time at our house, you may hear things like "Nice birdie!" or "Good shot!"


We have had some successful moments with potty-training, but we're not quite there yet! Hopefully he'll be fully trained soon...we are VERY much looking forward to that day! VERY MUCH.

Brother Bear...

Caleb is such a good big brother. While he can get a little possessive of his toys at times, he is generally very sweet and caring with Meredith. He loves to give her hugs, tell her how cute and beautiful she is, and is quite protective of her.

They have started "playing" with one another....their favorite game to play is when Meredith reaches for Caleb's face to "tickle" him and they both start cracking up. Love it!

Meredith adores him. He does so much as look her way and she lights up. I absolutely love the relationship they already have and I am so proud of Caleb for how he cares for her.

Loving to Learn...

Caleb has wowed us with his ability to remember things and to learn new things. He has recently been making the connection between the letters and the sounds they make....with this, he is able to spell simple words.

He loves to point out letters and numbers and shapes everywhere we go. Although, he seems to think that everything spells his name....for instance, the other day, we drove by a 7-Eleven. He saw the sign and said "E-L-E-V-E-N spells Caleb!"


While Caleb still enjoys time to himself, he has really come to love playing with his friends. He has a handful of special friends that we see on a regular basis, and also enjoys playing with friends at church. I am so thankful to have so many friends who are moms of children around Caleb's age!

  • Toys: Baseball bat, balls
  • Lovey: Blue blankie
  • Show: Word World
  • Movie: The Polar Express (he calls it The Polar Bear Express!)
  • Food: Chicken Nuggets, bread
  • Treat: Suckers
  • Colors: Purple, red
  • Game: Golf on the Wii
  • Book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar (he has it memorized!)
  • Song: Our God is a Great Big God
  • Out-of-the house-activity: Monkey Joe's (he loves to jump!)
  • Article of Clothing: His football slippers

Caleb's well-visit today went great. The doctor was pleased with his growth (34 pounds, 37.5 inches) and Caleb didn't have to get any shots, so that is good! Oh, and the doctor didn't make me feel like a loser mom for not having him potty-trained yet, and I was very thankful for that.

He is healthy and growing. I am blessed to be his mommy.
