I Walk The Line

Ryan, Caleb and I packed up and headed to Tellico this past Friday. We have been in prep mode for the last couple of weeks at the camper. Ryan and I decided to have our family vacation there this year and have been busy with much needed projects to make our stay nicer. We have put down new carpet and linoleum, hooked up and plumbed the water heaters, and brought a grill up. Other than stocking the freezer with food, we are ready for a vacation!

This weekend we were finally able to give Caleb a bath in our own camper! He absolutely loved it! The toilet is right beside the tub, so I had an easy way to bathe him!

Looking at Mommy
I know being in a camper is not totally roughing it in the wilderness, but I don't care. I have to have a real bed, a bathroom, kitchen, and TV in order to "rough it"! Being by the campfire is plenty enough outdoor adventure for me!

On Sunday, Caleb spent the afternoon with his Giggy. While he was there, she tried to teach him how to pull himself up. Looks like he learns pretty quick! I sat Caleb in his crib while I gathered stuff for his bath that evening. I turned around and found this:


Caught!
Looks like it's time for Daddy to lower the crib matress!

Daddy and Giggy thought this was hilarious. I think things are about to get very busy for me...

Before bed, I tried one more time to get a picture of the teeth. We're getting closer!

Okay, so it's fuzzy and I had to get bitten in the process, but it was worth it!
Caleb tried Cheerios this weekend and just loved them! He's already using his two teeth to crunch things up!
It seemed like all he did was eat this weekend. He must be going through a growth spurt right now.
I made cornbread with our dinner last night and Caleb really seemed to enjoy the piece I gave him.

Other than that, we've had a pretty normal weekend. Caleb seems to be learning new things every day. I actually cried on our way home from Tellico this weekend. And Ryan laughed at me. Time is passing too quickly. The newborn stage flew by. He's looking more and more like a little boy every day. As a mother, it is hard to see all of the stages pass so quickly. I know the day is coming that I won't get to rock him to sleep or have him totally dependent on me. At the same time, I've never been so proud to raise such a healthy, happy child and see him grow. It's a balancing act and I never have been accused of being graceful! I'm stuck in the middle of clinging to him as a baby, but so ready to see the little boy he becomes.
 Oh, what a fine line I'm walking...

  5. You are so right about time flying by, it seems just like yesterday that I was rocking you to sleep, and having the same feelings as you. I'm so very proud of you and the great mother you have become. I love that you have shared Caleb with me this week. What a great time we have had!
