Our Weekend In Pictures...






Caleb and Mommy around the campfire....


What a face!

I took this picture when we walked by the Tellico River Saturday afternoon. This has to be one of my favorite pictures of Ryan.

Caleb didn't really want to cooperate. There were too many things to look at!

Five Question Friday

Let's play Five Question Friday!!



Rules are: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then c'mon back to http://fivecrookedhalos.blogspot.com/ and get your link on!





Questions for Friday, May 28th:



1. Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet? Well, I did that this week. Ryan gave me a stand mixer for my birthday and I just not got the nerve to bake a cake from scratch. Other than that, I consider myself pretty brave when it comes to trying new things.


2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?
 Ha! Either him or Caleb! I hardly ever buy anything for myself because I really enjoy spoiling them!


3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?
The balance beam! My friends and I would run around acting like we were in the Olympics! If you even understood how amazing clumsy I am, you would picture that as being extremely hilarious!



4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?
I love cereal for breakfast! Lucky Charms make me bright and shiny inside! If I'm going to have a hearty type breakfast, I have to eat it for dinner. Ryan and I have done a lot of that lately.
5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?
Um, yeah....definitely OCD Neat Freak. Messy makes me feel like my life is just out of control. I can't stand it!

There are mine! Go share yours!

Ryan's Birthday Party

We all got together last night for Ryan's birthday and celebrated him turning 28! As usual, the babies were the focus of the evening. Sorry, Ryan!

Before we left last night, Dad and I were sitting on the porch. He said, "Parties aren't like they used to be around here!" The babies had bedtimes, the mommies were worn out, and we were all pretty calm! Two years ago, we'd have all piled in the hot tub, horsed around, and stayed up until who knows when. Funny how two little people can change a family so dramatically!

I actually attempted my first cake from scratch for my hubby. I was really intimidated and scared to death that it just wouldn't work out! Different cake disasters played out in my head. What if the icing was too hard? What if the cake just plain tasted like dog doo? What if the decorations could have been done better by a five year old? Yeah, seriously. This all went through my mind! So, here' the big reveal:


First of all, the icing was great! It was a lemon flavored buttercream. I made lemon poundcakes for both layers and decorated with blue tinted fondant. The lettering was done by melting chocolate and piping it on wax paper. When it dried, I transfered it to the cake. It looks like a cake a 12 year old could have pulled off, but overall I was pretty pleased with it. I generally bake from a box, smear store bought icing over it, and call it a day. This was an accomplishment for me, but I don't think I'll quit my day job to go make cakes!


Caleb and Zoey both got to try on their swim outfits for the first time! They were so cute! Zoey didn't much like the whole sitting in the pool experience and got bored with it. Caleb absolutely loved it! Once Zoey got out of the water, he went nuts splashing all over the place. It was really funny because he never really splashes with his hands in the tub. For some reason he just knew that was what he was supposed to do!

The poor blow up giraffe needed some air and since my hubby is all full of hot air, he was happy to help out! Plus, he's just naturally a person that likes to fix things!

Attractive, right?!?!?


Caleb's first time to celebrate Daddy's birthday!
And yes, we brought that big ol' dog back out again! We're seriously going to have to stop toting this thing around!

I'm in Love With an Older Man...

Yes, you read that correctly. I am absolutely, one hundred percent in love with an older man! My wonderful husband turned 28 today! For some reason, I find that very appealing. Then again, I'm probably just crazy!

I have known my husband since I was 12 years old. He was the wild boy that lived two houses down and I had this extreme crush on him the day we moved in! Did he even notice me? Absolutely not! Did I want him to? I would go outside to watch all of the neighborhood kids play just in case he happened to join them! Was there a chance we would have ever dated when I was in high school? Not even if Hell froze over. Ryan was a little wild for my parents' tastes and he was the example in our home of what "Wendy can NEVER bring home!!!" Imagine my parents' surprise when I did just that many years later.... (My dad did happen to threaten him the first time I brought him around when we were dating, by the way).

I have watched my husband grow from an immature, little snot into a loving husband and wonderful father. I have been crazy about him and he's driven me crazy! Every birthday I get to celebrate with him is such a blessing to me. He's part of my childhood and now a huge part of my adulthood. We have shared many awesome memories together and I love him more and more each day.

My Comments

It was just brought to my attention by some wonderful ladies that my blog comments were not working properly. I believe I have repaired this problem and am so excited to finally get some feedback on my blog!

I love feedback and comments, so feel free to leave as many as you would like! If you have questions for me or about my life, please feel free to ask! If you are a new follower on my blog, stop by and introduce yourself!

A Boy and A Pup


Yesterday I took Caleb to my parents' house after work! He was such a little ham and had everyone cracking up. He's getting to the stage where he's developing a personality and he's such a happy kid! My mom and Aunt Debbie spoiled him by letting him jump up and down in their laps. When my dad got home, he brought Caleb this huge stuffed dog. I have no idea where in the world I am going to put this thing, but Caleb just adores it!


There's just pure joy on that kid's face!

Granddaddy definitely wins the "Toy of the Week" award in Caleb's opinion!


Tell me that little face doesn't melt your heart!

Tellico = Family Time

Our weekend turned out to be really special because my brother, Brian, and his family spent the weekend with us. This was Zoey's first time to come and we had a great time! While the guys fished, Tara and I took the babies for a walk. Caleb and Zoey both ended up falling asleep in their strollers! This was the first time Tara and I had spent a whole lot of time together since having the babies. I realized that we have quite a bit in common and I would love to be able to spend some more time with her.


Caleb and Zoey love to swing! Brian and I have been coming to Tellico all of our lives. Who would have ever imagined we would bring our babies there together? I'm really sentimental, so this picture means a lot to me! I am so blessed that I have a brother who gets to share the new parenting thing with me. Here I was sitting beside my first best friend in life and I am hoping that Caleb was too.
Ryan captured one of my favorite pictures of me and Caleb this weekend. He looked so peaceful and I love when he falls asleep like this! It melts my heart!
When we started to leave, we all decided to go to my grandfather's fishing hole. When he passed away, a picture of him and my dad fishing in Tellico surfaced. My dad looked like he was about nine years old and they were standing side by side. It's hard to imagine that so many generations of my family have stood on that particular rock and enjoyed the river.

Three generations of family!

Brian, Zoey, Caleb and Me

Our two familes!

Mom, Caleb, and Me

Just the three of us...

Thursday Five....


So here is the deal...Today's the day where we post 5 things that have made us

Joyful

Giddy

Excited

Thankful

Jubuliant

or just plain ol' HAPPY!

1. I realized I have so many friends and family members who have joined me this week to pray for my uncle who is in the hospital. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful support system in my life!!! I am so grateful for everyone who has prayed and sent thoughts our way.

2. I found the perfect pink purse this week at an amazing new store! I will be frequenting that place quite a bit now....

3. My sweet hubby gave me the best massage last night because I had a rough day yesterday.

4. Even though Caleb was sick this week, he was extra snuggly with his mommy. I live for the moments when he only wants to love on me! Plus, we found a battery operated baby booger sucker at Babies R Us this week. No more trying to use the bulb aspirator thing! This is very exciting in the world of mommyhood!

5. The power of prayer is such an amazing thing. While I was discouraged yesterday, God gave me insight into a problem and my prayers have seemed to make a difference today!!! God is so good!

Retail Therapy, Baby!

My hubby's parents gave me a Hamilton Place giftcard for my birthday and I am just now getting around to using it. I have not been shopping for just me in forever and last night it felt so wonderful! Caleb and I loaded up and met Jessica and her son, Darian, for some walking, talking, and shopping! Blissful combination and I so needed it! I found an awesome store called Charming Charlie's. It is a woman's absolute Heaven on Earth! Everything is grouped by color (this OCD girl was flipping for that) and you can literally find any color purse, piece of jewelry, or accessory for any occasion! When we walked into the store, I immediately laid eyes on a gorgeous bright pink purse. I thought, "That is something I would really love, but don't have the guts to actually buy and use for myself. It's pretty bright..." and we kept walking through the store. Eventually, my wild side won out and I went back for the purse. It has compartments galore and I am lovin' in! It's my "cheer up any kind of mood" purse. So, I may be carrying this beautiful purse for a bit! I also found a wine bottle stopper that has our initial on it! Here are the things I ended up falling for and buying:


This purse is so soft on the sides!
So, now when I am cooking I have a way to save some of my wine in a pretty way!
While Debbie and I were at Kirkland's this weekend, I found all of these. The picture frame and blue wall plate are going in the living room and the gold "D" is going in our bedroom.

I think Caleb really enjoys hanging out with his mommy at the mall. He gets to smile at strangers and check everything out. He's at a really neat stage where he's just taking everything in right now. Darian was so good while Jessica and I walked around that we got smoothies from Smoothie King and went to the play area. Caleb was so excited because he got to watch big kids play! He was too cute!

Maybe he can be the Dillard's spokesbaby???

Wishful Wednesday: My Dream Bedroom


I wish I could come home to this bedroom every night:




I love this room! Unfortunately, my husband would never be able to enter our bedroom if I had this room! Imagine a boat mechanic coming in from a hard day's work and crashing on that bedding! I love the contast in this room and everything has such an elegant feel. Hey! I can dream....


Turning the Other Cheek

Matthew 5:39 states: "But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." I want to live my life positively and know that when I go to the Lord in prayer I do so with a good heart. I want to be an example not only to Caleb, but to anyone I come into contact with. There is a person in my life that I must come into contact with on a regular basis. I honestly believe this individual is one of the most negative people I have ever encountered. In immaturity and ignorance, we have clashed on more than one occasion. I am by all means ashamed that I could not be a more patient person in the past. As I have grown and matured through the past couple of years, I have put forth a lot of effort to make my relationship with this person be peaceful. It has taken a lot of work and I have practiced the priciple of turning the other cheek. Sadly, the peace has ended and we are not seeing eye to eye on some things. While this person is putting a lot of energy into ignoring me and casually getting jabs in, I am putting forth everything I have to stay positive and upbeat. As you can imagine, it's a difficult combination. My struggle today is keeping strength to keep doing what I'm doing. Silently I have wondered and asked God why my efforts are not paying off. I have prayed intensely that I have the ability to bring peace to the situation. I understand that God does things in His own time, but I am left wondering how much longer I can hold on to my hope and well-intentioned efforts.

I read an article pertaining to turning the other cheek on Growing Christians and was encouraged by the following paragraph:

"We see, then, that when interpreted properly the 'impossible' commands of Matthew 5:38-42 are possible. Possible, however, does not mean easy. Many times the obedient Christian will be "stepped on" and yet we are called to "take it" rather than retaliate. When someone takes advantage of us or insults us or talks behind our back or excludes us we are to 'turn the other cheek' and not retaliate. It may hurt us , cost us, inconvenience us , or exhaust us. There will always be those borderline cases where we must make decisions--sometimes very painful. But even in those situations which are not strictly 'turn the other cheek' cases, remember that mercy has always been God's rule of thumb."

I feel as if my faith is being tested at the moment. I know that God does everything for a reason, but I can't help but wonder what I am supposed to learn from this. I feel like I'm just not "geting it". I've searched my heart today to see if maybe I am harboring some type of ill feelings towards this person. To some degree, I am mostly frustrated. I do feel compassion for this individual. I know that they have had a tough life and their actions are directly influenced by years of abuse and sadness. This person has been a victim of parental and marital abuse time after time and it has formed them into a defensive, judgemental, and derogatory person. No matter how I try I do realize that I will never be able to influence a change in this person. There are some wounds so deep that only God can repair them. I have to accept that. All I can do is pray for this person to have peace and find some sort of resolution for the wrongs that have been done to her. My mom (in all of her calm reason) reminded me of that this morning. This whole time I have been praying for myself to have patience and strength while I should have been praying for the other person's issues as well. Now that I have typed that, I do feel a little selfish.

If you happen to stop by and read my blog and you're the praying type, please keep my situation (and all people in involved) in your prayers. I'm typically not one to share my problems with just anyone, but I could use all of the help I can get right now. I would love your support, kindness, and well wishes in this matter! I am so grateful in advance to everyone that sends prayers and advice!

Mother and Son

When You Thought I Wasn't Looking

When you thought I wasn't looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat,
and I thought it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me,
and I knew that little things are special things.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer,
and I believed there is a God I could always talk to.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight,
and I felt loved.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked...
and wanted to say thanks for all the things
I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.


A Mother and Son
There's a very special bond between and a mother and her son,
A closeness which grows deeper through the years
It's marked by tender moments, crazy antics, quiet talks,
And strengthened as they share their hopes and fears.
It forms and it develops very early on in life,
When he's unsure, but she says, "Yes, you can!
The bond remains unbroken growing ever stronger still,
Until her little boy becomes a man
Then as they both grow older, little things begin to change
And she learns she can rely upon her son
Life completes its circle, though at times to her it's strange,
For in her heart he's still her "little one"

TGIM????

Thank goodness it's Monday??? Yes, you have read it correctly. I, Wendy Del Signore, have announed for the first time in my life that I am thankful for a Monday! This weekend was absolutely exhausting and I'm ready to get back on our regular schedule. Caleb has been sick for the past few days. It started out with the same cold Ryan and I have had and progressed into a lot of congestion. Since Caleb had RSV when he was younger, the usual small cold can turn into a respiratory mess for him. I took him to the doctor this morning and he has to take a decongestant and Albuterol for the next several days. Taking Caleb to the doctor has to be one of the worst things in the world. I had to hold his poor little arms down while our pediatrician cleaned out his ears to look at them. Him screaming combined with the hoarse little voice he has developed was the most pitiful sounding thing I have ever heard. In that moment I promised my poor angel new toys, special baby foods, and a pony just to make him feel better. Seriously, in that moment I was willing to sell my home, all three vehicles, and my camper in Tellico just to buy anything that would make him feel better! I really think Ryan should be the one who takes him next time....

As you can imagine, I have been staying up through the night to help Caleb sleep better. Every time I hear a sniffle or a cough, my mommy radar goes off and I immediately wake up. Something in my brain is just wired to go off when my baby doesn't feel well.

Friday evening, Ryan and I packed up and hit the road for Tellico. The campground was full! It was nice having lots of people to talk to and catch up with. Caleb started getting sick that evening, so him and I sat in my parents'cabin and rocked to sleep. I woke up at about 12 am and noticed everyone else was still awake. I laid Caleb down in the bed and ended up talking until about 2 am! On Saturday, Caleb woke up and sounded really stuffy. We spent the day lying around on the couch napping. It was nice to have my little one snuggled up next to me the majority of the day. We got home Saturday around 11 pm and just crashed!



Caleb drinking from a sippy cup all my himself!

Caleb and Mommy in the car....

Caleb, Belle, and Granny! Can you tell how jealous Belle is???


On Sunday, I met up with my Aunt Debbie to have lunch, do some shopping, and go to my cousin's baby shower. We went to one of my favorite stores: Kirkland's! Since I am in the process of redecorating, I found several new things for the living room and they were all on sale! I have yet to find the pillows that I am looking for, but that's my goal for the week!

My cousin, Amanda, is having a little boy soon (someone for Caleb to play with) and her shower was Sunday. I'm so absolutely jealous because she looks so pretty pregnant! When I was that far along, Caleb was causing me to look like a hot mess! I didn't get a chance to tell her, but purple is definitely her color! She was absolutely glowing yesterday and I am so very happy for her. Honestly, pregnancy totally agrees with her! Amanda and her husband, Michael,  have traveled a long, difficult journey to have Baby Nicholas. If you want to check out her amazing story, click here. Grab your box of Kleenex and be prepared to see the wonderful things God can do! Their family is a prime example of what prayer and patience can do.

"Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart."
(Psalms 119:2)

Branching Out

I'm seriously trying to expand my blog and discover other blogs in the process. I have encountered some amazing stories, seen some beautifully written posts, and gained inspiration along the way. I use my blog as a journal to record special dates in our lives (that's the only way I'll remember anything to put in my scrapbooks) and to stay connected to friends and family.

Today I found a few wonderful blogs and just had to share them! First of all, I just found Pearls and Grace and she is one of my blogging idols! The name says it all. God has given her such talent in life and a beautiful family. She is uplifting, vibrant and completely inspirational! I look forward to reading through her posts while I sip my coffee in the evenings and listen to Caleb sleep through the baby monitor!

Through her page, I then found Southern Butter! Not only is she blessed with a beautiful little boy, but she's all Southern belle! Seriously, what's not to absolutely adore???

Hopefully, I will begin to find others in this bloggy world to connect with. If you happen to be new to my blog, please comment! I'd love to "meet" some of my readers.

The Living Room

Something my husband has had to learn about me is that I change my mind a lot! Therefore, things in our home can be transformed or rearranged at a moment's notice. Our living room has had a very traditional look for a while. My husband has a lot of Italian blood running through him, so when we first got married I decided to decorate with grapes, Italian countrysides, and darker colors. I have loved my living room for two years now, but I have got to change things up. I have decided to go with a more modern look. My walls (that I just so happened to spend two weeks painting) have a dark reddish-brown color with beige sponged on top. It looks really good, but I'm just tired of it. I want something with a more modern feel to it. Here are the before pictures I took last night:

My living room after Ryan has been sanding dry wall mud. He forgot to cover my couch and recliner, so that's just something else to clean....
Here's a close picture of one of the walls.
Yeah, that took forever to do!
So, my amazingly talented Uncle Trevor came over last night and began painting the hallway and living room for me. The new color is really opening up and brightening the area. We've only got the first coat on one living room wall and down the hallway, but I am immediately in love with it! Here's a preview of the color (remember that this is only the first coat!):


It's a light blue color with some gray in it.

We picked Behr paint Icy Bay for the walls.
My house is completely torn apart, but it is slowly coming together. I can't wait to decorate as I have several ideas going in my head right now. While I watched my uncle paint last night I kept thinking, "Thank goodness I'm not the one doing this! I'm horrible and impatient when it comes to cutting in!" He is so gifted when it comes to painting. That actually runs in my mom's side of the family. My grandfather was a painter, several uncles are painters, and my mom can keep up with the best of them! Seriously, my uncle can paint a straight line with both hands, using a four inch brush, while talking, and balancing on a ladder. If I were to try that, there would be paint on the ladder, paint on the carpet, paint on me, and none on the walls! I just don't have the Harper touch when it comes to painting and artistic creation. So as long as I keep the homemade cooking coming (which I happen to be pretty darn good at), Uncle Trevor does the painting! Lucky me, right???

Yesterday was a big milestone day at our house. Caleb turned six months old! I can't believe it's been six months since we welcomed him into the world. Lately he has done so much better when eating baby food. He can actually open wide and use his lips to get food off of the spoon. He's getting a little less messy with it too! As far as having a bottle goes, he can use a sippy cup now and can even drink out of a regular cup a little. He has fast flow nipples on his bottles and can finish a bottle in two minutes flat now. The kid eats like it's his last meal! It's really funny because he's so serious about it. He has also discovered how to jump up and down. When you hold him, his little legs are constantly wanting to bounce! He loves his jumper!

I have a very bad allergy to rice. My mom discovered it when I was a baby and I still cannot tolerate it to this day. We had been afraid that Caleb may have the same reaction, so we have always fed him oatmeal cereal instead of rice. Since he's eating second stage foods now, many of them have rice flour in them. I have been checking labels closely to prevent him getting any rice. Last night, I accidentally missed the rice flour in one of his baby foods. He ate a whole tub of it and did just fine! I think he is going to be okay with rice. I'm so happy that he didn't seem to inherit that from me. It's aggravating to have to read labels on everything you eat or be really careful at restaurants. We'll keep praying that he keeps tolerating rice.

Follow Up To My First Mother's Day...

I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my family. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Mom and Dad gave me a beautiful wall hanging for my soon-to-be redecorated living room! It's so pretty and will go perfectly in my living room! Ryan's parents gave me a Willow Tree keepsake box. It has a woman and child on the top. They had Caleb's name put on the inside of the box. I also got a little charm for a necklace with Caleb's name on it.

Ryan and Caleb took me out to dinner for Mother's Day and it was really special! I'm so lucky to have them!

Last night, I fed Caleb before his bath. He's eating second stage foods now and seems to really like them! He tried Banana, Plum, and Grape baby food last night and he couldn't get enough of it! I was able to get a couple of really adorable pictures last night before he got messy!

My First Mother's Day...

This morning I woke up to Caleb babbling through the baby monitor. I walked into his room and said good morning to him. I was instantly greeted with smiles and squeals. It is the little moments that make being a mother so enjoyable and special. It's the way he looks up at me when he's snuggling and trying to fall asleep. It's the way he grins at me during his evening bath. There are times when he only wants his mommy and those are the moments that stick out the most. I carried my child for nine long, sometimes difficult, months. I labored for twenty-one hours and had a C-Section to get him into this world. I have endured many sleepless nights. And it was worth every single bit of it! God gave me a beautiful little boy in return. I feel so blessed each and every day because of Caleb. Sure, teething troubles are exhausting and he fusses when he's hungry. A mother tends to notice those things less! I focus on his little head lying on my chest when he falls asleep at night. I notice the way he holds onto my finger when I feed him. When you're a mother, you take notice of every loving gesture.

This time last year, I was pregnant with Caleb. I found myself wondering if I would be a good mother. I worried about not knowing what to do with an infant. I was afraid to hold one or change a diaper, so how could I possibly be a decent mother? I didn't know the first thing about comforting a baby when it cried. I had never been a person that babies were drawn to. Despite having all of those fears, when Caleb came into my life I became a good mother. Holding him came easy because he liked to snuggle close. I changed a diaper successfully when there was no one around to help out. And I became the most comforting thing in Caleb's life as if I had been doing it for years.

I am so proud to be Caleb's mommy and I love the job. I thank God every day for blessing me with my angel.

Relief!

Our new air conditioner was installed yesterday! Ryan and I have patched the dang thing for two years and it finally died this year. We really lucked out to have it this long because it was our house's original unit. Around 7:00 last night, the guys finished installing it and we felt nice cold air for the first time this year. The house cooled off quickly and when Caleb finished his bath, he fell asleep snuggled up close to his mommy. Not only did Caleb sleep wonderfully last night, Ryan and I did as well. For the first time in a couple of weeks we got to snuggle up next to each other!

Caleb has been really loving this week. He has been extra cuddly in the evenings when it's time for bed. Two nights ago, he fell asleep next to me on the couch. His little hand was laid across me and I just couldn't stand to move him. I stayed there watching TV and him for two hours before I put him in his crib. He's so beautiful when he sleeps.

On a sad note, we lost one of our family pets yesterday. Our little pomeranian, Beau, fell in a bucket of water while we were at work. He couldn't get out and drowned. He was Ryan's little buddy and it has broken our hearts. Our chihuahua, Diva, has been looking around the house for him since it happened. She looks so sad and it's pitiful to watch. Ryan and I do not plan to get any more dogs after this. We get way too attached to them and it's always so painful to loose one.

OCD in Overdrive!

I'm completely obsessive compulsive and my family loves me despite all of that! I believe that everything should have order and things should be put back in place every time. I like for things to match and be organized. It's just me and I realize that I am different.

I enjoy looking at pictures posted on Facebook and MySpace. I like blogs from friends and family. I just have one little problem with something. When people take pictures of themselves or their stuff,  I notice their backgrounds. If someone has a messy area behind them, I really notice it. It drives me nuts! Why would anyone put a picture of their nasty home out there for all the world to see? Does it honestly not bother people anymore? Is it common now to live like pigs?

I was looking at someone's pictures on Facebook the other day and it just hit me! I noticed they took different pictures in areas of their home and it was all unorganized and messy. They took a picture of themself in their kitchen. The counters were cluttered, crumbs of food were everywhere, and floors were dirty looking. Another picture was in the bedroom. Curtains were a mess, the bed was unmade, and the dresser had clothes piled high. Someone just showed the world that they were completely dirty. Why would anyone do that?

No one wants to see your mess! Gripe session over.

Bath Time!

Caleb loves getting a bath! From the first time he was put in the tub, he has always enjoyed it. He has recently discovered how to splash around and get Mommy soaked. He likes little plastic toys in the bath tub, but only chews on them so far. Caleb doesn't care to have water in his face, but he's getting a little more used to it.

The bath is part of our bedtime routine in the evenings. I have fallen in love with the Johnson and Johnson lavendar bath wash. It so relaxing and it really does help Caleb sleep better. Huggies bath wash also smells really good too!

I got a chance to take a few pictures last night at bath time.
I love this little face!
For some reason, he really reminds me of Ryan here. They both give me this same little smirk!
Just chillin'!
