many firsts and 8 months old!!

I can't believe Caleb is 8 months old already!! I know I have said this 10,o00 times, but I feel like he was just born yesterday. So much has changed in the last 8 months, but our lives are so much richer than they were before Caleb joined our family. It is amazing how much a little 19 pound miracle can change your life!! We are so blessed to be Caleb's parents and we thank God each day for bringing him into our life. We love you, Caleb Michael!!!

At 8 months Caleb is...
-- crawling like a mad man!!! He is into EVERYTHING!!! He is into things we didn't even know you could get into!!1
-- talking ALL THE TIME!!! He says ba-ba-ba, da-da-da, ya-ya-ya and blah-blah-blah (yes, it is hilarious!!)
-- working the crowd with those eyes and charming smile
-- teething -- yuck. He has 2 teeth, and I think he is working on 2 more.
-- pulling up and attempting to cruise on the furniture.
-- giving hugs (so sweet) and kisses (so messy...it is more like he sucks on your cheek)
and so much more! He is a busy little boy!!!

The past few weeks have been VERY busy for us. We took Caleb to his first Gwinnett Braves game. He loved it. We went with our Sunday School class and there were lots of babies, so Caleb had a blast.

We also took Caleb to the pool for the first time. We thought he would love it since he loves the bathtub so much, and we were right!! He loved the pool and his float, but not the so much the big water mushroom. The water was a little cold for Mr. Man. :)

He loved Daddy throwing him up over the water.

Happy Boy!

We also had some quick visitors. My cousin, Stephaine and her family. Stephanie and I are very close in age and have always been very close. She is pregnant with her 2nd baby, a BOY, due in September. So, her son and Caleb will be about 11 months apart. We can only hope baby Armstrong and Caleb will be as close and Stephanie and me.

Stephanie (on the left) and Elise (my sister) due about a week apart. My sister is having a girl. :)

Reagan and Caleb -- our October 12th babies. :)

We have also been spending a lot of time back in our old stomping grounds, Mountain Park Park. :) Our nephew, Davis, is on the T-ball All Star team for Brookwood and they have had their tournament back where Michael and I grew up and played ball. We never knew how addicting t-ball could be, but we haven't missed a game yet!!! Davis is doing a great job and we are so proud of him! One more win and we (they) are off to the Championship Game!!! he he

Caleb even made it out to a few games. He is chillin' in his stoller with his cousin, Sara. She just got braces!!!

Whew! Typing all that out made me realize how busy we really have been! One more funny picture of Caleb napping...he was SO MAD about having to take nap. He was having a bit of a tantrum. He fell asleep with his legs still up like he had them....you know you are tired when you fall asleep sitting up!! :)
