3 years and 6 months

How do I have a 3 year old?? And how in the world is Abby already 6 (1/2 opps!) months old?!?! Time with these 2 is often times exhausting, trying, and hard, but we wouldn't have it FOR.THE.WORLD! They are amazing, and we love them so.

Caleb at 3 years....
Is ALL about baseball and football. Actually, anything with a ball. He has been this way since I can remember. He just loves sports.
Is TRYING to be potty trained. We are wearing pull-ups, and trying our hardest. Our goal is Christmas break. We'll see -- y'all hold me (I mean, Caleb) accountable!!!
Is still sleeping like a champ (wish he would clue his sister in). He goes to bed at 7:30-8 each night and takes a 2-3 hour nap after lunch. We are no where near ready for that nap to go away.
Is getting better about his extreme picky eating habits. Michael says "there is picky, and then there is Caleb." He has recently started eating chicken nuggets from fast food places and not just the Tyson ones mommy makes.

Knows his ABC's, can count to 20, knows his colors, shapes, and is starting to recognize numbers. He can consistently recognize 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8.
LOVES books. I think we have already read all of the Christmas books we have. Guess it is time for a trip to the bookstore!
Has an imagination you would not believe.
LOVES.LOVES.LOVES his sister. It melts my heart. He is so protective of her.
Finally loves school! :)
Loves milk, but not dirty milk (AKA: chocolate milk).
Weighs 28.6 pounds and is 36.75 inches tall
Wears 3T everything, but the pants have to be adjustable (skinny like his daddy!!)

Abby at 6 months old....
Is affectionatly called a "hot mess."
hasn't met a food she doesn't LOVE (with the exception of peas -- who could blame her!)
does not love to sleep....mommy does....we are currently in discussions about this. :)
LOVES.LOVES.LOVES her daddy and her brother. Mommy isn't bad either. When she see's us, she goes NUTS.
Has a poker face a lot of the time. Her brother can make her smile almost every time!!!

Loves bath time.
Loves to be outside.
Lets you know when she is hungry, and you better be ready!!!
Likes her paci....does not love.
Is sitting up, crawling, rolling -- you name it!
Has 1 tooth, and it looks like another one on the way!
Is wearing a size 2 diaper, and mostly 6-9 month clothes. However, some 3-6 month stuff still fits.

These 2 souls are the most amazing gifts I have ever been given or will ever receive. They are 2 of the sweetest (most of the time!), most loving, and beautiful (just ask their grandparents) I have ever known. Mommy and Daddy love you, Caleb Michael and Abigail Susan!!!!!
