A Little Fun and Then Not

The past couple of weeks have been quite busy. Caleb is continuing in his vocabulary growth spurt. He is very adept at saying hi now and even waves at the same time. He also has mastered any word that ends in a y or a sound in that area. He loves to say baby, daddy, kitty, puppy, etc. He also loves to point out babies and say baby over and over. Maybe he's trying to tell us something!!! Caleb has also become quite the copy cat as he will repeat everything that his dad or I say. For example, if we are talking on the phone and tell the person bye, he will walk around saying bye for a good half hour. I guess now is when we need to start watching what we say and what he hears even more!

We took Caleb to a playground that is near our house. He loves to go down the slides, but refuses to do it facing front and on his bottom. He likes to go down this way or head first!

We had to pose him for this picture. Be assured that he promptly turned around and flew down this slide head first! The playground is not only a workout for Caleb, but also for mama and daddy!

We try to take turns climbing on the equipment with Caleb. This time was daddy's turn!

As you can tell, we had a great time!

On Sunday, Jes decided that it was time to pass another kidney stone. We ended up in the ER while he was pumped full of narcotics! Take a look at his face and you'll be able to see that he is feeling good in this picture. Good thing because it was almost impossible to keep Caleb off his bed!
Right now Jes is in Canada, so I am getting a taste of what being a single parent is like. I have a new appreciation for those people! Caleb walks around saying "nada", his version of Canada and both of us can't wait for him to get home!
