Family Verses

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, "and will bring you back from captivity."
-Jeremiah 29:11-14

1 Year Birthday!

Caleb is One! 1 year ago I could not explain or imagine how life would change for this family. Caleb has grown into a charming little boy. He started crawling 1 week before his birthday. It was hilarious! One afternoon we were playing ball, and there was a ball across the living room. He literally just decided to go get it! When he got to the ball he didn't stop.... he kept going to the kitchen. Then he got worn out! :)

We were in Illinois for his birthday, so we had a small party with family. It was a snowman theme and Caleb got to have a cupcake for the 1st time. Caleb had so much fun, and he even learned how to hold up his finger that he was 1! It was hilarious!

So far Caleb has a large vocabulary... "mama"(although he hasn't said it in over a month!), "dada", "do" for dog, "duh" for duck, "bah" for ball, "boo" for book, "p.t." for pretty tree (thanks to Grandma Becky!), "baba" for bye.

Caleb loves to be around people, which we are so grateful for! He is such a happy boy unless... he's tired or feeling poopy! He's going to be such a great helper to mama when his little brother/sister comes in March.
