"How's your applesauce? It is good, I'm glad to help you mom!"
"Who is this? I know who this is. Actually this is James. Yep that's right, it's James!"
"Goodnight Adrienne, I love you, see you morning, bed bugs bite"
"You watch Adrienne's moves?" (the movie is called Baby Moves!!!haha!)
"I love pretzels! I love marshmallows!"
"I too heavy, I too heavy!"
"You want some more? You want some more?"
"Whadisthis...chips! Oh yeah chips!" (Actually rice cakes)
With hands shaking in the air...."Are you kidding me?"
(Caleb)"What you like? I like Apple Juice" (me) "We don't have apple Juice" (Caleb) "What you like? I like Apple Kiwi Strawberry Juice" (me) "We don't have Apple Kiwi Strawberry Juice." (Caleb) "I like Orange Juice."
"Thomas hit Henry's buffer. Oh no Thomas!"
"What you like a lunch? I like...................(very long pause).........I like applesauce!"
We changed Caleb's bed into a toddler bed which has been an interesting adjustment. Last night he came out about 12 times and he just looks at you and doesn't say anything. As I direct him back, I saw "What are you doing?" and he repeats me word for word and then I say "Why do you keep coming out here?" and again he repeats me word for word. Made me laugh til about 10 o'clock when I had to put my foot down and completely shut his door and it worked!!
The last few days he's just been hilarious. I was doing dishes today after lunch and he was laying on the floor eating grapes and playing with his new trains when all of a sudden he yells "Carly Smithson". I just about died. If you don't know who she is, she is the latest American Idol cast-off. I mean the 10 minutes we actually got to watch he remembers everthing! And Thus. I had to get to store, and Caleb is quite the talker at the store. All of a sudden he points and yells "Ryan Seacrest" and if you've ever heard his yell, it's stinking loud. Thankfully the guy(who actually kind of looked like him, turned around and thought he was pointed at a magazine or something. Praise the Lord!! I'm sure that won't be the last of him embarassing me in public!
One day this week before I nap, I told him since it was nice we'd go outside to play in his sand and water table when he got up. After he ran into the living room, he immediately says "Want to go play in the sand table?" I mean he was on a mission!
When we were leaving the store he was kind of having a fit, so I told him we got all the groceries we needed and it was time to go home, we are all done. He goes "Mission Completion!!" HAHA! It's from Little Einsteins, they go on missions in each episode and always say that when they finish.
We finally learned the sign of the cross, but he totally doesn't concentrate during the prayer haha! We'll keep trying.
I could go on forever, the kid is a walking memory bank!

We checked out Democracy park at 86th and Fort. It was super fun, but still a little old for Caleb. He had a lot of fun though. Then we went on a walk on the Keystone Trail and met some horses :-)
Their slides were super slippery!!!
I love this one!
We've been to Standing Bear Lake twice this week. All the paths are now sidewalks and it's really pretty there. The first day we just walked around(for like two hours!!) and Caleb liked stomping in the dirt and sitting on the rocks by the water. The next day he got right in, a little two brave for my taste, but he had a blast!! I love the ripples in this pic!
Mom was the official rock finder, although I wasn't fast enough for Mr. Caleb.
Unfortunately I took Caleb out to lunch after this, just the two of us and we had our third most traumatic experience ( #1 Caleb's Surgery, #2 Locking himself in the bathroom). We went to Panera and he DID NOT want to hold my hand walking back to the car so he started running ahead of me and to a huge face plant into the cement. I still feel horrible about it! Now he has a huge strawberry on his forhead and fat lip. He was bleeding a lot and screamed for 25 minutes. Ahh I have a feeling this will NOT be the last time!!! :-( Luckily no chipped tooth or need for stitches but still nonetheless traumatic!!
They have this awesome ball room, where you put the balls in these shoots and they fly everywhere and tons of other things. I think he could have stayed in there all day long!
Adrienne did pretty well, she's not exactly fond of sitting in the stroller for a long period of time, but she loved watching all the kids.
If Caleb was bigger, he could stomp down on this and shoot the balls into the air, but he still liked standing on it!
Every 15 minutes or so a siren goes off and all the balls that filled into the bag, get dropped on all the kids. It's quite a site and the kids run like mad to get all the balls, Caleb just wanted to watch!!
See the green ball, it's floating in the air!! Caleb was a little scared of this so mom and dad had to do it for him.
Dad even had fun playing with some of the older things!
Ahh, mom definitely did most of the work, but isn't it cute!! This is in the arts and crafts center.
Caleb got absolutely drenched at the water station. Next time we'll be bringing extra clothes!!
Crawling in the fire house!
A large, ship/tractor/train was the first thing and the last thing he played in!
Leaving the OCM, unfortunately Caleb was a little upset to go and neither of them wanted to ride in the stroller :-(
Adrienne was very glad to be home!

There were very few presents that were not Thomas the Tank Engine. He was just blown away by all his new Thomas stuff! He got a Thomas tent, swim trunks, pajamas, watersocks, outfit, stickers, tattos, books and even two new trains "Emily" and "Rosie".
This is his new trike( from Grandma and Grandpa Rossiter) but we call it a motorcycle cause it's just cool! He loves riding around even though his legs are too short. It makes some super fun sounds that Adrienne just loves!
Adrienne even got to try it out! She would much rather listen to the music and flashing lights though!
Showing off his new picnic table and "Emily" Train!
Peeking out of his new Thomas Tent...so much fun!
Grandma and Grandpa Rossiter...ahh too bad Caleb still can't smile right!
Adrienne missed most of the party, as she was passed out, but when she got up it took her quite some time to get used to everyone!
See what I mean!!!
The next day we put his new Thomas underwear on. Crack me up! That face totally rocks!! Can't wait till he is really wearing them :-)
