Caleb 11 Months

He is so grown up I can't believe it! He took his first steps all by himself!!! He is a climber now too- up on the couch and brother's bed. He started pointing at everything recently. He has 3 teeth now. He will say things like, "all done", "milk", and "more" but I think I'm the only one who understands him. He is, however, excellent at saying, "Mama".

Just before we go to bed at night, Jacob and I will creep into his room and watch him sleep for a minute. We love seeing what crazy position he is in at the moment and he always looks so adorable when he is asleep. Sometimes it takes all that I have not to squish him and pinch his fat legs. 
He loves getting his thighs squeezed. He thinks it's a perfectly normal greeting to pinch someones cheek (he does it to me and I've seen him do it to other babies/toddlers)... not at all surprising since friends and strangers find his cheeks irresistible.
 
 
 
 Waving!

 
Archie "helped" the whole time. It was a challenge to get Caleb to look at me with Archie and his camera around.

Archie's Mailbox

Archie listened too Frog and Toad are Friends recently and was going on and on about the mailbox and getting a letter. So, when I was putting Caleb down for bed, Jacob found a cardboard box and made Archie a mailbox complete with a red flag and letters. He loved it and was playing with it nonstop for about a half a day. 
I decided to take a few picture of him since I had a back drop up anyway from a newborn session and we had a few minutes before we had to leave for the library. He had to have his new mailbox with him for the pictures.
