It’s been a while since we updated the site, life is busy… and we have been busy living it, instead of blogging it – our apologies to our faithful readers!
Lots has happened in the last month and a half. The holidays have come and gone – with lots of spoiling. Really now, what kid gets two bikes for Christmas…and neither are from his parents or Santa Claus! After some time working on accepting a helmet on his head, Caleb is loving cruising the cul-de-sac on his new sets of wheels!
Santa definately spoiled Caleb this year. And this year Caleb really understood about “ho ho ho”, presents and Christmas lights. He even sat on Santa’s lap twice, all by himself! (Hint to Adam to insert Santa picture here!) And he watched Santa come via helicopter to preschool. The best gift was watchng his delight in everything. The perfect gift though, was the fact that Caleb gave Mommy her Christmas wish… he said “love you Mommby”. This “mommby” is very proud!
Caleb’s speech is improving daily. He now tries to repeat everything we say (so all his uncles had better cut out the swearing!) Some days it’s fustrating for all of us, because we don’t understand him and he can’t say it the way he wants. But amidst all the tears, his little voice is the most precious sound. He’s even made up his own song… something to the tune of “bagel, bagel…la la la” or “preschool, preschool…la la la” or “mommby, mommby…la la la” – and it goes on and on!
Preschool has been a big hit! This month Caleb started one morning a week at preschool – conviently located at Mommby’s work. He loves being with the kids, and going to school. I spy on him sometimes, and love watching him tearing around the playground with the others. Everytime he goes, his speech seems to increase. We are so lucky to have found this spot for him!
Although life has been busy, we have been enjoying it. We love our time as a family. Thankfully I am now finished school – yay! And I’ve made time for ME a priority, which in turn seems to help me be a better Mom.
Happy New Year everyone! Enjoy your 2008!
