3 Months

- 11 1/2 pounds
- sleeping 7-8 hours at night
- cooing and smiling when we talk to him
- loves to lay under his play mat and swat at things
- can sit in the bumbo chair
- puts up with lots of abuse from his brother
- taking zantac for his acid reflux
- eating about 4 ounces every 3 hours
- is a slave to his pacifier
- loves being held
- rarely ever cries
- likes to be wrapped really tight in his giraffe blanket
- still isn't the greatest napper
- hates being on his tummy

He really has been such a blessing for our little family. I can't imagine life without him and his sweet disposition and happy personality is an answer to our prayers.

Santa Clause

Last weekend our church had a Christmas party. Of course Santa happened to be at the party and I thought it would be fun for Caleb and Ethan to take a picture with him. I put Caleb on Santa's lap and he didn't seem to mind at all, but then I put Ethan on Santa's lap and Caleb went crazy! He was so upset, he screamed and cried. I quickly took him off an he calmed down in no time after being handed a candy cane.

After Santa and dinner there was a program. As part of the program the children created a nativity and sang Away in a Manger. Caleb was one of the angels. Do you see him on the far left... ya he didn't exactly stay where he was supposed to, instead he walked around picking up props and dancing. I think he even clapped at the end when the adults started clapping. I wish I could get the video loaded because it is pretty funny.

Christmas Train

I love Christmas and all the traditions that usually accompany the holiday. One of my favorite childhood traditions is this train. As a little kid my dad would put it up every year. As kids we really loved this train and we often found ourselves in bed early for loving it (touching it and knocking it off the track) just a little too much.
Over Thanksgiving my Dad brought the train to us! YEAH! And now Nathan and I get to share this tradition with our little boys. As soon as we put it up Caleb loved it. He loves to sit and watch it go around and around. Thanks for bringing this to us, Dad.

Swagger Wagon

We are officially the most uncool people you know. Last night we bit the bullet, let go of all our pride (and Nathan's man card) and bought a minivan. Here she is in all her glory. We are totally in love though, these things are so practical and so nice when you have little kids.

Life with 2

Yesterday I attempted to take a few photos of the boys in hopes to get one good enough for our Christmas card this year... as you can see by the ones below it was a little chaotic.

Natural Bridge Caverns

While on our  trip to San Antonio with our families we stopped at the Natural Bridge Caverns. They are located about 30 minutes northeast of San Antonio. The caverns were really neat. It is worth your time to stop in and take the tour if you are ever in the area. It took about an hour to get through them and the tour is guided. Although our guide was a 17 year old girl who mumbled and talked unbelievably fast so whatever information she might have been spewing was probably worth knowing but since nobody could understand her, we will never know.
 See the angry face below? Caleb hated the whole experience. I wouldn't advise taking toddlers who hate the dark and being confined in a small space.
