Home Sweet Home

Two weeks ago, I was able to take both kids and go to Oklahoma and visit our families. Chris is preparing for trial, and therefore working like a madman, so he wasn't able to go. I HATE to fly and wasn't dare going to fly alone with my infant and 4 year old, so my wonderful friend Jesse agreed to go with me. Jesse fit right in with our family, as if she had always been there! I think everyone is hoping she'll come visit again. We were able to see lots of family and we all had a blast even though our trip was short. I will have to do more than one post because I have quite a few pictures. Here's the first batch...

My Caleb

Caleb overheard me say that an older woman I knew had died. Being his typical dramatic self, he immediately said, "I don't want to die!" I told him not to worry, he would die when he was old and it was better anyways because he would get to go to heaven. He said, "well, are you going to be old when I'm old? Because I want to go to heaven with you."

Caleb is and always has been a sweet child. He gets funnier everyday and it has been so fun to watch him become a big brother. He loves Aidan so much (sometimes a little too much for Aidan) and tries to be a big helper to me. He is a complete and total Daddy's boy, but always tries to protect me if Chris starts teasing me. He usually says, "NO Daddy, I'm the one who loves her"! Chris says, who can argue with that? We just enjoy him more everyday. Here are a few pictures of my wonderful Caleb.
