Happy {13 & 14 Months} Caleb!

Caleb is 14 months can this be?!

My sweet Caleb,
I know I must sound like a song on repeat, but every month just keeps getting better. These past two months have been a blast with you around! We celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas, and rang in the New Year {you were sick though poor kiddo} together. 

You are extremely active now. After you turned 13 months {in December} you started using sign language like you had been able to sign all along. You are a tricky-trickster for holding out so long! In one day, you signed "milk", "more", "eat/food", and "finished". And it wasn't just a one time sign ALL of the time now! I'm so proud of you!! 

The biggest development at 13 months was you said "momma" for the first time! It sounds more like "maaaaaawwwwma", but I'll take it! You only say it when you fall or if you're in pain, but that's because I give the best kisses and I have magical hugs that make everything turn into rainbows and butterflies!

At 14 months, you can say "dada, momma, ball {"ba"}, thank you {"tank--oo"}, bye, and Ariel {"air--o"}. 

You love to snuggle! You will go into your room {Oh! You can open doors now too...we have to keep the bathrooms locked!},  grab your blanket and pacifier, and then come and sit in my lap. It's my FAVORITE time of day! You also like to go grab a book and then sit in my lap so I can read it to you. I LOVE it! Please don't stop doing this! 

Your favorite thing to do during play time is either throw your toy balls or kick them. You're actually really good! Mrs. MT {your babysitter, while I work in the morning} said that you have really good hand-eye coordination for your age. You can kick a ball and make it go into the box. You can also hit a big ball with your bat when we throw it to you. It's quite impressive considering I still can't hit a baseball, or throw, or play any sport for that matter.

Caleb, Daddy and I love you so much! We love snuggling with you, playing with you, reading to you, and just being around you! We hope you know how much you are loved. 


  1. I love my Caleb. Know we need to teach him the Grandma sign.

  2. What a wonderful smile he has! Lovely photos.


I love reading your comments, so don't be shy!
