Caleb and I drove down to Savannah with Grammie to watch Pappy play golf this weekend. I was fortunate enough that this trip also aligned with my family reunion which was not too far away. We have had a great time and Caleb was able to ride on his first boat ride along with his cousins Ariel & Coby, Aunt Jessica and Grammy.

While here in Savannah, Caleb has started doing some serious walking. He has taken 15 + steps in a row, but will find himself going too fast and in evidently take a spill. I am so proud of him and so happy his knees are getting a little break from the beaten they have been getting.

Today I put shoes on him for the first time since he is wanting to get down more and practice his walking. It is bittersweet for me because I feel like he is growing up so quickly.

Yesterday, we visited with some of our sweet friends Dave & Laurie that recently moved to FL and we miss them so much! They have a precious little boy, Will, that is just a few months older than Caleb and they had a great time playing together in the mall playground. As you can see, the daddy's are very proud of their boys!

We also have been fortunate enough, while here in Tampa, to see our favorite furry friend Aspen. Aspen has been living at his breeders house while we were on our golf adventure out West. We are hoping to bring him back to Atlanta this summer after we get settled in our own place again. If you can believe it, he has had yet another growth spurt! He is quite the beast!

11 months old

Caleb turned 11 months old on Friday, April 2nd! He is just weeks away from his first birthday and I can hardly believe it! Caleb is becoming more and more independent each day. He loves climbing up and down the stairs, being outside and going for walks, splashing in the bathtub, playing with any dog he can lay his hands on, and mostly being the center of attention. He weighs 22 lbs and 14 oz. He enjoys eating spaghetti, salmon, yogurt, sweet potatoes, and lots more. He has 5 teeth and a sixth one cutting through. Caleb enjoys clapping his hands, waving bye-bye, bouncing and climbing in, under and on everything. He is a speed crawler so he has not found a need for walking very much yet. He will cruise around holding on to things and will occasionally take a step or two from one piece of furniture to the next.

Caleb, you fill our days with laughter, smiles, joy and love. You are my darling, precious boy, and silly one! I love you more than words can describe and am blessed beyond measure. You will always be my sweet little baby boy!

Congratulations Josh!!!!

We are so proud of Josh and his recent efforts on the golf course! He is officially a member of the Canadian tour and plays in his first Canadian tour tournament in two weeks. Unfortunately, Caleb and I won't be attending since the tournament is being held in Mexico--weird I know. Why in the world is a Canadian tournament being held in Mexico? I don't know exactly, but I guess there was just a sponsor that wanted to hold a tournament there so that is where he will be going. We decided it probably wasn't the best idea to take an 11 month old to Mexico so Caleb and I will be in Savannah that weekend watching Pappy play golf and at a family reunion.

Josh/Da da we are so proud of you and all your hard work! We will be cheering for you back in Georgia :)

Easter Weekend

Easter weekend has come and gone, but we took lots of pictures to remember Caleb's first Easter. Caleb and I enjoyed the Easter weekend with family in South Georgia where my parents were raised. We attended church with my Grandmother Adell, my parents, Aunt Virginia and our cousins Christie, Greg, Alexis and Austin at a Primitive Baptist church in Collins, GA. The church did not have a nursery for Caleb so he sat through the entire church service and did great! We went to 3 different egg hunts and Caleb quickly understood the concept of hunting eggs. He would get so tickled and proud after finding a bright colored egg hiding in the pine straw. He then of course would want to put each egg in his mouth to see what they tasted like. Unfortunately, daddy could not be with us since he was driving the car and our stuff back across the country from Arizona. We will have to do another egg hunt with daddy now that he is back :) Hunting eggs never gets old for children. In fact, my parents and aunts/uncles still like for my cousins and me to hunt eggs so they hide money eggs at the farmhouse for us "big kids" to have our own hunt. It turned out to be a great year for me and I found $52 worth of eggs!
