Somebody STOP him!!!

This kid is growing up way to fast for this momma! I can't believe the things this kid is doing and trying to do! Here are a few snapshots of the past two or three weeks.

This is his favorite thing to play with these days. It's a car that he can push along that has about a thousand buttons and levers to keep him busy. He likes to run over his sisters with it to! I hope that's not a taste of things to come!
The weather is getting cooler here, so we had to go shopping for our little man. Brooklynn picked out this vest-jacket thing. It's adorable on him! I don't know how well it came out in the picture, but let me assure you this kid is over-the-top handsome!
So, he's obviously learned to pull up on things, so it's a common occurance that he stands up in his bed. It's one of those things that just shocks you when you walk in and he's standing up for the first time! He's been doing it for awhile but this is one of the first times I was able to catch it on film. We can't keep Kylee out of his bed--as you can see!

Here's a solo shot! Doesn't he look proud of himself!

The other day, I was folding laundry and turned the basket upside down for him to pull up on. He had a good time using it as a walker and pushing it around the room for a few minutes. Then.....he figured out that if he lifted his little knee up, he could climb on top! I quickly put his leg back down, but Kylee was determined to teach her little man to climb (she's the pro in the house). So, needless to say, this sweet boy is keeping me on my toes!

Where we left off...

It's been awhile since our last post...sorry! We've had one of those, 'oh my gosh, when will this end?", whirlwind kind of months that makes you want to fast forward time.

Caleb, at the ripe ol' age of 6 whole months went into the hospital with pneumonia! My poor little man was a sick little puppy! He spent 4 days with IV's in his head and breathing treatments every 2 hours! It wore us all out to say the very least! But, as you can see from the photo below (taken today) that's he's feeling much better!

While Caleb was in the hospital, both the girls went in to see the doc! Kylee had a sinus infection and looked pitiful. Here she is today, looking much better!
Brooklynn had staph infection on her leg, but it didn't slow her down much. She was even kind enough to ask the nurse for a sucker to take home to Kylee!
This photo is from this afternoon. It's been a little chilly here in the mornings, so she picked out this adorable hat/glove set to keep her cozy. She's been wearing since we left the checkout counter!

In the midst of all of this, we managed a trip to Texas to see the grandparents. The kids went to the Fall Festival. We spent a couple of hours getting their costumes together. They all looked adorable! They went as the three little pigs (the girls) and the Big Bad Wolf (Caleb). We got there and they spent about ten minutes in the costumes--which ended up in the trunk of the car! Oh well--they were cute!

Mommy and Caleb (right about the time his Bhroncitis hit).

The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf (at least half of the costume made it)

So, we are all home now and finally getting healthy! I, for one, am glad it's all over! It was pretty scary to see Caleb so sick! Thank you to 'the moms' who drove from Texas to help take care of my kiddos! Thank you, also, to the BTF friends that fed us, visited us, and prayed for us!
