I got some cute shots of Caleb eating snack this morning. He had some Teddy Grahams with a glass of milk. He dips each Teddy Graham into his milk before he eats it, usually getting half of his hand wet with milk. I just thought he looked like such a big boy sitting there eating his snack. He is just getting so big, although he is still very much a momma's boy. I keep waiting for him to go through a big "I want daddy" stage, but it hasn't happened yet, although Caleb loves to play with Glenn. I think it is because daddy rough-houses with him more than mommy does. Isn't he a cutie?

We just had a wonderful weekend at Camp John Marc. This is a camp for kids with special needs. This weekends camp was for families that have a child with Spina Bifida. There were about 16 families there, most of which were from North Texas. It was so great to see all of these different kids and their abilities. It was wonderful to meet so many other parents that understand what it is like to have a child with Spina Bifida and all the things that go with that diagnoses. The camp provided several activities for us to do. We had a campfire with s'mores the first night, Caleb was mostly interested in the graham cracker, he didn't quite know what to think about the marshmallow. Caleb got to pet a snake (yikes), a bird, and a bunny. He also made some slime with daddy. Saturday night was a carnival in the barn with all the families and their kids, that was the most fun. Caleb was in his mobile stander and I have to tell you that I have never seen that boy be so social. He was all over the place, playing with different people, giving other mom's hugs, and he followed this adorable little girl with curly blonde hair around (she did have a snow cone in her hand so we aren't sure if it was her or the snow cone Caleb was after). I was just so proud of him, he had such a blast that night. We went fishing this morning but didn't catch anything, Caleb enjoyed it when another dad caught a fish and let Caleb touch it. Anyway we had a great time, this camp is such a wonderful place and we are looking forward to going back next year.
Caleb got some new PJ's this week. I call them Big Boy PJ's because they are the first set of 2 piece PJ's that Caleb has ever had. I took this picture the other morning right after he woke up, that's why his hair looks crazy. I couldn't get him to look at the camera because he was watching Sesame Street. Doesn't he look like such a big boy?

I know this is going to sound crazy to most of you but Caleb had his very first sucker today. I know you are thinking that a 2 year old should have had dozens of suckers by now (Caleb's grandparents think we deprive him because we try to keep sweets to a minimum). Anyway Caleb's speech therapist came today and she thought that licking a sucker would be a good way for Caleb to exercise him mouth so we gave it a try. Of course, he LOVED the sucker, it was grape. He did lick it a couple of times but quickly realized that you have to suck on it if you really want to get the full flavor. He didn't get to finish the entire sucker though because we would have been there all day waiting for him to finish. He was just too cute with his sucker, so I had to take these pictures. I guess we can do more suckers in the future if his speech therapists says it will help with his speech, she also said we could have him lick popsicles! I'm sure Caleb would love that!
