Caleb - One Year!!!!

Caleb makes ONE year today!
We got to celebrate with Pappa, Grandom, Aunt Kristie and Sierra, and I must say, Aunt Kristie has a talent for decorating birthday cakes and cupcakes! All I can say is, "Thank you! Beautiful! And YUMMY!!! :)" I think Caleb is saying, "Yummy," too, once he gets a taste!! ;)

The pictures tell the first-birthday story...
Russell's favorite picture. He narrates, "I got this thing down, yall!"
Thank you, again, Kristie!!!
Seems like Caleb 'grew up' over night a couple of weeks ago! He's just gotten in his 3rd and 4th teeth (top front two), which was hard on him - poor guy - but he is using them to master eating all kinds of new foods! He eats blueberries, strawberries, grapes, chicken, hamburger, hot dog pieces, just about any kind of bean, homemade muffins, cheerios, and he's up for trying anything, thankfully! His FAVORITE would be graham crackers, just like Rhys when Rhys was his age! Caleb has also mastered drinking from a sippy cup, which is WONDERFUL!!! No more bottles! Hello, milk! He loves it!!!
He is pulling himself up to standing and stands very well, mostly still holding on to anything within reach. Caleb's also wearing a lot of outfits that Rhys wore, which is fun for me to see! Caleb's been in 18-month clothes since he was 10 months old! He's a big, strong boy! We are thankful!
This was just a cute picture...looks like he's singing along with the music of this piano-like toy. :)
Caleb's been crawling for about 2 weeks...So, no problem keeping up with big brother anymore! :) He and Rhys play so well together, which is truly something I've been looking forward to since we found out we were pregnant with Caleb! It's a dream come true!!! "Thank You, Lord! Thank You! Thank You!!" We are coming into a sweet season of new fun!
He has also graduated to his forward-facing car seat, which has been like a new world for Caleb! He enjoys watching the 'new' scenery, and I love it because it's easier to see him from my rear-view mirror!

It's been a good year with you, Caleb Christopher Wright, and I'm excited beyond words for more years to come, getting to really know who you are, big man!
Happy happy happy :) birthday!!!!
Love you!!!
