Merry Christmas!

Here's a recent shot from a visit to Erik's parents' home - Courtney, Caleb, Erik, Dave (Erik's older brother), and the dogs. Merry Christmas from the Stroms!

Now you get to see the proud grandparets!

The two little cousins are wearing matching outfits from Gramma and Pappa, Kira is proudly sporting her Red Sox pajamas and holding on to "Lumpy". As you can see Jenna and Caleb are really enjoying getting to know eachother! They do say that babies love putting things in their mouths, so why would that exclude heads?! We had so much fun with erin and jim...we miss you guys.

Merry Christmas!

We celebrated Christmas with the Condaps on Wednesday. Mom cooked a great meal and we opened some presents together. Since we were all together we had to get a family photo, so here we are...not so easy to get all those little ones to look at the camera at the same time!

The Uncles.

Here are the proud uncles!

Colby and Kyle love their little neices and nephew. Jenna is 4.5 months old, Caleb is 3 months old, and Kira is almost 3 years old. Colby really enjoys getting Kira to wear his crazy thrift store clothes. Kira was all about the silly faces.

Tummy Time

Caleb is getting really good at lifting up his head. We spend time each day on our tummy to strengthen those neck muscles. I just realized that he likes to lay on the couch better than the floor. We can't wait for him to figure out how to roll over. He is obviously loving his tummy time and as usual he is drooling away (we actually caught this drool mid drip!)

The Condaps come to Chicago

We have had a busy weekend spending lots of time with Calebs cousins! Erin, Jim, Kira and Jenna came in on Friday to celebrate Christmas a little early. All the kids and grandkids will be together on Wednesday for the big Christmas picture and gift giving. (Kyle is still up at camp and Brooke is in Disney World with the Rills)
Caleb and Jenna are both big droolers, so they wear bibs a lot. They aren't playing together just yet...but someday soon! It is so
fun to have them here.
On Saturday we had some of the Mechers over. Here is Caleb with my cousin Samantha (she was one of the flower girls in our wedding).

Erik and I actually got to get out of the house last night! We went to our friends Ashely and Scotts wedding. Nana and Papa (Erik's parents) came over and spent the evening with Caleb. It was so fun to get dressed up and spend some time together, but we definitely missed him!


Caleb celebrates his first Thanksgiving!
