Wednesday's with Daddy

On Monday, Erik's classes began, officially starting his last year of seminary. His course schedule will be challenging, but it still allows lots of quality time at home with Caleb. Particularly, on Wednesdays Courtney works from 8-4, so Caleb and Erik get that extended stretch of time together to hang out and have fun!
This Wednesday, while playing in the family room, Caleb suddenly got really interested in his little red chair. It didn't take long for him to "figure it out" and enjoy some quality loungin'.

Once well-rested, Erik decided that it was time to get Caleb pumped up and ready for the football season by practicing a few plays and running some drills. Caleb had a solid performance: two fumble recoveries with his teeth, three solo Daddy-tackles, and multiple drool stains. Young Strom has said he's eager to get his second season of football started. Go Bears!

So I went to the mall yesterday and decided to take a peek at the baby shoes at Payless and spotted these! I could not believe that they made "Crocs" so small. Caleb seems to be enjoying them as well (we've had a hard time getting him to smile for the camera lately, but not today)!

11 Months Old!

Today was Caleb's 11 month birthday! We headed over to the water park this morning...he is starting to enjoy the little fountains, but still not so sure. Check out that farmer tan! We had a playdate with Greta Johnson in the afternoon and some friends over for dinner.

Happy 3 Year Anniversary

More family reunion

Here is Caleb with Skylar and Brixton at the family picnic on Sunday. My mom has the huge group picture on her camera, so I need to wait to get that from her. We had a great time except on Sunday afternoon, just before Brooke, Caleb and I were going to get on the plane to come home...Caleb had the runs! Thankfully he held off while we were on the plane!
Just thought this turned out to be a cool picture.

All better!

Christiansen Family Reunion

Caleb and I drove up to Minnesota for the Christiansen family reunion. It was Caleb's first road trip with my dad...which means no stopping! Caleb was great, we stopped one time for gas and a little stretch. Other than that he took a nap for one hour and played with Brooke and I.
Caleb and Poppa

We went to breakfast on Saturday at "Al's Breakfast". It really is this small. You stand behind the people eating waiting for a seat to open. Caleb had a Mickey Mouse pancake.
