Caleb was Dumbo for Halloween! He was so adorable in his outfit, but he didn't really like it. He couldn't bend over to pick anything up and if he fell down while he was walking he couldn't stand back up! Poor guy.

This afternoon we went to a Seminary "Harvest Festival" where you could carve pumpkins, paint pumpkins and eat good food. Caleb wore his pumpkin hat from Ingrid Reese and played with his first pumpkin (he actually was calling it a ball).
He said "football" today and has been saying "bye bye" as well.

This weekend, while Erik and the guys were backpacking in the frigid weather, Caleb and I spent the afternoon with Linnea and Gwen. Here we are at a farm, looking at the pumpkins. We could not get both kids to look at the camera...this is the best we could do! We were able to see a bunch of animals too. Caleb enjoys looking at animlas in books, however, he got scared when the horse moved and the rooster crowed!

Here is Caleb sporting a thrift store special from Uncle Colby. Colby babysits on Tuesdays, so we made sure he was wearing this for him today. (Tony and Wendy, you can borrow this sweatshirt for your little one!) I cannot get over how big he looks in these pictures.
Caleb has had a pretty bad cough, runny nose and congested chest the last few days, but how would you ever be able to tell with that smile? It has caused him to wake up several times during the night, which has been draining on Erik and I. We are hoping that once he gets over this that he will go back to his normal sleeping routine.
He is still a lot of fun and learning so much everyday. Yesterday he was saying "shoes" over and over again as Erik was getting him dressed in the morning. He knows what the dog and the cow say, and tonight he finally figured out how to use the shape sorter. Oh yeah, and he loves to hide behind his hands now too! It is so amazing to watch this little person figure everything out for the first time. Kids are amazing!

One of the words Caleb knows right now is "bottle." We have resorted to spelling this word when we are getting his bottle ready otherwise he would say it over and over and get himself all upset. I finally caught it on tape, so here is a little video of our little talker. (click on the link below) He is slowly beginning to "communicate" with us either by signs or words and it is already making things much easier.
