Caleb {11 Months Old}

Caleb turned 11 months old last week. We still can’t believe he is almost a year old. The countdown is on and that means we have to start planning his first birthday party! Yay!

Here are a few Caleb highlights from the past month:

  • Caleb has finally gotten the hang of eating. He used to pick and play at his food, but now when he sits in his high chair, he comes to eat. He is loving quesadillas, blueberries, oatmeal, yogurt, and watermelon.
  • Caleb loves to dance. If there is music on, he will nod his head and groove to the music.
  • Caleb loves playing “peek-a-boo.” Sometimes we will spy on him while he is in his crib, with the monitor, and he will be playing peek-a-boo with himself. He puts his blanket over his face and pulls it down and laughs. He is such a fun kid!

  • Caleb loves helping in the kitchen. He plays with tupperware, pots, pans, spatulas, whisks, and any other kitchen gadget he can get his hands on. He loves watching mama pull cookies out of the oven. Too bad he doesn’t get to sample them:( Someday!
  • Caleb’s vocabulary is growing. He can now say: dad, mama, dog, hi, bye, I love you, and blueberry.

  • Caleb got his first haircut. He is such a handsome boy!
  • Caleb can stand up, but he isn’t walking yet.
  • He loves to drink out of his water bottle.

  • Caleb loves to wrestle his big stuffed elephant. If you say, “get the elephant,” he will crawl over to the elephant and attack. He buries his face in the elephant and jumps on him.
  • He loves playing with other kids, especially his cousins.
  • Caleb loves crawling over everything. He will go out of his way to find something to crawl over. He doesn’t like a clear path.

  • Caleb went to Oregon, his fourth trip on a plane. He loves traveling. When we were in Oregon, Sandy and Paul’s daughter, Abby, babysat Caleb. They had so much fun! Abby took the black and white pictures of Caleb in this post. We love them! She is beyond talented. Thank you Abby!
  • Caleb discovered stars in Oregon and now if we go outside on a clear night, he points and talks to the stars.

Happy 11 Months Caleb! We love you!

  1. I love the way you describe sweet Caleb. You take me back to the days when my boys were really baby boys. I miss that time, it is special enjoy! (my babies will be 37 and 24 on Sept 22. 13 yrs and 8 hours apart) No grandchildren so this is why I enjoy your posts of Caleb so much. Such a sweet sweet smile. I love your blog, very interesting and always a special touch to personalize, not just “here’s a recipe”, then a short sentence on how it was discovered. You make your blog read as if you are sending an email to a close friend. For this I thank you!! Okay.. I’m rattled enough for today. I just don’t respond to posts that often, but wanted you to know how very special all three of you are to my days. Thank you!!! Would love to just send you all a big grandmother style {{{{{HUG}}}} LOL.. BYEEEE

  3. Hi Maria,
    So funny Marianne response number one wrote what she wrote, I read your blog this morning and the same kind of thoughts crossed my mind about it taking me back to when my kids were babies…my girls are now 26 and 19, no grandchildren for me yet either. It’s so wonderful you are recording this information for Caleb and sharing it with everyone . The years pass by so quickly, the liitle ones grow up in a blink of an eye. Enjoy every moment and every little thing your beautiful baby boy does! You are making precious moments that will last a lifetime. You will all enjoy looking back on these blogs as he grows up.
