House Fire

When I was 12 years old my family moved from Mesa, Arizona to North Dakota. My parents bought a house 5 miles outside of the small town of Bottineau. On Wednesday morning I got a call from my dad informing me that the house, the house he was still living in, had been ruined by […]

Living room makeover (Part 1 of ???)

When we first purchased our house about 2 1/2 years ago we needed some living room furniture. At the time we didn’t have a lot of money to spend of furniture. So being the bargain shopper that I am I found a few simple pieces of furniture that I liked at IKEA. Then I watched […]


Just a few new pictures of Caleb….

The Smart Trike

On Thursday Bobby got off of work nice and early. And it was a beautiful sunny day. He also brought a new toy home for Caleb. His first tricycle!!! We’d decided to spend some of our tax refund on this trike, however the plan was that I’d go pick it up at Toy’s R Us […]


A week ago I created a post about Caleb’s development in the area of sitting independently.  Since then I’ve been absolutely amazed at his growth. He went from sitting up alone briefly (maybe 30 seconds at the most) to sitting alone for quite awhile (a 10 minute stretch once today!) . He can balance himself […]

A dog and his boy

I’m pretty sure these two are going to be buddies: Up until about a month ago Caleb didn’t seem to realize that he shared a home with 2 dogs and a cat. Now that has definitely changed.  He loves our pets. Caleb is always watching the animals and when they get close enough he reaches […]

rice cereal

Caleb has never been a fan of “sitting on the outside.” When meal times roll around.. well, Caleb wants to be right there too. For months we’ve just brought Caleb into the midst with the help of the bumbo chair. He’d hang out in the bumbo, on the table, and we’d eat. Recently though, Caleb […]

Gimme! Gimme!

Caleb is a very curious little guy! He’s always looking for what he can get his hands on, and of course from there it goes right to his mouth. It’s fun watching him explore his surroundings, but at the same time I’ve had to learn to watch everything around him. A few pictures of the […]

Round and round they go…

Gosh, too bad we don’t have hardwood floors. [kaltura-widget uiconfid=”3174772″ entryid=”1_sl0ht7rp” width=”400″ height=”360″ addpermission=”” editpermission=”” /]


Caleb has begun briefly sitting on his own. He can now balance himself  with his hands.  Of course, I have to stay very close or he’ll just topple right over. This boy loves to sit though, and I definitely look forward to the day when he’ll be able to really sit alone. In the meantime, […]
