Elmo and Strawberries…

We took Caleb to see “Elmo Makes Music”  last Friday.  It was Caleb’s birthday present from Daddy.  He really enjoyed it.  He sat mesmerized the whole show.  He didn’t even move around during the 15 minute intermission.  He just waited patiently for Elmo to return to the stage.  I thought Joshua would fall asleep, but he also enjoyed the show.  He liked all the flashing lights.

The next morning Papa took the cousins strawberry picking.  Caleb loves strawberries!  He enjoyed filling up his container.

Survivor Baby

Joshua is now 3 1/2 weeks old, and it has been about that long since we updated the blog… oh how time flies.  He has survived Caleb…so far.  His head wasn’t too hurt when Caleb ran one of his cars into it.  He didn’t spit up too much when Caleb helped turbo charge his travel swing.  I think he kind of enjoyed the ice cream, little pieces of goldfish, and juice that Caleb tried to sneak to him.  He can still move his lower extremities after Caleb stepped on his bottom.  The numerous hugs and kisses that Caleb gives him must somehow balance things out in the end.

Joshua has already had quite a series of adventures. He has been for a ride on his brother’s back, gone for a train ride, and set the Guinness World record for most poopy diapers in the first month of life… and it hasn’t even been a full month yet. He even got to do a little role playing as baby Tron. (Ok, actually it was the billi-light, but still, check out the cool picture.)

Caleb has been equally busy, keeping us on our toes. He has had to find new ways of drawing mom and dad’s attention away from the new distraction. He loves to climb on anything, including his little brother. He is learning new words all the time and will often repeat words we didn’t know he could say out of the blue. Perhaps his cutest vocalization is when he points at Joshua and says “bey-bey” in mock guttural tones.

Caleb has already run through two sets of batteries for his Elmo Live. Caleb makes sure that Elmo is talking as he goes about his regular activities. While dad has been off for his paternity leave, Caleb has spent a lot of time with him tending to their makeshift dam in the backyard creek. Caleb got lots of toys for Christmas… I think we need to call off Christmas for the next few years. The house is filling up.

Well, I guess I should draw this to a close. Don’t forget to leave us some comments! Perhaps they will motivate us to get some more video up on the blog.
