New Shoes & New Stages....







Have you ever seen a pair of Nike tennis shoes look any cuter? Caleb is already in a size 6.5- his new tennis shoes seem so big for his little body :) He is growing, no doubting that!


What else is new in Caleb's world? Well, he no longer takes his bottle. That's right! He is a sippy cup baby now. This both makes me happy and sad. Happy because he transitioned so easy from his bottle and because I know in the long run this is a good thing. Sad because he no longer takes a bottle which means.....he is growing up- reality, huh?

He is really beginning to pick up on a few words and meanings. Though he can't vocalize all that many words yet, he can identify certain objects in books- dog, cat, ball, bird, etc. and can also identify a few colors as well. He also has began to say "uh-oh" when he drops something and puts his hands up as if to say "I don't know" or "Where did it go?" when he hides his toy.....so cute! He also can identify most of his facial features, but his favorite part to show you is his belly- he might try to find yours too :) Okay, I better stop now- I could go on and on. We are just so proud of him!

This weekend Papaw and Granna Caldwell stopped by to visit and Aunt Micah and her friend as well. He had a great time playing with them and it was great to have them here. Chad and Karen Bowman, our friends from Lexington also came down for a visit. It was good to catch up with them and to talk with them about their upcoming court date for their precious daughter Natalie. We were able to show them some of our video from Ethiopia (their daughter was on it :) and also answer a few general questions about the trip. Please keep them in your prayers- their court date is March 17th. As you can imagine, they are quite excited and anxious to meet their new daughter! We have already had the pleasure of meeting her- she is so sweet.

Well, that is all for now! At the end of this week, Caleb will have been home for 2 months!
