We had a great weekend (besides that Auburn game)! The weather finally started to feel like fall on Friday afternoon, and we've had sunny skies and cool air. It's been so nice, and we've been trying to make the most of it. Caleb and I went to a Halloween party on Friday. Although it was cooler than it has been, it was still not nearly cool enough for the heavy costume I had for him. What was I thinking when I bought a costume that feels like a heavy coat?? Oh well, it didn't matter a bit. Ashley made him a Halloween shirt and he was just as cute in it.

Here is our attempt at a group picture :)

Tami and Rykar -
Saturday morning Wes played golf, and Caleb and I met some friends and went to a fall festival. They had goats, a pony and horses. Caleb LOVED the animals! We went on a hayride and I took lots of pictures of Cabub and his buddies in the pumpkin patch. (It was Seaside Stables for anyone interested and everything we did was free.)
He could have stayed right there all day! He loved the horses and goats!

With his buddies, Rykar & Henry.

After that, we met Wes and went to a birthday party at Pump It Up. They have LOTS of inflateables. Caleb really wished he could have kept up with the other kids! He did get to go down the slide and jumped around a little. He was just happy staring at the disco ball.

I guess all that fun has worn him out. He woke up at 2:00 Sunday morning crying (which he hasn't done in months) and was up about an hour. His voice sounded kind of hoarse, and had a little cough. We stayed home and didn't go to church :(, but now he's sounding okay and seems like he feels fine - who knows? We took it easy and stayed inside all day. Hopefully he'll be back to 100% today. Hope you had a great weekend too!

First Haircut

Caleb got a new 'do today to go with his the four new teeth he's been cutting lately. Our sweet friend, Leah, trimmed his hair this afternoon. She was very patient with us - he kept turning his head wondering what she was doing and wondering about those scissors in her hands. He was beginnig to look a little scruffy. I love it!! I could eat him up! He looks like somebody loves him again!! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you Leah!! Not sure what to think about this?!? Ta Da! The finished look!
This was his hair this morning...
And here he is this afternoon...

9 Months Old

Caleb went for his 9 month checkup on Wednesday. I can't get over how much he is changing lately. It blows my mind! He took his first steps a couple of weeks ago (9/17 to be exact). I can tell he is getting braver everyday. He is losing interest in baby food and wants to eat whatever we are eating. He weighs 19 lbs. 8 oz. (almost the 50th percentile) and is 27 1/2" long (the 25th percentile). His hair has taken off and has a mind of its own. A nice lady at Target told me yesterday he looked like he'd stuck his finger in a light socket (thanks a lot) and I'd just tamed it before we left the house. I don't have any pictures that really do it justice, but I will be sure to capture it soon :). A few new pictures...
