lunch date

Our family all got together for a little lunch date at our favorite place... the American Legion. Caleb like always was the center of attention in this family. Gigi was holding him most of the day but Grandpa and Grandma Schoeny finally got there hands on him.
Look at those thunder thighs. 
Grandpa put his hat on Caleb and boy did he LOVE it!
He looks like dumbo.
My favorite photo of grandma and Caleb.

The Scary Shots

Vaccination were finally started for our little man. After many hours of research we decided to start them later then most babies and to make them more staggered.  The norm first round of shots are 1 oral and 6 shots... eeek, no thank you! Caleb was given 1 oral and 2 shots. Because he does not get as many at each appointment we are going every month to get them done instead of every two months. 

I was more than thankful that Gable was with us for this appointment. I can't stomach to see Caleb in pain or cry (yes daddy that is why he is so spoiled), I was fidgeting like crazy. The doctor would ask me questions and I was in a complete daze.

Caleb was weighed when got the doctors office and YES our for month old weighs 17 pounds and 7 ounces. I promise I am not over feeding him at all, I was just blessed with an extremely solid boy! After he gets weighed the measure his head, and his height.

Caleb when is the best mood that day and was completely obsessed with the paper that your lay on.

Our doctor was so impressed with how skilled Caleb is (I am raising a genius), she told us that he is doing things that most babies aren't doing till they are six months. After his shots he cried a little but daddy gave him a bottle and calmed him right down.
I am so thankful that he had no bad reaction to the vaccinations. No fever, no change of appetite (shocker)! 

6 years..... WHAT!

I can't believe that we have just celebrated our six year wedding anniversary. Time has flown by so quickly .. we have traveled to so many wonderful places, have bought our starter home, bought our dream home, adopted two of the cutest kitty's in the world and had the most adorable little boy!!! Gable is my true soul mate and I thank the LORD everyday that I met him so young.

To kick off our anniversary celebration we went to see our favorite Bulls get there butts kicked (Lets just pray that next year they win a couple of more games). Caleb was spending the night at his grandpa and grandma schoeny's so we could get a full night of sleep.

On the anniversary day Gable booked us a brew tour at Cigar City. I have been on a few brew tours and this was one of the best. 

 He is so handsome!
 You know these glasses are so sexy.
 After the brew tour we had another beer at the bar. I think we were there for two hours just sitting, giggling and chatting. I love how smitten I am with him still!
 We went and had a really late lunch out Outback. Gable thought it would be better to do an earlier meal so then we could spend time with Caleb and celebrate the rest of the day as a family of three.
 He is so handsome, my heart melts every time he smiles!

So that was how we celebrated our grand six year anniversary. It was a perfect weekend with my love"s"!

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat smell my feet.... I tried so hard to get Caleb to say that but I was sadly disappointed when he wouldn't. I guess I am asking a lot from a baby that can't even sit up on his own. Halloween this year was simple fun. Our first year in the new house, which ment first year ever having trick or treaters, and it was Caleb's first Halloween. 

The morning was spent singing spooky songs off of pandora, Caleb loved it!And putting the final touches of his costume together. 

I may have over done the decor with all of my candles but when it was dark outside every parent said it looked amazing! Martha Stewart... watch out!

Caleb was a Fox News report. He looked to dapper in his bow tie.

After being in a bow tie for awhile we changed him back into his Halloween outfit. And became security at the bowl... one candy per kid!

Halloween was a blast! Caleb went to bed around 8ish and we said outside chatting with our neighbors till about 10pm. Our first year was a success, but next year I might need to buy one more bag of candy.
