Daddy's Chair

Cale loves to play in "Daddy's chair" as he calls it. He was so funny on this night because he was starting to get sleepy and that is when he often gets silly. He was testing us because we don't let him stand in the chair, but he kept doing it because Bryan would pull his feet and make him fall and he thought it was a game :)

Playin Outside

With our weather so up-and-down, Cale loves the afternoons when we get to go outside! That is his all-time favorite place to be. There are many days that I cannot even go inside when we get home because a certain little monster wants to play. I love it though! I have been able to take him to the park a couple of times in the last few weeks. He has learned how to slide and thinks that he is big stuff! I can't wait for summer to get here so that we can go more often.

Here are a few pics of Cale and Bryan playing on the porch...

Potty Time!

Cale has been showing some interest in the potty. Mostly by telling us "pee-pee" when he has wet his diaper. So I decided that it might be a good time to introduce him to the potty. He know what the potty is because goodness knows that I can't go to the bathroom by myself! He seemed really excited about it! We sat him on it twice today and he sat there saying "pee-pee" but he never actually peed. I hope that I can use the next few weeks to get him used to the potty. Then I am going to try the 3-5 day potty training method during spring break and see what happens. If it works, great. If it doesn't I am not going to fret over it. He is only 19 months and I had originally planned to potty train over the summer. But since he is showing interest, I am going to try it and see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Showing off

Cale was up this morning at 6:00! Bright and early! Needless to say we knew that he would be ready for a nap about 10:30, so we decided that it would be best to stay home from church so that he could go down for a nap. He is too busy at church and wont nap in the nursery. And making it 2 hours past nap time without becoming a pill is impossible! So about 10:45 he was ready for a nap. He fussed a little, but before long he was out. Within an hour he woke up. I knew that an hour was not enough sleep, so I quickly went in a began rocking him. It took a few minutes but then he was out again.

At about 2:30 I had to make a quick Target trip. I really thought he would be up by then so we could all go, but he wasn't so I left him at home with Daddy. It was really nice to go and not be rushed or distracted though. While I was there I found Cale some croc's. I have been wanting to get him a pair but can never find them in his size. When I got home I tried them on him to make sure they fit. I think that he liked them because he would not take them off. Even when I cleaned him up and changed him into clean pjs (yes he had been in his pjs all day!) he made me put them back on! Too funny :)

Here he is showing off his girl scout cookie. I asked him to come to me so I could try on his shoes and he comes with the cookie pack in one hand and a thin mint in the other! What a rotten tail!

His new shoes!

Saying "cheese"

Daddy's Boy

Cale is not a Daddy's boy or a Moma's boy. He is both. It just depends on the day or the hour. This day he was definitely a Daddy's boy! Here he is wearing Bryan's shorts. He was so proud!

Sorry they are so blurry. My setting on the camera got changed and I didn't realize it.
