Caleb


I wanted to get down a couple of the things that Caleb has been saying lately before I forget them. He's at that stage of talking that what he says doesn't make sense half the time or sound exactly like it should and I love to listen to what's going to come out of his mouth because you honestly never know.

Over Easter last weekend when the older two boys were gone Caleb and I made cupcakes. He was so excited to bake them..so much so that when they came out he immediately started trying to eat one without icing or anything. The following days he kept asking to eat another. Guess he can't get cupcake out though because when he would ask for a cupcake he would say "buttfake"...David and I got endless laughs out of it over the weekend.

Then he was sitting at the counter the other day and I kissed and hugged him and asked him if he knew how much I loved him. He said how much and I told him I loved him all the way up farther than the moon and back. He sat for a second and then looked at me and said "but I fall" :) I love this little boy...he's just so adorable!

Thank you all for your uplifting comments yesterday. I'd like to say that they all worked wondered and I had a wonderful day but that wasn't the case. Yesterday still sucked and my nerves are still shot. I'm extremely stressed and tired and just plain worn out but that's about par for the course right now. I'm hoping for a nice weekend! If you wouldn't mind I'd like to ask for you to say a prayer for my family. Alot of you have heard me talk about my husband,David and the fact that he is a HVAC service tech and has been for almost 20 years now. The HVAC service business is extremely slow right now so much so that they haven't had a single call in three days. He's with a company that says they are going to ride it out and not do any layoffs or close down but it still scares me. He's been out trying to get some work on his own but things are still tough and it worries me that business won't come back soon. Hoping for lots of calls to come in soon!!

Don't you just love it when they're learning how to talk! They say the cutest things! It's funny how at that age a lot of people have no clue what they are saying, but we as their Mommies are able to understand them perfectly!

I will pray for your Hubby! I am totally there with you when it comes to understand what work is like right now in the trades. A long time ago my husband started praying the prayer that if God would provide the work, we would provide the will. We have had our share of slow times, but God has always been so faithful!

Isn't blogging perfect for keeping a scrapbook! I wish I would have started mine sooner. I hope that all the kids start to feeling better soon, really not fun at all when they are sick and hoping that the layoff bug steers clear of your house! Take care

Caleb is adorable! I can't wait for Isaac to start trying to talk more. He calls muffins "fuffins":)

I will definitely be praying for you and your family during this stressful time.

So cute!!! I'm sorry about your day yesterday. I've had days like that and I only have two kiddos. You are a wonderful mommy! And even on bad days your kiddos know you love them!

My sister and her husband have a lot of the same financial worries as you right now (he is a home builder and no one is building new homes in our area right now or even doing any remodeling.) I'm really feeling for you during this uncertain time of work for your husband!

Keri said...

Kids, they say the darnest things, don't they? With all the talk of baking and icing, I sure could use a 'buttfake' myself. Good stuff!
