Videos from this Week

Here's Caleb and Brynn talking. Caleb is obviously going down to Brynn's level. He likes to make the sounds she does.

Here's Caleb leading some music he was singing:

Songs and Clapping

Since we've had such warm weather out here Caleb loves to go outside with his construction vehicles, sit in this spot and push dirt around.


Brynn learned to clap her hands. I looked back to when Caleb first clapped his hands and it was also at 9 months. I guess baby's start clapping then.

Caleb is really starting to learn songs. In addition to church songs, here's a few more.
Last Saturday Derrick and I turned on a Psych episode while Caleb was awake, that is the first time we've done that and Caleb picked up the theme song. Listen closely:

Fun times

Bynn had her 9 month doctor visit this month and she keeps going down on the weight charts. She went from 48th percentile at 6 months to 14th! Because she does eat so well the doctor didn't seem concerned. I might be adding in some doughnuts to her diet though, haha.

Caleb is really into Bob the Builder right now. He will put on his construction hat and ask to watch it. It's pretty cute.

Here's sweet Brynn getting a little daddy time in:

We also went to the aquarium this week to see the new attraction: sea otters. Unfortunately they were sleeping the whole time. Good thing we have year passes or I would be really disappointed. At the end they were giving out otter pops, what a cute idea!

Pictures and Playing


Caleb has gotten into taking pictures. I am constantly deleting pictures from my camera. Mostly they are of his fingers over the lens but here are two that actually showed something.


Also, a big day has come to our house: Brynn and sit and play by herself. Here she is playing with some toys. It actually allows me to get some things done while she is awake.

Caleb has said a few funny things lately:
1. Derrick's work provides dinner every night for the employees. If it doesn't get eaten, it gets thrown away so Derrick brings food almost every night. Once when Caleb woke up from a nap I told him daddy was at work. Caleb said, "Daddy go to work to get food." We think Caleb really thinks that is why Derrick goes to work.
2. Continuing with the food from work thing, once I asked Caleb what he wanted for dinner. He said he wanted pizza. I told him we didn't have pizza and Caleb responded, "Call daddy, he get some from work."
3. Caleb was watching the garbage truck gather the trash. A neighbor was bringing down her trash as the garbage truck was leaving our culdesak. Caleb yelled out, "Garbage truck come back! There's one more!"
4. I gave Brynn a toy measuring tape to play with on the floor. The next time I look over Caleb has the measuring tape and I ask him if he took it from Brynn. He said, "I give her octopus." Sure enough he did replace the toy he took. At least he's considerate when he wants a toy she's playing with.
5. We were trying to change Caleb's diaper and put on his pj's. He was more wiggly than normal (if that can be possible). We asked him if he could hold still and he responded, so sincerely, "I can't do it." I don't think there could be a truer statement.

On the Brynn front, she is sitting completely without support. She always has to be doing something, whether it is simply watching something interesting, playing with a toy, eating paper or trying to get her hands on whatever I'm working on. She isn't crawling yet but she sure wants to, it's in her eyes.
