Candy Monster

When we went up to my mom's house to take her to the airport (on 11/5), she gave us this big tupperware full of candy. The next day, it was all Caleb played with all morning long. The lid had these snap on handles that were fun to put on and take off. Then there was the joy of dumping out the entire thing of candy only to put it away again. Candy is also good for pouring from one container to another. Not to mention the fun involved with unwrapping candy and throwing candy and seeing how many pieces we could make Mommy eat before she wanted to throw up. Yes, good times.

So finally, after an entire morning of this, I pulled out the camera to take some pictures. Caleb immediately gave me his cheesy smile.

Then he decided to start posing for me. He'd lean on his arm and tilt his head and wait for me to take a picture. After each shot, he'd say "nice," then give me a new pose. It was so hilarious!

The above photo is in a different spot in our living room a little later as Caleb continued to model for me.

Below is his "oh, cute" face. When he first started making this face, we thought something was wrong. But then Brandon realized this is the same face that we make at Caleb whenever he does something cute and now he's started to copy us.

Caleb only ever threw the Snickers bars. He never once threw a Reese's, but I think he eventually threw every single Snickers.

The Reese's were easy to unwrap. Caleb never wanted to eat them though. Just unwrap candy after candy and give it to Mommy to eat.

I was glad when Alana came over to assume my candy eating responsibilities. (Though after one taste she would throw the candy on the floor. Apparently she had no qualms about throwing Reese's.)

At least Caleb's been getting some good practice sharing with all this candy around.
