A Pearl Hat

Sometimes, in the morning, when I'm too tired to open my eyes and Caleb's too restless to lay in bed with me and wait for me to wake up, he'll open up my jewelry box (which is right next to the bed) and see what he can find to play with.

Tuesday morning he found himself a new hat. It was so darn cute that I had to grab my camera (also right next to the bed -- I wasn't that awake). The flash blinded him (hence the squinty eyes) and he quickly took his "hat" off so I'd quit blinding him.

But I love the way the necklaces make his hair stick straight up.

Today, after we'd been awake for a bit, Caleb and I headed back downstairs to take a shower. I got sidetracked for a moment, and next thing I know, Caleb's sporting his old friend, the pearl necklace.

Pearls are useful for other things besides hats. Such as...leg wrappers?

Leg wrappers make a STRONG MAN!

As well as a cute boy.

During his strong man routine, Caleb kept saying "one more picture," so of course I obliged. When he was finally finished posing, he decided it was Mommy's turn to have her picture taken. I let him have the camera.

"Mommy, hat," he said, pointing at the necklace now lying on the floor between us. So I put it on my head and he began taking my picture. Several of them actually turned out really well framed. But since I had yet to shower, you get to see Nana's favorite one instead of one that looks like someone who knew what they were doing took the picture.

And on an unrelated note, besides the fact that the picture is also from today, Caleb loves to climb. Climb and jump. He'll climb up onto anything he can and I try to refrain from stopping him, only dishing out a few "Be careful"s every now and again.

Yep. Caleb's getting fun. Probably my favorite age for fun. I love the strong man.

And Brandon's not weak either

(See the way I did that...)

Cute pictures. Caleb is getting so big, and don't worry I show pictures of you guys to Naomi all the time and she still remembers who you are. We miss you.
