Caelan is such a happy an active little guy...a real boy. He loves to figure out how toys work and will sit for quite some time with one object. Caelan is on the verge of walking on his own, but seems to be quite cautious with respect to taking that first step. He loves to laugh and would eat all day long if I let him. His favorite foods are peas and grapes, or whatever Shaylah is eating at the time. Caelan probably weighs about 20 pounds. He still wakes up once in the middle of the night, but loves to have a good long nap in the day and falls asleep easily. He is definitely a Momma's boy and prefers to be with me at all times.
It has been a while since I have given a more detailed update on the babies. Ashlyn has had quite a year! She no longer has any feeding issues and has a great appetite for most things. Her favorite foods are cheese and pasta, but she will gladly eat her frutis and vegetables too. Ashlyn is pulling up to stand at the furniture, crawling all over the house and especially loves to practice climbing the stairs. She cries when she has to come out of the bathtub and is the most stubborn of all the kids. She sleeps through the night and has a wonderful 3 hour nap in the middle of the day. She is sweet and gentle and seems to be the favorite of most of her relatives...I think because she is still so little. She hasn't been weighed in a while, but I am guessing she is still under 17 pounds (wearing the clothes that Shaylah wore at 6 months of age).
Last week we took a visit to Great Gran's house for lunch. What fun we had! Since we will be spending Chrsitmas with Johnny's side of the family, we decided it would be fun to open a few Christmas presents so that Great Gran and Auntie Joan could watch.
