First Food

We delayed starting Caleb on solid foods until after we returned from our trip to SC, and so he was 7-1/2 months old before he had his first taste of anything from a spoon. It's been quite a battle! He's tried rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, pears, applesauce, and bananas. So far, the only thing he's eaten more than a spoonful of is applesauce. The first picture is the "Before" pic from the first day. After I uploaded the pictures, I realized that he's wearing a different shirt in the "After" picture, so that must be from the second day! Oh well! It takes so long to upload pics on here that I'm not going to worry about it. You get the idea!

We enjoyed getting to see CJ and his oldest son, Cole. Sugar and the other kids weren't able to come, but Cole seems to be a great big brother! He and Caleb seemed to like each other a lot!

Mmm, that face tastes good!

Caleb and Kiddo

There were many people we would have liked to see during our visit to South Carolina, and we simply did not have time to see everyone. However, we were fortunate to be able to meet Lindsey for lunch. Joel was a big influence in her life when she was a teenager. He affectionately refers to her as "kiddo," and she calls him "adulto." to Lins, Caleb looks REALLY white! :)

Caleb had a ball playing with Lindsey's bracelets


Caleb with Uncle David

happy face with Aunt Abigail

Ooh...her hair is fun to play with!

Benjamin gets a ride on Uncle David

Like Caleb, Benjamin likes Joel's furry face!

having fun with great-grandma

impossible to get all the kids looking at the least no one's eyes were actually closed in this one!

Benjamin and Uncle David like the fish at the zoo!


I am just not good at making sure I take pictures! Sadly, I got very few pictures of Caleb with Linnea and Benjamin while we were visiting. :(
