Continuing to Sign and a Date Night



Caleb continues to amaze me with how quick he is picking up signing. He signed 'dog' the other day, which is probably one of the hardest signs to date. He really loves signing. He will sit on the floor in front of me and sign a whole bunch of different words and wait for me to say what he is signing. It's our new game. I have thought of a couple ideas of some possible things I could make at home to help him start learning even more cognitively-so I will post pictures soon of that once I get them made.

He also is getting a lot better with crawling, seems a lot more coordinated! AND FAST!

I had posted awhile back that I would post the story done on our local news station. Well the cd I got with the story on it consists of numerous files and not just one file, so a friend of ours Crissy Clutter, is working on getting it put into one file. She is very busy right now, so she let me know today that she hopes to have it for us sometime after Easter. Thanks Crissy!

Brian and I were able to go out for the first night in a VERY LONG time the other night. We had sooooo much fun. It was so nice to have a date night. My mom and dad babysat and did great and had so much fun they encouraged us to go out again soon. Brian and I might take them up on that offer and go out for our anniversary this coming Monday. I had a blast Brian, I love you very much!


I also would like to thank everyone for the prayers for my Mom when she was in the hospital. She is home now, her sugar is stabilizing. Thank you all for your prayers!

God Bless you all!!

God Bless Caleb!!

Sarah, Our family follows Caleb's progress and we're so happy that he's doing well. I wanted to recommend a signing tape that is WONDERFUL, don't know if you know about it. http://www.signingtime.com/?gclid=CNm2so-N05kCFR1N5Qod3zRaZA It's called Signing Time and they are simply great. I think Caleb would love them! Keep up the good work Caleb...and Mom & Dad!

Go Caleb! Signing is fun. I learned some sign language when I was little. Now I'm learning the signs for "YMCA". I'll get them down soon. For now I just shake my arms.

Caleb..You have a Daddy that is sooooo proud of you! I met him at the AT&T store at st clairsville mall(he did sell me a new phone too). Whenever he mentions your name he just beams! I haven't met your Mom only through this blog,but I can tell she is very proud of you too. You have stolen the hearts of many including me. I wish you the very best. Keep up your signing and using the walker...then Mom and Dad will have to chase you all over the house!!!

Hi There Guys!
Caleb is cute as ever and looking way too BIG! Why do these guys have to grow up so fast? But if you're like me, bigger is better healthwise:). It's mixed emotions.
Thought of you as I read baby Moriah's blog about her having a fungus in her lungs. Do you read them? I found her through Max's site.
So glad to see all the great things Caleb's doing. He's amazing!

Love from MO,
Corrie
