Caleb really wanted to paint this morning, and who am I to deny him? But he forget to mention that he wanted to paint himself and not so much the paper laid before him. After putting the paint on his hands he rubbed them together and put it in his hair. Needless to say bath time followed painting time.

To celebrate Valentine's Day Cory and I would usually go out the night before to avoid the crowds. This year we did something different. We didn't want to go out, we wanted to stay in. Cory brought home Red Pepper (yummy) and we just ate dinner together after we put Caleb to bed and then we watched a movie - Sleepless in Seatle.
For gifts, Cory bought me this beautiful Willow Tree figurine, (I cried) and I gave Cory this bed that I refinished.

Cory opted to "not sit" and read TIME magazine as we waited for Dr. Walker to give us the green light to go into the ultrasound room. We saw our baby for the first time today. Well, it didn't really look like a baby to us, but I am only seven weeks.

Last night Caleb had his first "accident."
Every time I go to Caleb's Dr. for shots or an appointment I made, the nurses ask with out fail whether Caleb has had an "accident." I always say "no." with a tinge of pride, like this fact somehow earns me the title of Awesome Good Mommy. Well, now I have to say "Yes, he has had an accident."
Caleb was playing in the entry way of my parents house with their Chocolate Lab. The best way to describe Dutchess is a "Bull in a China closet." She is really sweet and very obedient but she doesn't know her own strength especially when she's excited. Caleb would lay on Dutchess for a few seconds and then get up and run around laughing and then come back to repeat the same thing over and over. Cory stood over the two of them to make sure Caleb didn't get hurt. Well, the dog jumped up as Caleb lay on her and Caleb fell back into an antique table in the entry way and split the back of his head open. At first we just thought he got hurt but soon the blood was visible and we knew it was more serious than a bump. My mom is a nurse (thank goodness we were at her house) and she examined him and said she thought he needed at least two stitches maybe three. Then as were about to go to the ER to wait forever to be seen, my dad said why don't we just put super glue in it. I thought he was joking and so did Cory. But he wasn't. then my mom said that when she worked in the ER surgeons often used super glue to minimize scaring. Cory and I decided well, okay. Super glue it is. Caleb was a champ patient, my mom was in charge of the super glue part, my dad provided light and his professional opinion during the procedure and Cory and I kept Caleb distracted with popcorn and marshmallows. It was a success!

When Cory was growing up he loved this story read to him before bed. As he grew older he then read it to his sisters Alison and Sara before they went to bed. The book in the picture is the very same book his mom turned the pages and read the words to Cory when he was Caleb's age. And the very same book Cory read to Alison and Sara. Now at Caleb's bedtime Cory reads it to Caleb and the tradition continues.
