Going to Grandma's

Today Caleb and I were hanging out and he said,"want bouncy ball." I said, "We don't have a bouncy ball." Then he remembered that we had played with one while we were at Grandma Sheen's house. He said,"It's at Grandma's house. I go get it." He started walking towards the door. I said, "Bye have a good trip!" (He likes to pretend he is going to work and will put on shoes, take a bag, and drag it to the door as he says bye, so I figured it was going to be like that.) Then he walked over to the door, opened it and started walking down the stairs towards the garage. And that is how we found out that he can open doors. So, after I got over my surprise, I went running after him and told him that he would have to go on an airplane to get to grandma's. :( It was sweet and sad at the same time.

Caleb's Language

So Caleb's language has really taken off in the last couple of weeks. I hadn't really realized it until we returned home from a 3 week trip and Travis was shocked by all the things Caleb could say. We try to figure out what has caused this increase in language and I have a couple of theories. 1. He just spent the last 3 weeks with all of his older cousins and picked up on their language. 2. He just has a bunch of synapses that are beginning to fire in his brain. 3. It is because I took so much DHA when I was pregnant/ nursing. :) Just kidding about the last one.
But today, I was shocked by what he said. He came up and handed me his bottle and said, "I need more drinking water." I am totally not kidding. "Drinking water?" Where would he have possibly heard that phrase from. Bizarre thing number 2 that he said. He was sitting in the backseat and said,"Thursday, Friday, Saturday" like he was naming the days of the week. Now I KNOW I have not tried to teach him those yet. It's like these adult things coming out of this little boy's mouth. It's fun and exciting, though. You never know what you're going to get with him.
