Ever since Caleb was born, he has been a loud baby. He cries loud. He talks loud. Heâ€™s just loud, period. Heâ€™ll fit in well with the rest of our family. He must have picked it up from our families, cause Yvonne and I certainly arenâ€™t loud.
Caleb has been talking bunches. Well heâ€™s always made lots of talking sounds, most of which we can not understand. But heâ€™s developed a new favorite word/sound. And itâ€™s not â€œma maâ€ or â€œda daâ€ which he likes saying both. Itâ€™s a sound that sounds like â€œuuh!â€ or something like that. I donâ€™t know whatâ€™s the best way to spell, so maybe you can tell me. This sound can mostly be interpreted as â€œgive meâ€ or â€œI want thatâ€ or it could even mean â€œget me out of hereâ€ or â€œhelp me.â€ In this case below, it means â€œgive meâ€.
Ever since Caleb started walking, heâ€™s pretty much stopped crawling. And when heâ€™s stopped crawling, heâ€™s pretty much stop climbing. He even doesnâ€™t like to climb up and down stairs anymore. Heâ€™ll eventually do so, just cause he wants to get somewhere. But lots of time if mommy or daddy are around, heâ€™ll grunt his â€œuuhâ€ sound and ask to be picked up. Itâ€™s very cute, but if youâ€™re going to be mobile, be mobile up and down the stairs as well. 2 stairs ainâ€™t going to hurt you, son. Of course if you have something he really wants, there is no stopping him. Neither heights, nor depths can stop him from getting what he wants.
Caleb likes his toys. He especially likes his new ones. Take them away when heâ€™s not finished with them yet, and heâ€™ll give you that â€œuuhâ€ sound. For his birthday we had bought him a toy lawn mower that blows bubbles. He likes bubbles. He likes to walk. Heâ€™s going to love this toy! Well he did love it. Problem is is that it didnâ€™t blow bubbles. If adults couldnâ€™t get this toy to blow bubbles, how does anyone expect a baby to make it blow bubbles? So we decided to return it and get another lawn mower. This pops balls. Again he loves it. All he needs is something to walk with.
