Teeth and a Trip to the Beach

That's right! Caleb has not one, but two teeth. About 2 weekends ago, Caleb came home from daycare ill as could be on Friday. When I conducted my almost daily check for a tooth, I found one tooth that appeared to be trying to break through. The next day when I pulled down his lip to take a look, I realized there were 2. He has been ill off and on ever since but seems to be doing better with it all.

This past weekend we went to Myrtle Beach just to get away. We could not leave until after Austin's T-ball game Saturday morning. He got to play first base and got an out but became frustrated when he had to move to a different position the next inning. He definitely likes the action. Below is a video from the weekend before. I think it is the longest at bat in T-ball history! Just kidding, but I think me videoing him was definitely a distraction.

After the game, we went to Biscuitville before hitting the road. Insert the horror music and Dun, Dun, Dun expression here. While sitting with the tray in front of him (way to go mom and dad), Caleb proceeded to put his fingers in the piping hot grits. Yes, that lead to a screaming baby. I remained fairly calm and wiped the grits off and whisked him to the bathroom. He was tired anyway so things just got worse. Finally we were on the road with screaming baby and irritated 4 year old in tow! The area on his finger did blister up but he is doing well and seems like it does not bother him.

The ride always seems long when kids don't sleep the whole way! We made it though and Austin immediately went to the water slides at our hotel. He had a great time all weekend in the water park area and only walked down to the beach one time. Caleb had a good time in the baby pool and floating in the lazy river. Saturday night we went to play putt putt. Dad won of course but Austin and Mom had several hole-in-ones each! Austin is actually very good. Sunday we spent the day at the pool and then went for a nice dinner. Yesterday was shopping day and then returning home.

Austin has moved up into the Pre-K classroom at school. He has tolerated the transition much better than we had anticipated. He is ready for the challenge and is starting to like his new class more every day. Caleb is eating food galore and wants someone to help him pull to stand instead of sitting still. He will pull up and jump all around. He just isn't strong enough to pull up by himself yet. He wakes up every morning with a smile on his face and is only waking up 1 time a night if even that now.

Well, I am off to make bottles and prepare things for tomorrow. It is a never ending circus around here!! Until next time......
