Valentines 2010

So, I've realized Valentines Day is very different when you have a baby. Saturday morning we went to Original Pancake House with baby in tow. By the way, their breakfast crepe is AMAZING! Then I made dinner with my brother, Trevor, and ate my Valentines dinner with Caleb on my lap, grabbing at all of the food. I think last year, I would've been bugged that James and I didn't get to go out alone, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Caleb was just as much my Valentine as James is, and I just love my little guy so so much!

Caleb is at such a fun age! He loves to squeal with delight, laugh, jabber, and he's just such a happy guy. He even usually wakes up with a big smile for mommy. I feel so lucky to be his mom, and to have such a wonderful husband that is an incredible father!

This was our Valentines gift to Caleb. He is such a hoot in it. He's a jumper all right! Even when I take him out, he continues to kick his legs.

I LOVE tivo, especially so I can record all of the Olympic events, and fast forward through the boring ones. I watched the pairs figure skating, and I'm amazed by their talent! I even watched "Cutting Edge" on Saturday night to get me pumped up for the Olympics. Did anyone else watch Apolo Ohno and JR barely get the silver and bronze medal. Good thing that Korean got greedy :) Oh and the Americans who won gold and bronze in the womens moguls, the amazing Shaun White, Evan Lysacek, Lindsey Vonn, Bode Miller, Seth Wescott, etc. etc. etc. I'm so proud to be a citizen of this country, especially when we kick booty!

Wow, I'm not very good at this blogging thing!

So I read everyone else's blogs, and it makes me want to become a great blogger, but every time I begin a new post, I don't know how to do anything. That being said, if there are any veteran bloggers out ther who want to give me a tutorial, I'd love it :)

As for my life, we just moved back into my parent's home last weekend (seems to be the story of my life). Just can't get enough of this place. It's actually been a smooth tranisition, except for Caleb's awesome sleep habits have gone down the drain. I'm blaming it on those darn teeth of his that decided to come way too early, and on the environment change!

Goodbye apartment #15! You will surely be missed!

I went inside our empty apartment and started to tear up. I never thought I'd get so attached to our small 70's apartment, but in the short year and a half I had some monumental moments! It was mine and James' first place together, and where we brought home our first baby. I made us take this picture on our way back from church on Sunday, so that I'd never forget this place. What made it even harder was the fact that it was so fun living so close to Allison and Josh. We miss you guys, but we'll still make time for prison break!

Here are some other things that have been going on in our lives as of late!

Caleb was blessed the sunday after Thanksgiving, and daddy gave him a beautiful blessing. He even said Scott Auali'i right (after his two granpas). We so appreciated the love and support of everyone who shared this special moment with us!

Our 10th annual friends Christmas party! Love my girlies!

Caleb's first Christmas was a blast, and he already knows that Santa is a fake. It's nice to know that I can take the credit for his Christmas gifts :)

Chilling with Grandpa Banks on Christmas Eve. We had fun opening our pajamas from grandma and my pink pistol from grandpa (no joke). Each family then shared a Christmas story or talent. It was a ton of fun!

We first opened presents in our apartment, which of course, Caleb loved!

We then went over to the Kellys' and opened our stockings and gifts, and boy did Caleb get spoiled! We also loved our awesome homemade gifts from David and Emily!
My in laws are all so crafty! Too bad I'm not.

I just love to watch daddy bond with his son!

Girls dinner with some of my old college roommies! It was great seeing them all!

Well, that's a quick glance of the Kellys' lives as of late. We're doing great, and Caleb is getting cuter and cuter every day!
