Tis the season!

 The Christmas season is finally upon us! We couldn't wait any longer and so yesterday we busted out Christmas at the Kaelber home :) Above is B helping me with some cute little Santa window stickers. These stickers bring this kid so much joy :)
 Picking out the perfect Christmas tree! Brod wanted to touch everyone of course ;)
 I think we found it! The most perfect real "un-perfect" tree at Lowe's.
 Decorating was a bit different this year. However, this will be a new normal for many years to come I'm guessing. Little hands always adds more fun to things, right??
 My favorite boys topping off the tree. Brod is doing surprisingly well at keeping his distance from the tree! Mike and I weren't sure what we were getting ourselves into, but we are very proud. He will walk/crawl by and reach his hand out for a touch but obeys very quickly when we tell him, "no". Way to go peanut!
 Uncle Adam got B an early Christmas/Birthday gift, a Spider man chair! He loves being in it during story time.
 Today was a big day. I finally caved and Brod received his first haircut! We went to a real fun place designed just for little ones. He sat in a race car watching some cartoons, he was a fan of every second! Above is the before picture.
 Here is a during picture. I just can't ever get over his cuteness! If I had my way I would be kissing those cheeks every second!
And now I present to you no more Baby Brody but hello Little Man Brody!

Family pics

We had some family pics taken last week. I've added a few favorites but the real favs will be on Christmas cards that will be sent out stay tune :)

We had the pups in two different shots for the whole shoot. I know I felt terrible not including them in all, however, it was just too much work fidgeting with B and the pups. Frankly the Gunner and Trig just wanted to run, so we did all have fun.

This week Mike and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! How crazy time goes by so quickly! This was his year to plan and he did such a wonderful job! Mike even arranged for Brody to stay at a friend's house for the night! We went to the Melting Pot and then stayed at our favorite hotel in Tulsa. It was the most perfect time of getting away, laughing, eating tons, and just not having a schedule :) We did miss the Brod (TONS!) but it was a great get away.

10 Month highlights

Sweet B, at 10 months:
  • You have 2 teeth!!
  • Walk like a crazy man with your walker train thing
  • Love banging things together to hear the noise. Along with that you love making loud noises yourself.
  • You eat finger food and do it great! You make one huge mess but it's so fun watching you go to town with your food. Your favorites are bread and cheese (your momma's favs also!) Your not gaining weight (big bummer) so we keep trying different combos of food choices to try this weight gaining thing. 
  • You've learned the art of throwing tantrums (no bueno!)
  • 9 month clothes fit you the best still.
  • Still enjoy reading books. We started going to the library once a week for story time, you are so entertained for a good 10 minutes before needing to look for friends around you :)
  • You are beyond adorable and we love you so, so, so much!!

Dear Santa....please bring us a new camera

We borrowed a friends camera yesterday. What fun! We are very thankful Christmas is coming up so we now know the one gift we both want.....a new camera :) (Don't overlook the above picture. It's one of our favorites due to an unexpected Trigger appearance in the left corner, hehehe!!)
Enjoy the pics!
