Keys to success

Caleb has developed an affinity for typing, most likely triggered by sitting on my lap while I work on the computer. Since his spontaneous lunging for the keys has increased in frequency, I took a trip to the Goodwill and bought him his very own keyboard and presented it to him only after compulsively wiping it down with countless alcohol wipes. It's his newest favorite toy.

The piano is a close second, but that's NOT from Goodwill so we're limiting his musical development at this point.

Mudbug Madness

Louisiana may be accused of many things (e.g. occupying some of the most natural-disaster-prone land in the U.S., operating under a set of laws unique to the state, promoting the culinary art of frying anything and everything). However if there is one thing Louisiana will never be accused of it's a lack of festivals. The most recent one was the Mudbug Madness Festival and boy was it mad...and HOT!

Caleb wasn't quite sure what to make of the mudbugs (a.k.a crawfish, or if you live in Nevada, crawdads)

He had his eyes on the prize: mommy's funnel cake. He's ready for solids, right?

Here's Caleb swapping spit (literally) with his friend Jaelynn who was also at the festival. He has a thing for older women.
