Uncanny Resemblance


Love when I get similar pictures to compare. They definitely are different looking boys, but this picture is the most similar of pictures I have of both boys so it’s easiest to compare here. You can tell they’re brothers though! Here’s Caleb at 6 days old (September 11, 2007): Here’s Jack at 8 weeks old Read More

2 Year Old in Public


Scene 1 – At Menards! Caleb has quite the vocabulary and has to vocalize everything he’s thinking pretty much all day long.
