Week 1 in the life of…

Well, we celebrated Caleb’s one week birthday on Thursday, and finished up the last of the amazing chocolate zucchini birthday cake we made with Grammy Jenell (thanks Bekah for that recipe!). Caleb’s sleeping longer, Mommy’s not nearly as sore as she was last week, and we’re getting somewhat of a routine happening, along with having a few visitors. So here’s some more shots to sate your appetite for images of Caleb.


Uncle J was the first to visit.

Caleb likes to be swaddled but seems to prefer having one hand available to suck.

Caleb had his first home bath (thanks Daddy!) and quite enjoyed himself, especially his towel. He also sprayed his Daddy onceĀ  he was clean & dry (check the shirt) … good timing, Caleb.

He does a lot of sleeping (his record is 4 hours straight one night).

And Auntie Alli came with Caleb’s cousins McKenzie & Brynn. So much fun to have them together! (Caleb did have a video-conferencing session via Skype with his other cousin Alianna in Colorado.)

Again, thank you for your care and prayers. We are overwhelmed by God’s goodness and beauty, expressed in the wonder of this little boy. It’s hard to articulate the emotions, but tears come very easily these days. Ok, time to change a diaper. Bye for now.
