Adventures of Caleb: Month One

This handsome guy joined our family a little befor 10am on June 16th. 
And his big sister immediately fell in love with him (as did we!) 
This month has been...hard but wonderful. It's hard when Caleb doesn't sleep well at night and then I have to be awake and happy for Rebekah during the day. But it is wonderful when Caleb sleeps 4 hours at a time at night which he usually does one time a night.
It is hard when I have to really watch what I eat because Caleb has a sensitive tummy and lots of foods I eat give him gas. 

But it is wonderful when he is happy and she is happy. They are so fun to watch together. Rebekah is such a great big sister! Always wanting to help and giving tons of kisses! 

It's hard when they both need my attention (and are crying!) but I can only help one of them at a time.

But wonderful that Caleb is a pretty easy going baby and really only cries if he is hungry or has gas in his tummy.

Overall this last month of adjustment to being a family of 4 has been a smooth transition. It feels like Caleb has always been a part of our family.

Dear Caleb,

A little over a month ago, your daddy and I got to meet you for the first time. You came when you were ready (9 days past your due date but right on time!) and you didn't take to long to make your entrance to this world (I was in labor for about 6 hours). And we instantly fell in love with you, our sweet boy!

You are a very "chill" baby as described by a friend. You are an excellent nurser and eat about every 3 hours. As long as you are clean and fed you are pretty content. You prefer to sleep in your swing rather than your bed and you do not like to be swaddled. You like to have your hands up by your face, both when you are asleep and awake. You love to watch your sister as she plays and tolerate her constant kisses. You are such a healthy boy and are already wearing 3 month clothes. 

You are staring to be awake more and show us your sweet little personality. I can hardly wait to see how much you grow and learn in the next month!
