I feel like I've lived the past couple months in a cloud. I've been a tired, uncomfortable, impatient mess of a pregnant woman. I had contractions since January, two toddlers to care for and incredibly swollen ankles.
Oh, yes, I was a bundle of joy.
And then, it came time to have my baby boy and, in a matter of seconds (ok...HOURS!), the cloud lifted.
What a miracle child birth is and how blessed I have been to have been able to experience it now three times with my wonderful husband. Caleb James was born March 14 at 2:30 p.m. and was 7 lbs and 20 inches. He was the smallest of any of our babies, with healthy lungs and the cutest face you've ever seen. Instantly, he stole our hearts.
I just know he'll steal yours.
While his birth was fairly easy, my recovery has not been as smooth as I had hoped, so I'm not quite ready yet to sit down and write again. Therefore, please enjoy the pictures in the meantime. He's a cutie!

|Cuddling up to my new boyfriend. He sleeps like me - head back and mouth wide open.|
|Daddy: in love already.|
|Bright-eyed and alert - when he's not sleeping, he's really into everything...when he's not eating...|

|Seriously, Aunt Allison, you have no idea what I've been through.|
|Precious... and see? Mouth open!|
|First day home. "So they tell me that you are my sister..."|
|Homecoming complete with a birthday party! Look at Allison and then at Elizabeth - the whole scene cracks me up. Oh, and where might Rachel be?|
|Pinned tight to Mama... ha! Actually, my little needy girl has been adjusting much better than what I expected. I've been very proud of her.|
|I just need ten minutes, people...TEN MINUTES!|
|NO!!! I don't want your kisses!!!|
|Cheesing with grandma before church.|
Thanks for looking, my friends!
