Caleb has grown amazingly fast this week. on Wednesday he was our little boy, and now he’s the big brother. now that we have the new baby, he really does look a lot different to me, much more grown up. I marvel at his big hands and feet and the strong muscles he’s got, not to mention the whole walking and talking thing. we’re so thankful that he seems to love his little sister, as he’s always wanting to see her and snuggle with her. he listens well when we tell him “gentle” and he doesnt like it when she cries. we hope and pray that his affection for her will grow.
so here he is during bath time today. yes, we need to cut his hair (for the first time).
and here he is snuggling with his baby sister. more on her cool outfit soon.
as for other baby news, everything is going quite well so far. Alice is a good eater and not a bad sleeper either. mama is feeling pretty good, especially compared to last time. we were both surprised at how well we remembered the sleeplessness and difficulties with Caleb as a newborn, but forgot the wonder and beauty of it all. so we’re doing our best to just treasure the time we have with our tiny girl. gramma and grampa are taking good care of us and having a blast with Caleb. and if any locals would like to stop by, call ahead and we’ll be happy to see you!
