He's Here!






This is just a quick post to let everyone know that Caleb arrived safely (just three and a half hours after being induced) on Tuesday, November 20th. He weighed 8 lbs and 14 oz and was 20 inches long. We're all doing really well! My worst complaint is that sleeping in that hospital bed for two nights has made my back hurt. Olivia takes turns by moment from being super thrilled and very helpful to a little weirded out by the whole thing. She was asking me why his belly button looked so funny today and after I explained it she sat there a moment with a thoughtful expression and then said "Mom - I'm going to have to get used to all of this." Ditto kid! Even though this is a huge adjustment for us all I am so grateful to have my strong, healthy, beautiful boy here - what an amazing blessing he is and what a truly thankful Thanksgiving we are having!
