dear caleb // week three

Dear Caleb,

Time sure does fly around here.  It's hard to believe that we're celebrating three weeks already! We can't even remember what our days were like without constant feedings, diapers to change, and endless loads of laundry.  Our days blur together and we often find ourselves unsure of what day of the week it is!  But we love it!  We love every minute we get to cuddle with your and soak you up...sometimes it's so hard to put you down!

Though it wasn't as hot as this time last year, this week was miserable!  You and mommy spent much of the week cooped up in the house to stay cool.  You didn't mind so much as your week consisted of lots of eating and sure are a growing boy! At mommy's appointment the Dr. weighed you - 10 lbs. 3 oz.!  It's so amazing that this is all because of mommy's milk - go us!

We took our first family trip to the zoo with our church friends.  It was a hot and sticky trip, but a nice outing for mommy and daddy.  Mommy wasn't thinking and left the camera at home so we didn't get any pictures of your first carousel and train rides.  We'll definitely have to make another trip before the end of the summer as you slept through the whole visit!

This week we also celebrated Grandpa Cripe's birthday with your first trip to the TinCaps baseball game.  Again you spent the majority of the game asleep, but your Aunt Ris and Grandma Cripe enjoyed cuddling you!

The biggest event of the week was the introduction of your pacifier!  It took mommy a couple of weeks to finally give it to you, but life has been a little quieter around here since!  Thankfully you don't "need" it all the time, but it has been a lifesaver in the car or when you're just too tired and not able to fall asleep on your own.  It's hard for mommy to hear you cry and not know how to make it better - we're all thankful that the pacifier has seemed to help you calm yourself in these moments!

Mommy didn't do a very good job with the camera this week, but you're continuing to show that little personality of yours!  When you're awake you love to look around the room as if you're taking in all your surroundings.  Maggie continues to get more and more comfortable with you and I think you're starting to realize that she's there.

love you always,
mommy & daddy
