Halloween 2009

I am so amazed that I am even posting this. We made it to Halloween! Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be dressing up the boys to share moments with their baby brother, Caleb. We had such a good time going to Coon Hollo Corn Maze, The Pumpkin Patch and of course trick or treating. We made some wonderful memories and I don't think the boys will ever forget how absolutely adorable their baby brother was as Master Yoda. Our children are our world. They are precious and I thank God everyday for them......

A day of reality

Caleb has been having issues with his oxygen levels being low and I noticed that his heart rate had gotten really low, in the 60's. That is something I hadn't noticed before. I called the cardiologist and pulmonologist to see what I needed to do. Caleb's pulmonologist felt like we really needed to see about getting him on a cpap or bipap. But we first had to get him use to using a mask. That in and of itself is going to be a major feat. Her concern is that she knows that Caleb stresses out so badly that he causes himself to crash. So the options are to either get him use to using a mask or let his respirations slowly get worse. Not an option that we like. So daddy is trying to figure out a way to get more oxygen to him without a mask. Maybe tenting the one end of his crib.

I spent the day loving on him, playing with him, taking pictures and videos. I couldn't stop laughing and crying. Devin got to go spend the day with his friend Liam. It was good for him and it was good for me to have some alone time with Caleb. These days of reality checks are hard. I just love my boys and the thought of losing either of them just rips my heart apart. I know the reality with Caleb I just don't like it when it slaps me in the face.

Mommy & Caleb Time

We got to spend some alone time together, it was wonderful. Thank you God.

New Crib

Two very wonderful people gave us a brand new crib for Caleb. They had wanted to do something for us when Caleb was born regarding baby furniture. Because we thought that Caleb would only be with us for a short while we decided to not get any furniture. He would stay in a bassinet that was just his size. Now that Caleb has amazed us all and is 6 months old, it is time to move up into a crib! What an awesome milestone. He loves his new sleeping arrangements. Thank you so much for the amazing gift. I love looking over at him sleeping, he's such a big boy. He's also surrended by pictures of all his little friends & angels.

We were so excited...Caleb tried his first baby food...applesauce. He doesn't take anything by mouth so we wanted to start out slow. I don't know that he will be able to take a lot of the baby food but he at least gets to try new flavors. He seemed to do really well. Another awesome milestone!
