Caleb's 1st Christmas

I can't even express how incredibly happy we are to have Caleb here to share Christmas with. He is our Christmas miracle. The boys were so excited to open presents with their brother. I can never thank God enough for allowing us this time to be with our son. I never want this moment to end.

Steven got me the most incredible is a huge portrait of Caleb. He is the best husband..the best father. He just lit up being with his boys...the love he has for them is breath taking. We have made memories that will last a lifetime......Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve

We went to Christmas Eve Service tonight. I was recalling that this time last year we had just recently found out about Caleb having trisomy 18. We couldn't hold back the tears during the service. Our hearts were broken thinking we would not be able to have our son to hold. This year we were crying because we are overcome with so much joy. We are so blessed to be celebrating Christmas with our son Caleb and for his brothers to be able to create such priceless memories with him. I cannot thank God enough for the wonderful gift he has given us...each and every day. After church some family came by and we opened gifts. Before going to bed the boys put out some reindeer nip, & cookies & milk for Santa. We heard Santas bells and quietly looked out the bedroom door. Santa (f-i-l) put out gifts and with a ho ho ho went on his way. Now I am ready for bed....I'm sure it wont be too long before I'm awaken by excited little ones. Merry Christmas to all!

Happy 9th month Birthday

Caleb was suppose to have pictures done today and a special lunch. He hasn't been feeling well so we had to cancel. We received a beautiful birthday cake to celebrate with. Thank you Michelle & Shannon. We are pretty concerned because Caleb just hasn't seemed himself..very lethargic. Praying my baby feels better soon.

New Toys & Peek-a-boo

Caleb got a new toy for Christmas. We aren't waiting to give him all of his presents until Christmas. We want him to enjoy them little by little....make Christmas last a little longer. It is hard to find things that are appropriate for his special abilities. But he loves his new colorful ring. He brought it up to his mouth once. Then he started playing peek a boo with daddy. He would bury his head, look out the corner of his eye and then turn his head back up to look at him. It was so cute. Devin had also given him a stuffed monkey the other day. It is perfect for his little hands.
