Caleb is doing great. He went to see the cardiologist yesterday for his heart murmurs, and now weighs 13 pounds!!! He has gained 3 pounds in 4 weeks!! He is a great eater, like his momma and daddy! Heart is good too, by the way. He is adjusting to day care and sleeping better at night. Mom and dad are sleeping better to which means we are all happier. :)He is holding his head up really well and has discovered it is okay to lay on his play mat on the floor. It is amazing to watch him discover and examine new things.
I keep waiting for life to get back to normal, but I am realizing this may be our normal and that's okay. I wouldn't change it for anyhting in the world. Love my 2 beautiful children and my wonderful husband. I promise to post some new pictures soon!

She came back and started school. She is now in the 2nd grade and is super excited. She loves her new teacher and was excited to see all of her friends.
Caleb also started daycare last week. It was harder on mom than it was on him. He seems to be doing well there. He went in for his 2 month check up and now weighs 10 1/2 pounds and is 23 1/2 inches long! What a growing boy. He is hungry all the time (up to 6 ounces and is still hungry every 2 1/2 to 3 hours!!!) so we are now adding a bit of rice cereal to his bottles. He is sleeping much better at night and has almost mastered sleeping through the night. Won't that be exciting when he does!
Here are a few pictures from his 2 month birthday...
Stephen and I are adjusting to life with 2 children rather than just one. It is so hard right now trying to balance our time between them both. It is definitly much harder to have 2 children than just 1! Hopefully we won't fail to miserably and we will end up with 2 happy, healthy, and well adjusted children!

He is more alert and awake these days and he loves to sit up and look around. He will mimick us when we stick are tongues out at him. It is amazing how quickly they learn and change in the first few months. He lost the baby hair on the top of his head, but it has quickly started to grow back in. Dad is a bit jealous of that.
Alyssa has really grown to love her baby brother. She loves to talk to him and help with anything she can. She misses him when she is gone and calls and asks about him and how he is doing. It is amazing how naturally she has grown to love this little being that has soooo changed life as she knew it.
Alyssa will start the 2nd grade this week (It has gone by soooo fast!) and we are all ready to get back into the swing of things. I am a little nervous about how I will manage in the mornings now with 2 children instead of just 1, but Alyssa promises to be helpful and get ready in the mornings. She has lost one of her front teeth and the one next to it is now loose. She may be singing "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth", by December.
That is pretty much all we have been up to the past month. Everyone has been working at adjusting to our new way of life. Caleb goes back to the doctor in 2 weeks for his 2 month check up. More to report then....in the meantime, here are a few pics.

After a few crazy days in the hospital we got to come home. Alyssa stayed with grandma for a few days so we could get use to having a baby around again!
Caleb went on his first road trip to Hereford on the 3rd of July since Aunt Susan, Uncle Shaun, and family were in town. He was introduced to his great-grandma's for the first time.

Alyssa also got to play her with twin cousins Autumn and Bailey! On the 4th of July, we hung out at the house and Alyssa shot her "fireworks" off in the backyard. She would not know what to do if she got to actually shoot off real fireworks! We went to the fireworks show in Amarillo that night and Alyssa got to play with sparklers.
Caleb is now 2 weeks old and weighs in at 6lbs 11oz and is 201/2 inches. Alyssa is slowly asjusting to having to share attention with her new baby brother, but she did admit she did not want God to take him back because she "has feelings for him". Stephen and I are slowly adjusting to the sleep deprivation, but I know it will get better. We are so blessed to have 2 wonderful children who are healthy and happy!
