9 Years Old Today !!

Caleb turned 9 years old today! :o)

It just seems like we brought him home and now he is growing up so fast!

He was 5 weeks premature, and delivered by emergency c-section. He weighed in at a healthy 5lbs 7oz. The doctors told us that 15 minutes more and it would have been a completely different outcome for both Caleb & me. The events leading up to and including his birth confirm that God was watching over us. :o)

We spent 2 and a half weeks in the hospital only because I wanted to nurse and they had to be sure that he would gain well that way. Once they could see that he was gaining and maintaining his weight, we were allowed to come home. :o)

Despite the fact that he was a preemie, he has grown by leaps and bounds. He is geting so tall and catching up to my husband & me. Well we're both short so that is easy to do. lol ;o)

We are so blessed and thankful to have such a healthy, happy and sweet boy to love.
