4 Weeks Old

Caleb, today you are 4 weeks old, and I can't believe it!!! You have already grown so much and I just love spending every single day with you! You are a very laid back baby. You love to just sit and look around. And you love to eat! You're now up to 6 ounces at every feeding! I can't believe it! You also love to sleep and are going 4.5-5 hours in between feedings and are only waking up once in the middle of the night. Mommy loves you very much for this!! Each day with you is an adventure. You love to sleep on your tummy on mommy or daddy's chest. You've started focusing on your one toy that you have that makes noise, and you like to sit in your swing, even though mommy doesn't swing you because it's too violent looking:). You are still getting over your cold, but are doing much better. You are starting to fit into 0-3 month clothes, which means you are packing on the pounds. Mommy can't wait to start dressing you in all your cute little clothes, and taking you out to show you off! Only a couple more weeks and we'll be free and clear to go and visit all our friends! Daddy will be having shoulder surgery at the end of this week, so Grandma Preuss is going to come back and help mommy out with you, and I know she can't wait to get you in her arms again. Mommy is very thankful for such a wonderful, loving and supportive family who has been more than willing to help with anything we need, even though everyone is out of town. We've also started having meals delivered to us three times a week and that has been such a HUGE help for mommy! ALL the food we've received has been delicious! Caleb, you are such a precious blessing to mommy and daddy and we love you so very much!! Happy 4 week old birthday sweetheart!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

OH MY GOSH. The picture of him wrapped up in the towel is so, so cute. Makes me just want to squeeze him! (Gently, of course!)

Glad you guys got out and enjoyed the weather this past weekend. Taking a walk has a whole new joy when you're stolling your precious baby around, doesn't it?

Can't believe he's already 4 weeks. I call dibs on holding him first at group tomorrow!! :-)

He's so cute, I can't wait for you to come up and show him off. Hope Aaron's surgery goes well. Your comment was hilarious!! :-) You look awesome too.

Oh, I just LOVE him! I'm glad nights are going better for you guys. A little more sleep can make all the difference in the world!
