I'm in Love

with this guy

Can you blame me?

Look at those blue eyes.

I can't help myself.

I prayed for this little guy. And, of course, I loved him from the very first moment. But lately he has stolen my heart. He is just so stinkin' sweet. He loves to eat my face and squeeze my neck.

He is a mama's boy for sure. And he is completely content as long as he is in his mama's arms.

But I'll admit this was getting a little tiring. Caleb has been pretty high maintenance. He continues to wake up in the middle of the night and has been a nursing machine. He refused the bottle - milk, formula, breast milk, it didn't matter. He just wanted mama.

Until this past week! Caleb is officially weaned! Maybe this is a little tmi, but I am very excited about it. Based on my calculations, in the past 4 1/2 years, I have been nursing for 37 months -- that is over 3 years! (Robbie for 15 months, Eveley 10 months, and Caleb 12 months).

Caleb is now sleeping through the night, and I feel like a new woman!

I continue to be amazed that my heart does not explode with all of the love I have for my 3 children. What a gift!

I can see why you are so in love...he is a CUTIE. I am so glad that you are getting some sleep. Lauren. That is probably one of the reasons you are feeling so giddy over him!!!! Happy New Year. Caleb looks so much like Robbie to me. Such a little angel.
