Hooray, home at last! Glad everyone is doing well. Thanks so much for sharing the photos with us, I loved looking at all of them. Keep us updated, we all love hearing about eachother's kids here. Your wife looks wonderful. Everybody looks so happy (aside from the car seat photo. lol. My one year old, Callum, still fusses when we put him in his seat).

great pics brad! again, congrats.

life isn't more exhausting or more rewarding than now, as you well know.

every day is a milestone. try to record in pictures and video as much as you can, and save all of the little stuff for remembrances, such as the hospital bracelets, a newspaper from the big day, first blankets and booties/hats. write down your feelings in a journal if you have time.

you'll really appreciate seeing and reading these things only a few short years from now, and moreso later on.

Your family is the picture of happiness. Sarah doesn't even look like she's just had a baby. What a beautiful girl! You're glowing, too. Happy daddy for sure. I'm jealous of Caleb's full head of hair. I had to polish my children's heads until they were nearly a year old.

I think Bean is very smart to warm up the crib for Caleb. Very helpful kitty. When my first child was born, my kitty was very protective of Shawn. Whenever a visitor would come into the house, Porky would make sure to be sitting by Shawn. Sometimes with his paw on Shawn's leg or tummy as if to say, "This is my boy. Don't even think of hurting him." We had Porky for 19 years and he was dearly loved by all the children.

Thanks for asking..

We are adapting very well.. We are in the process of trying to switch his schdedule, so he is awake during the day instead of ALL night.. There's been a couple of rough nights, but that's to be expected.. :)

Sarah is feeling back to 100%, which is great.. But I wouldn't expect anything less from someone as wonderful as her..

Caleb is a little "gassy" so we're trying to figure out why. He's nursing, so we have to slowly cut things from Sarah's diet here and there and see what makes an impact. For now though, we're just using the gas drops..

We certainly nap when he naps, so I am thinking a nap is coming on soon.. I'll be posting more pictures soon..

-Brad

Brad,
I think all babies get a little "gassy" My girls used the Mylacon drops and it really helped. We found that onions,and garlic caused the most problems if the food they were eating had a large amount in it. Small portions of onion and garlic that were well cooked caused no problem at all. We also found that both Carson and Ethan, swallowed a lot of air when they nursed and this made them uncomfortable as well..once we convinced them to "burp" kid burp the difference was amazing It sounds as if Caleb is thriving, so he will out grow this soon, don't worry just rub his tummy and sing him a song and he will be fine.
