On December 14th, our sweet baby boy, Caleb Patrick, was born! Not knowing the gender during the pregnancy, it was a wonderful surprise to meet Caleb and to find out that we would now have two beautiful little boys in our family! After Caleb's birth, we enjoyed relaxing at home, getting to know him, and celebrating the holidays with our new addition. Lots of family and friends came to visit and to help out, and we are so grateful for that. We don't know what we'd do without such a loving support system!
It's been amazing to watch our 3-year-old bond with his new baby brother. Since the day he came to meet him at the hospital, he has welcomed him into our family with kisses and hugs. We feel so blessed and fulfilled. I just love the photo below of the two of them sleeping together. Caleb was only a few days old and Grayson was already napping in his bed so I put the baby down next to him for a minute just to snap a quick pic with my phone. There's nothing great about the quality or the composition of course, but I just love their little heads together, face to face, in peaceful dreamland. It's so sweet.
A few weeks after his birth, a talented photographer friend of mine, Kendra Krishnan Photography, generously came over to capture a few images of our family. I am so incredibly grateful for these images and for the chance to be on the other side of the lens. I will cherish them forever. Here are a few of my favorites.
And, finally, here is Caleb's official birth announcement (which hasn't even gone out in the mail yet, but has been on my "to do" list for weeks!). I guess that's what life is like with two kids now! ;-)
