Things are going well so far. Caleb is almost a week old and while lacking in sleep, we are enjoying the perks of being new parents. We love to watch the little one rest and look up at us while he feeds, I get a kick out of him grabbing onto my finger and his facial expressions keep me always attentive to his little face. Teresa is also doing fine though still experiencing the fatigue and some pains from the birth. I'm very proud of her persistence through it all, she's one heck of a trooper! We visited a lactation consultant yesterday and she was very kind and helpful. I find myself asking a lot of questions that begin with, "Is it ok if..., Am I hurting him when I..., Is this right?", etc, etc. Grandpa Butch arrives this evening and will get to see his first granchild. We're all looking forward to family coming to visit! Until next time, adios.

Ps 150: 1-2 Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness.
(UPDATE) It's now 0700 and we all just got out of bed for feeding time. Caleb was great, he slowly opened his eyes, wiped some crust off and just kinda looked at me as if to say, "What are you doing waking me up?" He's happy now, close to Mama and staying warm.
