Introducing...Caleb James Jackson!

That's right, he's finally here! Caleb was born on Tuesday, April 24, at 6:07am. He weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce, and measured at 19 & 1/2 inches long. I find it interesting that both of our children were born on does that old poem go?

Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

I like the idea that our children are "full of grace." They are certainly both a blessing and precious gifts from God.

Caleb's arrival was very smooth and without any problems, thankfully! We did end up having to evict him...we had an induction at 39 weeks. I think he was pretty comfy in there...he still curls up like a stink bug as much as possible.

Big sister is very excited. She loves to hold him, and always runs over to give him hugs.

Now we are a happy family of four!

First bath! he wasn't impressed at first...

We catch sleep whenever we can!

Checking to see if Daddy has milk...he was disappointed.
The past week has been a bit of a blur...I can't believe he'll be 2 weeks old in just a few short days! It's been lovely being home with my two kiddos...the park in the mornings, games with Olivia, family nap time after lunch, and lots and lots of rocking chair time with Caleb. :)  A few days ago we did a mini "photo shoot" and I was able to capture several really good pictures of them both...

He LOVES to be on his tummy, which makes his Pediatrician-Mommy crazy...but he's allowed only if I'm holding him (or taking his picture). :P

Sweet, sweet, beautiful children.

She loves her little brother!

Precious boy.

Lovely girl, growing up so fast!
