I'm very proud to introduce Caleb Spurgeon Webb to you:

Our little man is a precious gift from God. He is a very peaceful, calm baby and loves to sleep (except in the middle of the night). He's actually asleep in my arms right now. He loves to eat, but tends to fall asleep about halfway through feedings. He's a cuddle bug and has already been loved on greatly by family and friends. We can watch him sleep for hours on end, and he's actually fairly animated when he's sleeping - making lots of faces and cute noises. And now he's waking up and anxious to eat, so we'll finish this later! :-)

Getting Adjusted

Sorry for the delay in updating. We're home from the hospital and have our precious son, Caleb Spurgeon Webb. He's absolutely amazing and we're getting adjusted to life with a newborn. It's definitely an adventure. I feel like my days aren't really starting until about 2:00 in the afternoon and then by about 9:00 pm we're ready for bed (sleeping is sporadic to say the least). I've been extremely, extremely extremely grateful for all the help and love from those around us during the last week. Stephen is an awesome father and help, and my mom is staying with us and taking care of so many details...her help has been priceless. Once we get into a little more of a routine, I'll be back to updating on a more regular basis. I hope to get some pictures up here soon. Our internet is slow when it comes to uploading pictures and I need to sort through all the pictures of the last week, which will take a little time. We love you all and hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Tomorrow is the Big Day!

We're headed to the hospital tomorrow for a 6am induction! I am so excited to know that Caleb will be here soon! Thanks for all the wonderful notes and prayers. We truly are thankful for them and can't wait to introduce you all to our precious little one.

This Baby is Late!

Still waiting. Today I'm not feeling very patient...

So glad my mom made it in town. Originally we didn't think she'd make it before Caleb was born. Now she's here and waiting with us. :-) We're trying to find things to do to pass the time. At least Wednesday is only 3 days away. Have I mentioned that we're scheduled for an induction early Wednesday morning? When it was first discussed, I thought there was no way we'd make it that far, and now it's just a couple days away. We can make it to Wednesday...if we have to. :-)

No Baby Yet

Well, we're back home and no baby Caleb so far. I was admitted to the hospital last night with contractions anywhere from 3-5 min apart, but they started to decrease as the evening progressed. Not exactly the direction we were hoping to go in. I'm still having little ones today, but nothing like we're waiting again. He'll be here eventually!

Maybe, Possibly?!

We're headed to the hospital! I sure hope this is the real thing. I've been having pains all day and they've gotten stronger and closer together. Talked with the dr's office and they said when they get 5 min apart to come in. We're there, so we're heading in... We'll update when we can! Be praying for us!

Still Waiting

No big news yet to update you on. Our due date is Thursday, so we're literally just waiting for things to start happening.

God blessed me with a great reminder yesterday that He is in control, which is much, much better than me being in control, and things will happen in His timing, which is perfect and planned out with a perspective that can see so far beyond my immediate viewpoint. My sovereign God sees every one of Caleb's days and how they will play out. He knows each step he will take as he journeys through his life. He knows the number of hairs on his head this very minute, as well as when he is 15 and 55. I'm so thankful for God's character. I can trust Him completely. So I'm ok to wait for His timing with this baby, even if it means another week of waiting!

Just had my 39 week check-up. Doc says Caleb is in the right position and we're just waiting for things to happen...could be tonight/could be over a week... it's pretty much just a waiting game. I know there's probably a big lesson in patience and waiting on the Lord that I should be learning, and maybe I am, but I sure do just want this little guy to come! I am trying to rest in the knowledge that things will happen in God's timing and when Caleb is ready. God's plan truly is better than my own. It sure would be nice if I could get a hint though! :-)
