The next day, Wednesday, Josh went back to work. Caleb and I handled it well. It wasn't until later in the day though that I realized I hadn't been drinking as much water or eaten as much as I should have. I didn't have Josh to help refill my water jug or grab a snack for me. I had been spoiled! Josh has been so supportive and helpful! What a great Daddy!!! I'm so impressed with his instincts and memory from the classes we took or advice someone gave. He's been great at making sure Caleb gets tummy time. He's also the "Baby Whisperer." See picture:
Starting Wednesday (April 27th) Caleb has been having alert mornings. He will usually have a feeding around the 8:30am time and after that he just has 5 minute cat naps until early afternoon. I can't believe how alert he is! It's been fun, but also a transition for me. What I accomplished and the sleep I got changed too! Caleb liked the swing and Woody enjoyed hanging out near him.

Wednesday afternoon Caleb went to Oma's work. The physical therapists and other district employees enjoyed the baby time. We were there for two hours...being held and adored. He wore his onesie that said "I heart my physical therapist." Adorable! Oma has seen Caleb every day since he's been born. Going on 12 days today. Some times it's just 10 minutes, but it's still enough time for several kisses!
Thursday I stopped by Bridges, my work, after school to introduce Caleb to the whole staff. Again he was doted on and loved. He's pretty perfect...at least that's what everyone else says:) Below is another sideways picture (I don't know why), but it is Peggy, my teaching partner, holding Caleb.
Today, Saturday, has been a leisure day. Josh and I did some cleaning while Caleb did some sleeping. Hard work for all of us:) The family time with all three of us is my favorite. This morning we were all laying in bed and my heart nearly burst with joy. I am so blessed!
