Sweet Baby Kaleb.

Just a quick post to share with you our sweet little boy. He is sleeping at the moment, and so should I... it could be a long night!

Our precious bundle of joy has finally arrived. Kaleb Josiah Turek is such a sweet baby boy, we are beyond blessed. He was born on 7/20/2010 at 7:31 a.m. weighing in at 9 lb. 1 oz. and measuring 21.5 inches long.

One last photo before heading to the hospital at 5:00 in the morning. Instructed to wear glasses, no jewelry and no makeup for the c-section.

Starting to get nervous. I managed to throw up before the surgery even began!

Meeting my sweet little boy for the first time. I didn't get to hold him, but I got to touch him and tell him that I loved him.

Weighing in after getting cleaned up. What a big boy!

Kaleb is doing great and I am recovering slowly but surely. I will post more on the birth later, but for now I should really head to bed. Thanks everyone for your prayers!

Wow...sweet tears are in my eyes! What a miracle! He is precious, and I am so glad you're in the recovery phase...can't wait to hear more about the experience later, and am ready for the cloth diaper stories once they start! Love you SO SO much, and am thrilled that the Turek's are now a family of 3!

Yea! I've been stalking the blog in hopes you'd post some photos...The picture of you kissing his little forehead brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy that the c-section went okay and that all are healthy. Kaleb is adorable, and I'm excited to watch as he grows and changes over the years. :) Congratulations again!
