Our "new" life.

Our "new life" consists of lots of kisses, sweet moments, gathering around a sleeping newborn... soaking in all the little faces, all the firsts. As I filled out his baby calendar the other day I realized that he has already experienced so much in his first days of life. I find myself wishing I could hit a "slow down" button. Wishing that I could hit pause, as I know these newborn days will go by too fast. That is what photos are for, I suppose. They capture those moments, freezing them in time to enjoy over and over again.

Kaleb had his first bath the morning after we arrived home. Needless to say, he didn't enjoy it very much. That is okay, he will in due time. I tried hard to push past the pain to help out in the experience, but after a while daddy had to take over.

His first time wearing a cloth diaper. And yes, he hates being cold.

All nice and warm now.

Time to file his nails.

And comb his hair.

Kaleb's first walk! We didn't make it far before mommy tired out, but it was a walk nonetheless.

Sweet baby sleeping. Does it get any better than this?

I love it when he grasps my hand.

Basking in the sun, trying to help with the jaundice.

Love my cuddle time.

Sweet little poses.

Kaleb attended his first birthday party for his grandma. It wasn't a huge celebration, but we did what we could. Of course, he probably slept through the whole thing anyway!

And one more frozen moment in time... baby toes are too sweet not to take photos of. Kaleb is wearing Daddy's wedding ring.

Suzanne, the photos are sooooo sweat! Your baby boy looks so gorgious and you can tell that he is really precious!!!! I still can´t believe that you finally have your cute Kaleb. :) You´re totally right that the time is passing by so fast especially when you see how your baby is growing so fast.
