Caleb the 1-Year-Old!

Our sweet little Caleb turned one year old on November 29!  The memory of his birthday remains vivid in my mind, and it's hard to believe that we're now calling him our "one-year-old."  

By God's grace, I was not nervous about having 2 children 15 months apart; instead, I was very excited at the thought of having two little ones grow up together so close in age.  I did hope, however, that Caleb's first year would be as smooth as was Luke's, who was a relatively happy little one.  I never would have imagined how enjoyable that transition could be, though, and I attribute that to Caleb's laid back and pleasant personality.  

If there is one word that I'd choose to describe Caleb's first year, it is the word easy.  From pregnancy to delivery to sleep to play time to eating, Caleb has been so easy and cheerful! A few examples of his cheerfulness include how patient he is with his brother who likes to climb all over him; how he consistently stretches out his hand to give us a high five when we say "no" to him as he crawls towards dangerous areas in the house; and how he kicks his legs with excitement when he sees his daddy walk in the door from work. Caleb exemplifies the truth that "A joyful heart is good medicine," Proverbs 17:22.  

Here are pictures of our jolly little guy, month by month:

 What a joy you bring to our family, Caleb!  May you come to "follow God fully," like your biblical namesake.  We love you so much!
