Grant's Many Faces

One of Grant's favorite things to do while nursing is fall asleep. So we (Grammy, Daddy, and I) spend a lot of time trying to wake him up. Sometimes it is nearly impossible. This was one of those times. Despite all our tickling, kissing, and talking, Grant continued to dream away. In about a minutes time, he made all of these faces as we watched and laughed.

We're Home!

We are home and enjoying Grant more and more each day. He is such a good baby! He cries only when he REALLY wants to eat. Both Paul and I are getting tons of sleep at night thanks to Grammy, who takes over after each feeding. We can't wait until things get into a routine around here and we can have you all over to meet Grant. Right now our lives revolve around feeding time, and we are loving it! :)

Going Home

Grant came home on Thursday, May 21st, with an entourage of Mom and Dad, two Aunties, and both sets of Grandparents. He fell asleep for his first car ride, but woke up once we got home. We have settled in very well with the help of all our family.

Our Stay at the Hospital

We had a wonderful experience at the hospital with Grant's birth. All of our nurses were wonderful, especially our friend Keilah :). It was fun to have so many of you come to visit while we were there. I realized afterwards that I should have gotten pictures of all Grant's visitors. I even forgot to have you sign his baby book! Oops...oh well! We only stayed one night at the hospital. There was a little concern about Grant's blood sugar because his hands and lips kept shaking, but after a few tests throughout the first day they determined that he was fine. Praise the Lord for a healthy baby boy and a short stay at the hospital!

Our baby has arrived!!!

Grant Lewis Caswell was born May 20, 2009 at Rogue Valley Medical Center at 2:57 pm. He was 7lbs 9oz and 19" at birth. He and his mom are very healthy! He hasn't even cried yet - that will probably come soon though. Let us know when ya'll want to come change a poopie diaper.

Due Date!

Today is May 19th, the day Paul and I have been waiting for for 9 months! But...still no baby. We saw the doctor yesterday. The news is that nothing is happening to bring me closer to delivering anytime soon. We will go in for our next appointment next Tuesday, and the doctor said that if I still haven't progressed we will pick a date to induce. will come sooner or later. We are just trying to be patient :) Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

The First One

I am at home today, taking the day off work, trying to relax myself before Grant arrives. Working all day has been a strain on my swollen feet and tired body. But he is supposed to be here soon! Eight more days and counting...unless he decides to come late, which is what my doctor is predicting. We will keep you posted on what happens. Check back here for pictures of Grant when he arrives. Meanwhile, here are some of our pregnancy pictures.
