Welcome Caleb!!

Great news, my sister Amy had her 3rd baby boy this morning. Congratulations to Amy, Jacob, big brothers Joshua and Cameron!

Caleb joined the world at 7:02 am, weighed 8 lbs 4 oz. and is 20 inches long.

Elliott decided to wake up at 5am today to eat. After slowly eating about 1 oz (in 30 minutes) I got him going and he finished his bottle. But, he was wide awake. In frustration I decided to drive him around for a bit to get him to go to sleep. (I'd like to take a moment to say that this is the first time I've done that). As E and I are driving around I got a text from my sister saying she was heading into the hospital. I called and asked if there was anything I could bring for them. Jacob said he'd would love a coffee. Once I got to the delivery room I heard some very painful noises. Amy was delivering that very moment! I guess I'm lucky that Elliott decided to wake up so early otherwise I wouldn't have been able to meet Caleb this morning.

I'll try to post some pics. of the new guy today if I can get some. We will be heading back up to the hospital in a while to bring lunch and to visit.

Congrats again to the Shank family!! :)

Great timing! :) Hey, no shame in driving E around...we've done that WAY more than once! Whatever it takes to have a happy baby and a sane Mommy. :)
