1 YEAR!? WOW time flies

What a roller coaster the past twelve months have been, but what a awesome ride it has been.  The last visit we had with the developmental specialist they told us he was doing so well that he could skip a few months of having to come see them.   Right now Caleb is getting up on all fours and really wants to be mobile.  He has the cutest laugh in the world that sounds like something from the chipmunks.  He is doing really well!  Thank you for your faithfulness in praying for Caleb and he truely has been a miracle to our family.  We thank God for His provision and His peace over the past year.  He is good!

6 months


WOW! It's hard to believe that Caleb is 6 months old already. He is up to 15 lbs and you can see by his picture he is starting to smile...actually he has been smiling for a while and has graduated to belly laughs. Up to this point from a growth and development standpoint he is doing great. Jayce and Kallie love their little brother and his face lights up when he sees them. I could not imagine any better big brother and big sister.


Please pray for his NICU friend Emily. She was admitted to Cook's Children's hospital almost 2 months ago because she wasn't eating and wasn't gaining any weight. Last we heard she was on a ventilator because she was too weak to breathe on her own. The doctors are still waiting on tests to come back and at this point they are not sure what is going on with her...God specializes in these situations and we are believing in a miracle. Please put little Emily on your prayer list.

Bigger, bigger and bigger

Caleb is growing too fast now! He is officially over 12 lbs as of today. He is smiling all of the time and every once in a while we get a little giggle. He averages about 6 hours of sleep at night but Saturday night was a real treat...he slept 8 hours!

Check out this video his big brother took:

Momma's milk...


It does a baby's body good. Caleb is up to 9lbs 5 oz. We don't realize how much he has grown until we look at the original doll picture.

Pictures!








Here are some pictures that our friend Staci took a couple of weeks ago. She did such a good job - of course she had a great subject. :-)
Caleb was 8 pounds 12 ounzes at his doctor's appointment today! He is such a sweet boy - we are still in awe of how awesome he is doing!

Praise God



Praise God for being our rock, our fortress, our deliverer, our strong tower, our provider, our everything. I forget sometimes that I am an adopted son, an heir to the kingdom. I get in the way of fully receiving what God is trying to pour into me. I try to box him in, I try to see him through tunnel vision, I try and limit him with my tiny human brain. My God is big and he does big things despite my infant faith...he loves to show off for his children. Praise God.
Caleb update: His official due date was July 8th. So today he is really 1 day old. On Wednesday he weighed in at 8lbs and 4oz. Today Valerie and Kallie took him to the development specialist and they said he looked great!
Just a little flash back photo. This is big brother Jayce holding little sister Kallie. Here is what this picture triggered in me: The blessings of the Father will be passed from generation to generation to generation. I speak that over the Chisum family.
