Blessing upon Blessing

have been doing some thinking this morning about how much the Lord has blessed me. I have sunch a wonderful husband. He is a godly man, a provider, a spiritual leader, and a great father to our son.

Our son, Caleb, is such a good boy. God says He will never give us more than we can handle, and the Good Lord must know I am weak, because Caleb is the easiest baby I have ever heard of. He was so spot on with everything developmentally that I used to tell his doctor that I thought he was a "training baby." I really felt like the Lord was making it easier on me by giving me training wheels or something. He was on a schedule early on and was sleeping 12 hours all night by about 8 1/2 weeks, and I still felt like I was at my wit's end when that time came around.

Now I have a beautiful, healthy baby boy, who is getting too big too fast. Caleb is almost a toddler now. He will be 11 months old in 2 weeks, and with his first birthday creeping up I can't help but think about how fast time is flying by. He has learned so much, and is so healthy and strong. I can truly look at him and know that I had nothing to do with it. The Lord blessed me with everything Caleb is, he is just one big ball of blessings.

It's a Great Day for an Endoscopy

am at the hospital right now. Shawn has been having horrible stomach pains for over a month and he's getting an endoscopy right now. He wasn't able to eat anything all day long and I didn't want to eat in front of him, so I am starving! I'm in the cafeteria right now listening to elevator music and eating a really expensive salad. They probably have to pay doctors so much so that they can afford to eat lunch. The hospital has free wifi, so I'm able to kill the time on the computer.

Poor Shawn. On top of having pain, being hungry, and having to get a camera shoved down his throat, he was nervous about the procedure. At first he was worried about going under the anethesia. Then, when he found out that he would be awake, he was worried he would gag on the camera. He was especially concerned when he found out the Dr who is doing the endoscopy normally doesn't numb the throats of his patients to stop them from gagging. I hope everything goes alright.

I wonder if he will be able to eat whatever he wants when he gets out. I hope so. I hope his throat isn't sore from the scope. I got him a rice krispy treat from the cafeteria. He really wanted one yesterday and we didn't have any, so I was excited to see that there were some for sale here.

Well he should be getting done right about now. Be back later to update you!
