With Caroline's 2 week birthday looming, I decided it was high time I blogged about our newest family member. Caroline Paige was born via c-section at 11:02 am. She weighed 8lbs 3 oz and measured 20 inches. She came out with a full head of black hair and long lashes. She looks very similar to big brother when he was a newborn. I stayed at the hospital until Saturday and relished the help of my in-laws who came Wednesday night and stayed until the next Tuesday night. Luke had a ball. Luke loves baby sister, Caroline or baby girl. He will ask where she is if she's not in his view. He gives her kisses that are more like blowing on her or whisper kisses and that's super cute. So far he hasn't done anything aggressive towards her, on purpose. He likes to hold her a few minutes at a time. She's a good eater and a fair sleeper. Last night she only woke up 3 times. How awesome is that at almost 2 weeks old. Even though she is sleeping good for a new baby, I am still sleep deprived. But it's better than it could be, so I'll take what I can get. I have also appreciated the meals sent over by friends and the well wishes. Hope to see you all soon!

This is Greg's hobby garden. He has grown broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and peas in this patch and tons of peppers and some lettuce in the front. He also grew cherry tomatoes last year. We are waiting to see how the strawberry patch in the front does and Greg will be experimenting with growing full size tomatoes this year.
