Update...and a few pictures at last!

The last post was written prior to Caleb's appointment with the ophthalmologist. I'm happy to report that the appointment went very well! The doctor did not find anything structurally wrong with Caleb's eyes. He wants us to return in two months, and hopefully Caleb's eyes will have developed further by that time so he will be making eye contact, etc. We are still waiting for the neurologist's office to contact us regarding the MRI they are scheduling. I have called a couple times to check on it, but to no avail.

I was still feeling unsettled after the appointment. It's good to know that there is nothing wrong with Caleb's eyes, but why doesn't he respond to us? We are not the only ones who have noticed and been concerned about his lack of interaction. But anyway, God did something so sweet for me that night. At 5:30 in the morning, Caleb looked at me and smiled! It was so encouraging.

With all that has been going on, I am very behind on posting pictures! I only have time to post a few right now, but I will try to do more later this weekend.

Caleb is meeting my good friend, Amy. She has had two different types of leukemia, and she had a bone marrow transplant just over a year ago. She calls her donor "Caleb."

We realized how big he was getting when I went in to get him up from his nap and his onesie was halfway down his chest! Notice the pitiful tear tracks. :(
Happy Easter! My brother Matt got to come home on leave for a few weeks, and Caleb met him on Easter Sunday.

I'll be praying for you with Caleb's appointments. I know that must difficult. He is adorable. And I loved seeing photos with our Aunt Amy. She's such a sweetheart!
