Welcome to the family!

Kaleb Charles Everett.
Born October 19th, at 1:04 am. 8 lbs, 7 ozs and 20 1/2 inches long!
After 13 hours of labor he finally made his long awaited appearence. And he is loved! We got to leave the Birth Center around 4:30 and go home, where we both caught up on some sleep. He's such a sweetheart, awake and alert all day! He looks like his daddy, doesnt look like a smith.

With Every Day Life Changes

"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; But often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us." -Helen Keller

Life sucks right now. It's hard to see the bright side. Or the silver lining as it is. But I'm trying. Recent problems have made life look like it's going to be a long and lonely one. But you know what, I know it won't. Life has it's ups and downs and thats just how it is.

Kaleb will be here any day now. Today is the 12th, supposably my "due" date. He's not ready to come out yet, it's much nicer inside than out right now. I give it another week at least. Nothing really exciting else is going on. Just thought I would put up a quote for the day. We have to remember to look for the other door. There is always another one.
