On Caleb and the Busyness of Life...

Have you ever felt as if the days are simply a blur...as if the week goes by without you even realising that Monday has come and gone and the weekend is upon you once again?
That is how it has been in the Gray household of late; while we are in this delightful season of having a wee baby in the house, the normality of life has taken on a different flavour.
I find myself looking at Caleb who is just shy of eight weeks, wondering where time has gone...surely he isn't almost two months??

In between caring for this precious baby boy I am blessed to call my brother and enjoying the gorgeous smiles he gives, I have been fighting off colds every few weeks and trying to keep up with sewing for Heartmade...  The Lord has had His hand upon our little business and blessed us with orders and sales even though it is winter and our quiet time of year...thus, my sewing machine has been whirring daily!

I hope to show you what I have been making in a post very soon, but in the meantime how about stopping by our new shoppe Facebook page?  We decided to create a page for us to share our recent projects, updates on our Etsy shoppe and more and we hope that it will be a lovely growing opportunity for us!  Visit us by clicking here...

It is my hope to return to regular writing and visiting soon as oh!  I have missed you all very much and don't enjoy feeling like such a stranger around the blogging world...  While I am putting together a wonderful post of photographs from a recent family outing, I will share Caleb's seven week pictures with you...I am sure you aren't tiring of seeing this adorable boy yet!


Until next time, dear friends...may the Lord bless each of you with a joyful, annointed day!

In Christ,

How nice to see a post from you sweet friend! Oh, your precious baby brother is so adorable. I know how busy life is with babies and they are well worth every moment we have with them. They do grow so quickly. Enjoy each and every stage. You must all be such a help to your mom. I just know God is blessing you all in many ways.
My love to you and yours,

My how he is growing! Yes, time does seem to slip by us without us noticing! I don't blog as often now for that reason. So much to do and accomplish in a day. Enjoy that little one for before long he will be running around and on with his life. Love those pretty eyes of his.

Hugs to you Kelly-Anne,

Hello There!
Yes, most days feel like a blur around here too! It's summer time here and it's been a rather hot one. Today's high is suppose to be 103 degrees! Yikes! The boys are swimming in the pool and I'm trying to do a few things inside where the air is on!

That darling Caleb is so gosh darn cute! And to think he's almost 2 months is crazy. They do grow up rather quickly, don't they?

I can't wait to see what projects you are making.

Until then... Take care of yourself!

Hugs, Amy

Oh I do understand! He's only small but that handsome little man could turn a household upside down! Good job there are willing helpers. I hope you can make a little time for yourself to recharge, dear friend :)
Wow, what an experience you are having...before I had my own I didn't know one end of a baby from the other(well, almost). It is very useful!
I hope your Mum is still doing well and send love to you all.

Oh Kelly-Anne ... What a precious post this is. He is such a joy to see him grow so healthy. I'm sorry your family has been suffering colds. Praising Our Lord for the sales that you have been blessed with. Get well soon.

Oh Kelly-Anne, Caleb is quite a handsome boy. That first photo of him is precious, and those lips are adorable.
Thank you for sharing him with us.
Your hand made from the heart creations are all so beautiful.
Happy to hear that you are busy selling during your slow time.

Sweet blessings to you and your family.

My dear friend! What a true delight and joy it was to see a new post from you pop up today :) I have so missed your writings and such, but yet at the same time, I'm so glad and thankful that you have had this time to enjoy your little brother. My, oh my! He is growing up so fast! These pictures are beyond adorable ♥ He is a cutie, that's for sure! I think the fourth and fifth pictures are my favorites in this bunch! His expressions are priceless :)

I wish you a lovely end of June and a very beautiful week! I hope you are enjoying a lovely winter so far...summer is in full swing here now!

Thinking of you often, Kelly-Anne! Give my love to your family!

Much love and many hugs!

Oh, my! How adorable!!! He is just a living dollbaby! Thank you so much for sharing, sweet friend. I do apologize that I have not responded to your email. Life has been so busy, and I have very little time to be online these days. Sending you much love, and will write to you as soon as I can!

Sarah said...

Caleb is such a cutie! Enjoy these sweet days with your little brother, they go so quickly.

I am sorry to hear you have had so many colds! I have been in a similar situation, and it can take a lot out of you. May the LORD strengthen you!

Dear Kelly-Anne,
He is as precious as he can be! Every expression is cuter than the one before! you are all so blessed!

I will hop on over to your facebook page!
Have a lovely week!

Oh, precious Kelly-Anne, what a sweetheart Caleb is and such a handsome young babe! My, he is growing and has such an adorable face and such sweet expressions...would melt anyone's heart! Oh, the fun you must all have with him. I will be praying for you as you fight off colds every few weeks. Winter is a hard time for that, especially being so busy. It's wonderful to hear you are on FB (not that I spend much time on it at all!), but I have "liked" you there and have also "favorited" each Etsy item. I heard from a friend that it helps. Well, you keep sewing on, my sweet friend, and I continue to pray for you all, especially your precious momma. Big hugs and lots of love to you all! And don't worry about posting too often. You just take care of yourself and your family. We'll always be here for you. xoxo

SUCH a sweetie-pie!! What amazingly wonderful days these are for you all, Kelly-Anne. How precious it is that you are able to be so *hands on* with your newest little family member. How good and gracious our Great God is! Hugs to you, Camille

Olivia Bell said...

What a sweet post, Kelly-Anne! Caleb appears to be growing cuter every day! {{smiles}} I really enjoyed all of his delightful photos!

Vicky Hunt said...

I understand life being busy lately. Mine has been as well but of course, not with a precious baby. How I would love that though. Little Caleb is so precious and absolutley beautiful...or should I say handsome! I never tire of seeing photos of him. I am off to check out your facebook page. Have a blessed weekend!

Hugs, Vicky

Ida said...

Time really does go by quickly. Caleb is growing indeed and is just so adorable. I love his sweet face and wish I could be there to give him a hug but I'm sure you'll do plenty of that for me. Enjoy these special moments.

Ashley said...

Awwww he's so precious! <3 I hope you get to feeling better and don't have any more colds! So happy for you that your sewing business is going so well, all of your items are just adorable.
