Not James the Cable Guy!

The world’s cutest, sweetest most perfect baby boy. For real. Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Grandfather and bulldog, all doing well. Well….maybe the bulldog isn’t doing that well. Not being able to play with the new toy is a bit…unfair.

Babies aren’t that much work after all but they do require lots of staring at. I feel like I haven’t taken my eyes off him since he was born. It kind of hurts my eyes a little NOT to be staring at him. I remember that very same feeling when my own wild woman was born.

So that happened.

PS. The name change came suddenly and I have not been able to make the adjustment.  I am not alone. Everyone, including his mother, still calls him James even though she decided he wasn’t a James he’s a Kaleb. Which I am also not adjusting to very well, hence  Not James the Cable Guy.


  1. My heart is happy. Oh, Grandma- welcome to the best, best club in the world. He is just…everything beauty-full.
    Congratulations to all and especially to that Wild Woman.
    Yours so truly…Mary


  2. WOW!!! He’s magnificent! (Love that hat with the ‘ears’. 🙂

    Love to all.

    Bushels full. What a wonderful holiday you will have! – Karen


  3. Welcome, Kaleb! Oh, Yoiie! I am so happy for mother, grandmother, grandfather and great grandmother, and bulldog will adjust. If I recall, that required staring at the new baby were the most peaceful connected moments in my entire life. my heart is full for you all.


  4. OH he’s perfect and beautiful. What a face. Wonderful wonderful. And mama hardly broke a nail throughout it all, that must be a good sign.

    Was it today? Pearl Harbour Day? Our anniversary as well. Welcome to Kaleb, formerly known as James. James, his in utero name. Now he’s of the world. And congratulations to you all.
    Give that little one a hug from his internet admirers.
