The meaning of Caleb's name

I found this meaning of Caleb the other day. It fits him perfectly (except the dog part).

Caleb is doing well. He is now getting 90 ccs every feeding (through his feeding tube). He is having problems with the bottle. This is normal for preemies. They are back to giving him a pacifier dipped in sugar water with every feeding. They are going to try put formula in something like this and see how he does.

He had a very good day yesterday. He spent 3 1/2 hours in his carseat (they try to put him in his seat everyday so he isn't just laying on his back all day) and he spent 3 1/2 hours in his swing. The nurse told me he was awake and looking around while he was in his swing.

I keep forgoting to take the digital camera to the hospital, so I don't have any new pictures today.

Caleb is now 19 1/2 inches long and weighs 10 pounds, 4 ounces. He is a little over 7 weeks old adjusted.

I don't know why it is you can't remember anything. NICU brain and preggo brain. GEEZ!! I'm glad to see things are going well. Hopefully stubborn will catch on to the bottle thing soon.

I think his name suits him well! Glad to hear progress in the right direction.
