New Addition to the Family!


Chubby Cheeks

Meeting Baby Brother

Vital Stats


Beautiful Mom!


First Sleep

Jean, Caleb, and I welcomed Coby Park to the world yesterday morning. He came in at a hefty 9 lbs. 7 ozs. and is ready to take on the world. Caleb was very nice to his new baby brother and already knows his name. God is good all the time, but sometimes He goes overboard and blesses you with a healthy baby!

Jean and I aren't much for posting on blogs but Coby deserves it!
Hope everyone reading this is enjoying Christmas season and being in the presence of family and friends.

peekaboo~

We had lunch at the Grove with a few people the other week. While we were hanging out, Jennifer kept Caleb amused with a game of peekaboo. I had never seen Caleb laugh so much. It was amazing to see the purity of his laugh. Babies are so good at empathizing. When you laugh, they laugh. When another baby cries, they cry. I hope Caleb never loses the ability to empathize with others.

the golden age

I've heard that 4 months of age is the "golden age" for a baby. This is the age when they smile and laugh a lot, are more social and responsive, and still can't move around too much. Caleb has been a true joy. His smile brightens up my mood, no matter how I'm feeling. Although he doesn't really have stranger anxiety just yet, he is a bit more reserved around others. I wish he would share the joy with more people...I guess David and I are very blessed though. :)

happy 백일 (100 day)!


Caleb turned 100 days last week, and we spent this special time in Houston with my in-laws. I think in Korean culture, it's a big deal for a baby to turn 100 days because back in the day, it was truly a blessing for a baby to survive that long. I'm definitely grateful to be past the "hardest part" (so people say). It's ironic though because I feel like it's just getting harder. I don't necessarily feel like I'm getting better as a parent, but I feel like it's getting more difficult. Maybe it's like the paradox of knowledge--the more you know, the more you realize that there's way more that you don't know. I guess that's why I need God's grace. 

Anyway, we had lots of good food and great times with my in-laws.

big boy~

(Caleb after lifting weights at Gold's Gym in Venice Beach)

Caleb has grown so much...especially in the past couple weeks. One day his sleep sack fit him, then the next it didn't. Having a big healthy child is such a blessing, but my arm muscles are having a hard time keeping up. I can see why moms are so buff.

I've been fighting a sore throat and bad cough for the past week. Thankfully, David and Caleb were spared from it. I think my body is having a hard time fighting it because I don't get enough sleep. I can't imagine having babies back to back...when do you ever get to catch up on sleep? Women like Michelle Duggar are amazing. (http://www.duggarfamily.com/) More power to them. I think I'll just have 3...or 4. :)

2 months

Two months have passed since Caleb's birth. Each day that goes by, it just gets better and better. He smiles more regularly, "talks" a lot, and makes us laugh with his wrinkly "benjamin button" face. He celebrated his first Easter this past Sunday, and also met his cousin Charlotte for the first time. My sister gave birth to Charlotte on 4/7/09. It's going to be so much fun seeing them grow up together.

cooing

So I did get to capture on video the cooing I mentioned in my previous post. Whenever he makes these noises, my heart melts. He also gives me a smile once in a while to say "thank you" for waking up every two hours to feed him in the night (or so I would like to believe...it's probably him just passing gas).
