Happy Birthday Caleb

My second baby turns 3 tomorrow. Where did the time go?

I thought Id share a few of my favorite things about Caleb:

- His compassionate heart. If I make a noise like I hurt myself he always asks "ok mommy?" If you have to go to the Dr. he will always offer to hold your hand :)

- His love of books and being read to.

- His snuggles. He is our snugglebug.

- How he loves his sister and makes her laugh

- Watching him play with Noah. They are best friends and he looks up to Noah so much.

- He is his own person. Noah may want to play outside for 3 hrs but some days Caleb doesnt want to do so he wont. He just knows what he wants and he doesnt worry about following others. I love that.

- His laugh and all his goofy expressions

It was around this time, 3 years ago, that my wonderful labor with him began. We went through a lot during my pregnancy with kidney stones, xrays and lots of tears - and we were bonded more than I knew possible. He was my first child to birth without medication which was very special to me. He has brought us so much joy and so much hope!

Awww, Happy Birthday Big Guy!!! Where does the time go?! I vividly remember you announcing your pregnancy with him (with ferbit! LOL! Now that seems like ages ago). Hope you enjoy your day with him and your walk down memory lane.
