A Letter to My Son

Dear Caleb Boy,

I can't believe you are 8!  I still remember your birth like it was yesterday.  I was so scared, and nervous, and excited, and anxious...all wrapped up in one!  You took forever to make your appearance, but I remember the first time those sweet little eyes looked up at me.  All of the stress from the day melted away, and the reality of I am a mom! set in.  You made me a momma!

 I am so proud of the little man you are becoming.  You are a kind, compassionate, quirky guy who loves God, 

Star Wars (perhaps it would be better described as an obsession!), 


and your family.  

You're still quite a hugger, which I love, and you promise me that you will never be too old to give me a hug and a kiss goodbye!  I'm gonna hold you to it!  

Our life isn't easy at times and I don't pretend that Abby's frequent hospitalizations aren't hard on you.  But you handle it so well, Buddy.  And to say you adore your sister is an understatement!  I love watching you with her.  The two of you have such a special bond.

 I love you, Caleb.  You're my favorite little boy!  Happy birthday!
