My baby's 5th birthday

Today is Caleb's 5th birthday. Happy Birthday, Caleb. It seems just like yesterday I was leaking water while I talked to my mom on the phone at 8PM on Sunday night. I told her we'd let her know what was going on. That night she and my sister drove four hours to make it in time for Caleb's birth - only to wait in the waiting room for 13 hours. Yes, I didn't have him until 1 PM Monday afternoon. He was slow a coming. :)

We celebrated today with cupcakes at school, then family time at Chuck E Cheese. Bryan was out of town, but I sent him lots of pictures. We'll celebrate again in two weeks when my family comes to see the Blue Angel's Homecoming show. We have purchased front row seats with food included. Yippee!! I should have some great pics after that.

One of our friends/co-teachers at preschool asked Caleb this morning if he had gotten a haircut. I said a week ago. She said he just looked older today. I must admit I'm teary eyed thinking about that right now. She didn't even know it was his birthday. How ironic. I thank God for him every day - even on those trying days.

He is my sweet, affectionate, touchy-feely child with my melancholy personality. Probably will be type A, and definitely serious-minded. He is always thinking, worrying about something - but sure knows how to be silly. We really are a lot alike. And, he is so photogenic. I love most pictures of him - so handsome and adorable.

Thank God for my five year old baby boy.

Happy Birthday (a day late), Caleb!! I couldn't remember the exact date, but I knew it was coming up. I hope we'll get to see you this week!
