Caleb made me a mom. As I have been sitting here thinking about what I would write, I don’t know what to not write. He is such a sweet, sweet boy. My heart swells with pride. Caleb has a gentle spirit and loves to help others. He is always complimenting and thanking those he loves. Just today I heard blocks banging in the living room. I walked in to see who was pouring them out, and it was actually Caleb picking them up that was creating the sound. He turns to see me and says, “I just wanted to help you.” What!? As sweet as he is, he is also the funniest kid I know. He is hilarious and can crack jokes that leave us dying laughing. Matt and I say all the time how we could see him as a comedian someday. He has a curious spirit that loves to know and explore. He likes to figure things out and be really active. He loves to play sports, dig in the dirt, and work with tools to create things. He is incredibly creative and can think and create projects that leave me wondering “How did he think to do that!?” He is a cool kid. I am incredibly proud with how smart he is. He knows how to tell time and is doing an incredible job learning to read on top of my bad and often really wordy explanations of rules. I often tell him how he is one of my best friends and that it is a complete joy to be able to hang out with him all day everyday. I love this kid. On top of everything, I am most proud of his humility and realness. One of my favorite moments with him is listening to him pray. He loves Jesus and strives to live a life of love. He is my daily reminder that life is not perfect but it is good. What a masterpiece God has made in Caleb.
