To my sweet boy-
I love you because you love all.
I love you for your spirit, your sweetness.
I love it when you see a metro bus you point to it and say, “Mama!” because you know I take the bus to work.
I love that you have red hair and blue eyes, just like your Grandma S.
I love that when something is broken you want me to fix it with tape, even flat tires.
I love that you kiss your own boo-boos.
I love you because you love your Uncle Matt soooo much you want to give him apples all the time.
I love you because you love all animals.
I love you because you are so compassionate.
I love you because you are so smart.
I love that you love trucks but that you still call them cars.
I love because you and I play together and laugh together.
I love to hear you suck on your fingers for comfort.
I love that you tug on our ears for comfort including your 3-yr old cousin who doesn’t understand why you want his ear.
I love to see you run with excitement.
I love to hear you talk.
I love that there are some words I still don’t understand.
I love to hear you laugh.
I love that you love taking walks and being outside.
I love you because you remind me and show me the beauty that surrounds us. That life is grand.
I love that when you see sharp things or things you shouldn't touch you say, "big no-no!"
I love that when you see the blender you say, "loud" and cover your ears.
I love you because you have opinions.
I love that you’re happy.
I love you because you’re YOU.
Not a day goes by when I don’t thank God for every moment with you. You have made life more fulfilling and more meaningful. You may be only two but you have taught me so much and I love you for that.
Happy birthday sweet Caleb.
