Caleb turned seven at 2:12am this morning. Where has the time gone? It has been so much fun watching him grow over these past 7 years.
A couple of days ago, Caleb was talking to Levi and mentioned that he understood that Levi loved Mommy very much just like he used to when he was a baby. I teased him for not loving me anymore, but went on to assure him that I understood what he was saying -- that he was growing up and didn't need me like Levi does anymore. He mentioned that we should have a Mommy/Caleb day. When I asked him what he wanted to do, he suggested going to IHOP. Levi was allowed to go since he is still a baby. This morning I woke Caleb up early (before Daddy was supposed to go to work) and we went for a birthday breakfast. It was so nice and calm having some special time with him while Levi slept. We arrived home to find Daddy and Josiah still sleeping.
I can hardly wait to see his face this afternoon when RyAnn, Brock, and Braxton walk through the door. It is going to be so much fun!
