today is your special day, caleb. 18 years ago i gave birth to you at home and welcomed you into this world. my only boy. the biggest of my babies at 11.5lbs and 24 inches long, you couldn't even wear the newborn clothes i had laid out for you. and how your two sisters adored you. i wore you constantly in the sling and i don't think your feet touched the ground until you were 2 years old. what a joy you have been every single day. your gentle spirit and sweet soul bring such joy to my life. how proud i am of the young man you have become. i love you so very much!
yours on this very special birth day,
