11 YEARS OLD!

Dear Caleb,
It appears that you are so awesome, you have pulled me out of blogger hibernation. We will talk about that much later because today is YOUR day.

When you were born, dad and I wanted to name you Caleb because we LOVED the name. Then we looked up the meaning of the name we saw "bold and impetuous". We looked at each other for a moment and then thought maybe you would be a good balance for your then 5 year old, quiet brother. For a while, I thought you didn't really fit your name because you are so even keel and not easily rocked. But, I have seen this boldness emerge in you that I didn't expect to see. It's not the "bold and impetuous" that I expected, but a quiet confidence and sense of adventure that is always brewing underneath. You aren't afraid of much at all.

One thing that I love about you is your attachment to the unexpected and your 100% focus and devotion to that thing. You are very one-track minded and you immerse yourself into something completely until you are done with it, then you move on to the next thing. However, you never leave your previous objects of affection behind. They remain a part of your life, but your focus turns to something else completely. It's a very, VERY cool trait about you. Last year at this time, you were into wall ball and I couldn't get you to stop. Now, you still carry your ball to school to play, but hardly ever do it here. For months, you have been into skateboarding and have great aspirations to become a professional skater someday, but the FOCUS has died down to allow for your current passion....CAKE BOSS. Yes, the show. You have been recording it and watching every episode. We've been inundated with talk of fondant and royal icing. Of course you would love this show! It's all about sugar.

You joined band this year and dad and I were quite surprised that you picked the trombone. It's pretty cool that you picked this instrument because a. your dad played when he was younger and b. we still have his trombone and didn't have to rent one. :) I honestly thought that your first concert would be a musical disaster, but was very pleasantly surprised at how great you all were and YOU were awesome. I honestly can't wait for your next concert. It's not surprising though that you plan to switch to drums when you get into middle school band...following in your brother's footsteps. You are actually very good on his drum set. But do you want to take drum lessons? No...you are dying to play the electric guitar.

I just think you are so great. You are definitely one of a kind and really bring a great balance to our family. You seem to mesh with everyone in some special way and yet you don't ever come out to the forefront. However, you are greatly missed when you aren't here...you leave a hole that makes us all feel incomplete. It's going to be really tough when you pack up your bags for college one day...but let's not think that far ahead. You are, after all, only 11.

Thank you for 11 wonderful years of making my role as "mom" that much better. Happy Birthday!

I love you!
Mom
