I am in awe that I am sitting down to write a birthday post for you turning three. Seems like just yesterday I was sitting in the hospital with you. I remember every single detail like it was yesterday-we were alittle nervous because we were going to a hospital that we had never been to before which turned out to be the best decision ever! We walked in first thing that morning and had a huge room that was about 6 times the size of a regular hospital room. I didn't labor long with you at all before the nurse figured out that when I told her I had short labors I wasn't playing around. The doctor came in and you were turned the opposite way you should be. It was a sort of panicked moment as he sat at the end of the bed and manually worked for about 20 minutes to turn you. When he got you turned there was no stopping you-no time to prepare for anything because out you came. I will forever remember the moment I first saw you. The first time your Daddy held you in his arms is one of my most cherished moments in life. We soaked you up those first few days. It was so nice to be at the hospital just the three of us. We were able to spend time with just you one on one without all the crazy noise and everyone else around. Those were three of my most favorite days ever! We had you all to ourselves and I don't believe you were put down for more than a few moments the entire time. Your Daddy and I actually argued over who was going to be able to hold you or feed you the next time. We finally had to take turns because we both wanted you so badly.
I am so blessed to have you in my life. I am blessed to be called your mommy and will forever remain grateful to the Lord above for putting you in my life. I know there are days I get stressed and yell at you-we all have those moments I suppose but don't you ever forget that no matter what I will always be here for you. No matter the circumstance or the time of day or night you can call me or come to me. I will always be your number one fan and do anything in this world for you! You will always have me in your corner. I love you Caleb and I'm incredibly proud of the big boy you are becoming!
