Today is Caleb's birthday; he is turning 18.
March 24th being his birthday was actually quite a bit of a surprise for everyone since he wan't due until the end of April!
I just had the feeling that something wasn't quite right when I woke up that morning, so Mister G suggested we run by the hospital before he went to work and have the baby's heart rate checked out. Imagine our surprise when the hospital staff informed us that we would be having our baby that day!
Caleb was born 5-1/2 weeks early, which is a very long time in the world of newborn babies. He was barely 5 lbs and fit into the palm of Mister G's hand. We stayed in the hospital for a week after he was born.
Now he is all grown up and getting ready to graduate high school and go off to college and I will have no more babies at home. Tonight we will celebrate with ice cream cake and presents (he got cargo shorts, headphones, fast food gift cards, and a running armband for him mp3 player...SSSHHHH! Don't tell him if you see him!).
To me, he will always be my "baby".
