I'm not sure how this day is already here, but we've blinked a few times and our sweet baby boy is 16 today. Thank you for indulging me today as I gush and share about our boy...he is the "dimples" in Dimples and Tangles, after all!
Truly, when you're in the thick of raising babies and toddlers and hear others say "Enjoy this time, it goes by all too fast..." it's hard to see more than 5 minutes ahead of you and believe them. But as our children grow older, it's all too true. This time is fleeting.
This boy... I can't even tell you how my heart melts and bursts with pride at the same time at the thought of him.
Those cheeks! Those little fingers!
We often receive compliments from friends about Caleb's sweet personality, responsibility, and kindness he shows towards others. As nice as those are to hear, it's even more meaningful to me that he displays all of those characteristics at home, when no one is watching. He does whatever is asked of him, usually right away and without a hint of a complaint. He's always willing to pitch in with whatever we ask, and does the task with a happy heart.
He is loyal and committed to finish what he starts, and always considerate of others. He's a pleaser!
As we cross milestone after milestone, I'm just so grateful for the fine young man he is becoming.
We could not be more proud of or more thankful for this boy, the Lord has given us a priceless treasure in him.
Caleb, we continue to pray Joshua 14:8 for you, which we claimed for you as we chose your name, that you would live a life faithful and obedient to the Lord, wholly following Him. We love you, son.
