my Caleb

I feel like I haven't said enough about my first born lately. He really is such a sweet boy. Since I'm his mama, I wanted to sing some of his latest praises. :) In school he's been learning to read using sight words. So far, he can recognize several words like "I" "and" "car" "see" "cat" "dog" and a few others that his teacher hasn't sent home yet. If I ask him to find a specific word in a choice of 3 words, he will pick the right one. Of course, he is motivated by M&Ms so that helps coax him into working. Whatever works, right?!

Tonight Caleb and I danced in the kitchen to a few of our favorite songs. He's about as tall as my waistline so he leaned his head on my tummy and we rocked back and forth to the music.
It was a moment that I want to remember forever. 
Very sweet. 
A Caleb & Mom moment. 

Sometimes with my other kids, I'm running back and forth catering to their needs when Caleb is so patient to wait for what he wants.  He will often just point to what he wants so sometimes I dont catch on right away. He definitely teaches me patience and teaches me to be a happier Mom. He responds so well to me when I take a more gentle and happy approach. Who knew, right? He's a good boy that brings happiness to everyone around him. 

Here's a cute video of one of Caleb's favorite things in the world...riding the bus!

I love you sweet Caleb!

I really love that boy. He always has a smile for me in primary. I love that I can just say "Hey Caleb" and he just grins from ear to ear. Your very lucky to have such a sweet boy.

Such a cute boy. I love how each child can teach us something different and give us multiple perspectives. You are a good mommy.
