Bragging on my child

I want to just take a minute (okay, maybe more than 1 minute) and BRAG about my little boy, Caleb.
I take SO much pride in this kid and I mostly chalk it up to the fact that I was a single mom from the time I was 3 months pregnant until Casey came into the picture when Caleb was almost 3. I believe the 1st couple years of a kids life are very curial. They see and do everything you are doing and pick up habits and start to really form their personality. When he was younger (and even now) I always made sure to tell him I love him every couple hours, to hug hello and goodbye no matter how long I would be gone, and to always have fun and to laugh. These are all things Caleb has picked up along the way. Sure, I yelled and I lost my temper (probably more than most) and he picked up some of these traits too (oops) but when he says something clever or tells me he loves you out of the blue, I forget all about the "bad" traits he learned from me.
Caleb is one of the funniest little people I have ever met in my life. He constantly has me laughing and also kind of jealous of his wittiness. At 1st I thought, maybe I am the only one that thinks he is funny... but to see how he makes his grandparents laugh, my nieces, my friends and even random strangers just goes to prove that he really is a funny little kid! He might never be class president but I could totally see him being the class clown, I mean just look at this face!!!
Besides being a riot, he is one of the sweetest little boys you will ever meet. My sister (well everyone) says he is a BIG Momma's boy and I am totally okay with that. Case in point, last night he spent the night with my sister and after 10 minutes of being away from me, he sent me the video below from my nieces phone. He is always making sure that everyone around him knows that he loves them, that they are pretty (or handsome), and that he cares about them. The compliments this little boy gives, makes me not worry about the type of man he will turn out to be. One day he will make some lady very lucky just because he is able to tell her how beautiful she is without skipping a beat... This is, if he ever decides to move out and changes his mind about wanting to marry me!

I love that he has a great sense of humor and that he LOVES to love people... but my favorite thing about Caleb would have to be that he has a giving heart. I have always said that when I die I want people to remember me for being a person who is giving, someone who would give you the shirt off my back if you needed it, someone who would bend over backwards to help a friend out, someone who cares about other peoples needs. After I found out I was pregnant back in 2009, I prayed that my child would have a giving heart... God answered that prayer times ten! Caleb is always looking to help people out, mostly me (letting me sleep during my pregnancy, carrying stuff in from the car, working on my many projects, holding the door open for me, etc.). He ask me each morning if we can pray for his friends at school and for his family (all of them) by name. He is also always wanting to buy/make stuff for other people... he received a gift card the other day and the 1st thing he said he wanted to buy was some pink flowers for him Mimi's grave. Seriously, how sweet is that!! The picture below is him working in the garage making his favorite cousins (Maddy and Audy) pictures for their room to make them smile when they are sad. I told him he was a good kid and he replied "tell me something I don't already know!" Haha!! I could go on and on about how caring he is, I am so proud of him!!

Caleb Scott Lassiter, I know you cant read this (because I wont let you on the computer and because you don't know how to read yet, lol) but I love you more than you will ever know. You saved my life when I didn't even know I needed to be saved. You made me a Momma and that is something I will always be grateful for. I cherish our loving, fun, sweet relationship and promise to never take it for granted. You are my sunshine and my baby boy. I love you to the moon and back!!!
