This is for Caeden.The one who just turned 7.
The one who loves to graph anything.
Who plays hours on end by himself with a box and his imagination.
Who can build a complex Lego set without the slightest of help.
The one who I held in my arms 7 years ago, knowing in that instant, my life had actually just begun.
The little boy who has excellent manners and who has a collection of baseball caps in the works.
The one who just lost his front tooth and the one who has the prettiest grey-blue eyes.
The one who is so dang wonderful to his sister and everyone else lucky enough to call him a friend.
The one who asked to go to Texas Roadhouse for his birthday dinner because he wanted to throw peanuts on the floor (we couldn’t) but who ordered a steak because, well, he could do pretty much what he wanted.
Who requested a strawberry cake with a Bronco for decoration. Who loved the pendent that Mimi made and sent to give it a finishing touch.
Who ate more sugar these past 2 days than is even remotely okay.
Who was lucky enough to host his birthday party at the Elks Theatre in downtown Rapid City.
Got the entire place to ourselves and even our own concession stand.
Who was surrounded by friends and family who loved on him like crazy.
The one who got a little back of what he gives every single day.
And if you know him at all, you know he deserved every bit of it.
Happy Birthday to my sweet boy.
The one who makes me proud every single day.
