Caleb Is Two!

Last year, Rachel posted 28 pictures for my 28th birthday on her blog.  I thought I’d steal that idea and post a picture for each year of Caleb’s life on his birthday!

Wow…wasn’t that moving?
OK, so maybe not as impressive as 28 photos.

The first pic was taken the day we brought him home from the hospital.
The other one is from this morning while he ate his favorite breakfast, pancakes.

Two years ago this morning…
It was a Sunday morning.
It was a Chargers bye week. (Pathetic I know that, eh?)
It was exactly a week after his cousin Ryan was born.
Rachel was in labor for around 8 hours.
This bald little boy entered the world just after 6am.
My world was rocked and my life was changed forever.

No real deep thoughts on it today. Just to say, even when it’s tough, even when it’s frustrating, even when I want to throw him out the window, I wouldn’t change being his daddy for anything in the world.  I love this kid more than I ever thought I could love anything or anyone, and he has changed me.

And I better keep that all in mind cause now it’s time for the terrible twos!!  Which I actually think he got a head start on, by the way.
And tomorrow we find out if he’ll have a little sister or brother.
We’re blessed.

Happy Birthday Caleb Genesis!

And just for fun, a few of my favorite past posts about Caleb and fatherhood:
