|Birdwatching at the Glass House. Such a special place to call our (temporary) home.|
Caleb is smart, funny, kind and very loving. I'm sure all parents say those things, but it is true. His little personality is also revealing itself to be very detail oriented. He loves to draw and play lego, and can play for hours on his own, completely absorbed in the task at hand. But he does want things done a certain way. If he draws a circle, the ends must match up, or else he'll start again. He is super imaginative. We now have our first official imaginary friend - a tiger that sleeps on our stairs who we need to be very quiet around and always tiptoe up and down the staircase. We've decided that he is a friendly tiger and have named him 'Silly'. We also play games like 'make up a song about .....' and he is great at it. He's written some hits about stop signs, trees and dinosaurs (here is a classic - dinosaur, dinosaur, I love you, ya. You are so big, dinosaur, I want to hold your hand, but you don't have a hand, dinosaur ya, I will hold your tail, yaaaaaaa).
We had a wonderful birthday party for him this weekend in Fredericton. Lots of family and friends. I had asked that people not worry about bringing gifts, or just something small if they really wanted to. Then, in walks our family friend 'Uncle' Eric Leblanc with a tractor, and not just any tractor (see below)! It is HUGE, but amazing and Alan admitted that was the exact toy he had wanted for most of his childhood, so I'm sure it is something that Cale will love for many years to come.
Tomorrow we are hoping to do something special for him, but he is quiet sick with a cold today. I knew it was a no school day, when he broke into tears after refusing to eat some apple sauce and said 'I just don't know what will ever make me better'. Poor fella. If he does feel better, I think we'll take him skating on one of the many small frozen ponds around Duncan's Cove.
