Today is the day Cal turns five.
Cal has been strong willed and fiercely independent, playful and silly since he came into this world. He has always had, shall we say, collector tendencies - filling his bed every night with every stuffed animal he owns, and many toys and books as well. Playing with balls has been a favorite activity since he could use his hands; now he's starting and loving his first season of soccer. He was born with an incredible ability to focus; with an intense interest in and understanding of how things work; with a strong spatial ability. Already I see him growing into a fine young man.
I love you so much, Cal, and always will. Happy birthday!
