six

Cal was born at the civilized time of 7:01pm after a relatively short and uneventful labor. He slept straight through his first month of life, and when he woke up he continued to like his sleep and has always known how to relax.

Since he has been old enough to talk he's requested shrimp and corn on his birthday. He is a lover of food and likes to accompany me to the grocery store, to ensure I buy what he'd like to eat. Blindfolded, he could name most ingredients in most dishes we eat. He hates chocolate.

His favorite color has always been pink.

He knows how to think about all sides of a problem, has a good understanding of how many things work, and at least once a day asks me a question I can't answer.

He is silly and fun loving and thoughtful and well liked.

We love you so much Cal. Enjoy being six!

And by the way, I'm glad I"m not the only one who has a child who requests non-child food for his/her birthday!d
