Caleb is 3!

Caleb turned 3 today and we have gone to Curacao to celebrate. He'll get lots of sun, sand and hammock time as befits an on-the-go three year old who seldom finds time for quality rest and relaxation. We took cupcakes to his school where he wore a birthday crown and was sung Feliz Cumpleanos. His teacher asked me if we celebrated turning 3 with a trip to a Caribbean island, what in the world would his gift be when he turns 18!! Only 15 more years until we find out.

When Caleb was born, our lives changed forever. We became people our younger selves would not have recognized who delighted in reading board books, playing enless games of peek-a-boo, learning the lyrics to every song Disney ever composed and generally making fools of ourselves trying to encourage smiles and giggles from our little boy. He is joy personified and we are lucky to be his parents. A Caleb-filled future looks brighter than we ever imagined and we are eagar for it's unfolding.


Stay tuned for pictures of Curacao and Caleb when we get home from our Caribbean getaway!

I'm so glad I'm not his aunt because I would seriously go up to him every time I saw him, pinch his cheeks, and smother him with cutie kisses. He is adorable! *Mwah from auntie Mimi* :)

Happy Birthday Caleb from Arizona. I think you should complain that you didn't get a trip to a Caribbean island.

Happy birthday, indeed! I turn 33 this year. I might make it to downtown SLC. Alas, no beaches there. Hope your trip is as fun as it sounds.

Have a great time in Curacao Caleb. I'm sure that you will find the slavery museum incredibly interesting. Oh yeah, tell your parents to let you swim with the dolphins.

Love, Heather, Carlos and Sebastian

Happy Birthday to your little man! Now the real parenting adventure begins.. Three was tough for me but you seem more together than I am so you will probably sail through it all.

If not, you can escape again to the Caribbean, right?

Is the iPhone and iPod Touch with a telephone? I ask because the Touch seems to get nothing but rave reviews, but I seem a lot of complaints and grumbling about the iPhone.
