Now he is grown up, sworn in and moving on to his life as an adult.
|Should I share baby pics of him?|
My husband was a Marine when he was born. We lived off base so that is how he ended up being born on the Air Force base instead of Camp Pendleton as his younger brother was.
|He was a cute, sweet baby. He slept through the night right away and has always had a sunny disposition.|
We are very proud that he has chosen to serve our country. He will be trained as a jet engine mechanic and plans to continue school and hopefully get his engineering degree. He better be an engineer after all of the things he has taken apart in his life. When he was three he took apart his tricycle and his brother's crib to help him escape.
|I will miss having him try to boss me around. We are both firstborns and can get into some interesting bossing fights.|
I did not break down and cry but I did have a hard time smiling for the camera. My son and I are buds. I was only 18 when he was born and sometimes I feel like we grew up together.
|Look how short I am next to these peeps. Hubby is standing on the step behind us. He is actually starting to look short next to our sons. Don't tell anyone I said that!|
He is already missed by everyone. I can't wait to see him again when he graduates next January. I'm trying very hard not to think about what he is going through tonight. It's hard for a mom to think about her baby boy going through bootcamp. I know he's been looking forward to this challenge for months.
|We love you Caleb!|
I still can't believe one of my children is out in the world on his own. I feel old. Good thing I have a three year old to help me feel younger. Maybe I should have another baby?
