I Have a 14 Year Old

Posted: July 29, 2010 in Family

Today is my firstborn son’s birthday!!  He is 14 years old.  He has bigger feet than me.  He is taller than me.  He has more hair than me.  He is better looking than me.  And yet…I still let him live and continue to love him. 🙂  Happy Birthday Isaac.  I love you and I’m VERY proud of you.  You are our joy and laughter.

Facts about Isaac:

  • He hates gum (especially mint).  Like he freaks out if anyone chews it in front of him.
  • He gets along well with his little brother and sister.
  • He is good with our new puppy.

  • He likes the Cubs and Notre Dame…just as I taught him.
  • He drops and spills more things than anyone I’ve ever seen!!! 🙂

    His personal traits sound like half Kelly, half Sam, which equals all Caleb.Thank you lord for Caleb!

  2. He probably drops things because one time he broke his finger and his parents didn’t believe him and now it’s all jacked up. So really, the dropping things? It’s your fault!

    14 years ago today I got a call from Texas telling me that I was a grandpa. It was an awesome feeling. This kid continues to make me very proud. I can’t wait to see what he does in the next 14 years. Happy Birthday, Isaac. I love you.
