On February 12, 2008, Caleb celebrated his 7th birthday!! When Caleb was born he was not breathing & his only sign of life was a heartbeat of 40. After 7-1/2 minutes, God graciously chose to give him to us & we are very thankful & give glory to God that He did. Caleb has been through alot in his 7 years with us: his birth, he was born with a submucousal cleft palate & had corrective surgery, he has had numerous operations for tubes in his ears, has had a year of speech therapy, spent a week in the hospital in 2004 with an unknown virus... Through it all God has been faithful to our family. We love him very much!
On Sunday, February 10, 2008, we had Caleb's party, we were blessed to have our dear friends the Silliman's, as well as Papa & Caleb's cousins & aunt.
We have a tradition in our family for birthdays, on your birthday you get to choose the dinner meal. Caleb chose to have stir-fry noodles with shrimp, chicken & beef (also known as "Daddy's noodles") , potstickers & egg-drop soup. Here are some pictures of the family preparing Caleb's dinner.
