The Middle Child

Caid is my middle child.  The most calmest of the three, being both kind and gentle and loving.  When he was younger, he’d introduce himself to new friends as the “good kid” of the family.  Most of the time I agreed with that statement.  Caid is also my most cautious kid, – planning out every step before he takes it and asking lots of questions in the process.   He is a perfectionist by nature and strives to get things right the first time, much like his momma.

Caid is graduating from the 8th grade this year and I was asked to provide some photos from his childhood.  I’ll be honest, a few tears were shed looking back at my little guy.

From the days when he wore his dinner rather than eating it:

To when he got older and showed his little brother how to properly attend to his hygiene:

And when his love of guns, history, camo Crocs, and determined attitude started to make their appearance:

Caid is destined for great things and I’m so excited to watch him grow.  I’m beyond proud of him as his momma and hope that each and every day, he knows this.
