'Round here, they celebrate Golden Birthdays. What's a Golden Birthday you ask? A golden birthday is when you're age matches the day of the month you were born on. Take me for example, my birthday falls on the 20th so my golden birthday was when I turned 20. The way the calendar fell that year, I thought it was a pretty special day. At that time I was in college and had never heard of Golden Birthdays.
Twelve years ago, this little boy was born in Texas where his daddy was stationed in the Air Force. My parents drove out for his birth. About a month later, I got to fly out to meet my first nephew. I wish I could find the picture of me laying on the couch and him laying on my chest. It was so fun to love on him. This picture will have to do. It must have been taken around the 7th month mark.
Twelve years later, I have a handsome nephew that I don't get to see nearly enough. Here he is with his mom about a year ago.
It's not just any old Golden Birthday. It's not just that he's turning 12 on the 12th. Oh, it's way cooler than that and way cooler than my 20th birthday. Kaleb is turning 12 on 12-12-12! Happy Triple-golden birthday Kaleb. It will be quite a while before any sees a repeating birthday like this! What a special day for a special nephew of mine. I love you Kaleb!
