Only his parents could know...

So these are the watertowers (or water tanks?) of Las Cruces.  The picture is a post card that Hope and Barry, Brandon's parents, sent us when they were traveling through the state.  The one in the top right corner is just outside our neighborhood.  Its mural depicts either the wagon trains on the Santa Fe trail or the Camino Real.  I am not sure which. 

That water tank means a lot to our little boy. 

As Caleb's vocabulary is increasing, there are so many things that he says and does that only his parents would ever understand.  An example is that watertower.  It can be seen from quite a distance...and whenever Caleb sees it, he starts pointing and getting really excited...

"Miiiiiiiieeeeee!  Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!"

I respond, "Yes, sweetheart."


"Yeah, little one, we are almost home.  We're going to see Millie!"

For Caleb, that watertower means Millie (our cat) which means home to him.  Mi-ee is Caleb's word for both our cat and our home.  No one else could ever understand what he is saying... 

We really are so blessed to have this little guy in our lives.
