My family is a nickname kind of family. And our little guy, Silas McCoy, is our Dolly Boy and our Treasure Boy. He’s our Si Guy. He’s our Caboose; although he mostly goes by Goose, but sometimes Goose Goose Caboose. He’s a crack-up and he knows it. He’s a sporty little guy and loves the attention he gets when he starts kicking that soccer ball around like the little spanish boys taught him. He acts like he’s tough but he knows and we know that he loves his sisters’ attention and how we lavish him with kisses. Goose and I have our own traditions like reading aloud to each other or racing to be the first person to say I think you’re great each morning. The night before Caboose was born, my older brother and I joked about how great it would be if he was born that night and sure enough we woke up and had a little brother at 11:11 am!! We wished him here;) He’s my favorite 9-now-10 year old boy and I’m going to miss seeing his jagged toothy smile everyday! Happy birthday Mr. Si Guy!!
