Well sweet boy, today you turn 4 years old.
I can remember, as if it was yesterday, the moment you came into this world. A wonderful, magical, breath taking moment. I will never forget the first time I saw your little face. The instant connection, the intense love. Since that moment, you have been my best friend, my little buddy. I love you more than you could ever know and more than I could ever attempt to express. You fill my hear with so much joy and I am beyond blessed to be able to call you my son. Four amazing, spectacular years. Four years...
Oh how time flies indeed. I remember your first word, your first taste of real food, your first attempt at crawling, your first tooth, your first step, and the first time you called my name. Mama. You made me a mother and it has been a journey beyond my wildest dreams. Everyday with you is new and exciting. Watching you learn and interact with the world around you.
You are so big now and so incredibly smart. As you start this new year I can not imagine what may lay ahead. I bet this year will be the year that you learn to read, you will start school, and start soccer. Your social skills will take off and you will grow even more. I am so proud of you. So very proud.
You have blossomed from my tiny baby, to this young boy who has stolen my heart.
We play together, learn together, laugh together and even cry together. We sing and talk and read together. We worship Jesus together. You and me.
I know I tell you this ALL the time, but I want you to know, no matter how big or old or tall or brilliant you become, you will always always always be my baby. You are my first born. You taught me how to change diapers, how to feed you, how to do everything mommy. You....
I could go on and on, but know I love you with every beat of my heart. From before I knew you I have loved you and that love has only grown.
Happy birthday baby. Happy wonderful birthday.
