dear little dude-
i'm not really even sure what to say. first of all, i cannot believe that you're actually 5 years old. that sort of feels like a major cut-off point for me. like i really can't get away with calling you my baby anymore. you're no longer a toddler, you're officially a kid. a big kid. that's crazy.
i went back and read what i wrote on your birthday last year. it still pretty much sums you up. you're still the kid all the moms talk about. they talk about how well behaved you are. they talk about your gorgeous eyes. they talk about the crazy grown-up language you use. most of all, they talk about how there's just something special about you. i don't think anyone can quite put their finger on what it is, but everyone notices. you have an amazing sensitive soul and are well beyond your years in knowledge. people are drawn to you wherever we go.
maybe you were made so extra special because we had to wait more than 3 years for you. that's what i like to think. it's our little something extra for being patient and waiting.....for the perfect one. you will always be our miracle no matter how old you get. we love you so very much.
happy birthday little man.
