Where have I been for the last 6 years??!
Happy 6th Birthday to my amazing, sensitive, funny, beautiful, incredibly intelligent, outgoing, loving Little Boy. I can't even begin to tell you how much joy you have brought to my life over the last 6 years. I have never cried, laughed, drank or had as many anxiety attacks as I have since welcoming you into my arms at 6:12am, July 3rd, 2005.
I haven't had a solid nights sleep since you were born. I never stop worrying about you. Never stop wanting to protect you. I love watching you turn into a young man, with your own opinions and feelings. I love that you still ask me to cuddle with you on the couch, yet have no problem establishing your independence when there is something you don't want to do.
I love how you treat everyone equally. You know no evil in the world. I love how you try to see the best in every situation. I love how forgiving you are, even to people who may not deserve it (myself included). I love your fearlessness. I love to see how easily you make new friends. I love to see how each new day brings excitement to your eyes. I love to see your desire to please others.
I am so in love with you, that it almost breaks my heart. I feel lucky to be your mother. I am proud to call you my son.
You are truly a miracle. The world became more blessed the day you arrived in it.
You will hold my heart forever.
