As I sit here reminiscing, I just cannot believe it has been 5 years. How can you fit so much love, so many priceless moments in just 5 years? It feels impossible! I remember everything… every inch from your tiny little toes to your wrinkled little forehead… every milestone from your first smile on Christmas day 2007 to your first steps, to reading. My oh my, you have grown!
From the moment you were out, blue and quiet, everything changed. It was all about you, I was no longer the star of the show, you were…
We had a rough start together. You never wanted to miss a thing and were awake and alert all the time and I struggled with the labor recovery and exhaustion.
But as you grew, fast and furious, we started seeing glimpses of your little personality forming.
You were quite the charmer, just look at that smile!
Of course with growing come the challenges… I would be lying if I said they were easy… they were not, but they were worth it! Every tear, every fight, was worth it!
You made me think outside the box every step of the way. Nothing was ever easy, but we always managed!
As you grew into a little boy you developed a love for topics that were unlikely for your age:
The solar system
The presidents on the bills
You became your own little person, one of which I am so very proud off. You may have more stacked up against you and at times it may be hard to focus, but you always pull through and keep on trucking. You are here to change the world, I have known it since you were born and every year it becomes more apparent that I was right!
You were fearfully and wonderfully made.
Happy birthday Bubba!!
