To my 5 year old baby boy,
Words cannot describe how much I love you. I am so incredibly proud of you with how much you have endured in your short little life so far. You are a warrior, the yin to my yang, the calm to the storm, the rainbow to my rainy day, and I could never imagine myself without you. Here we are on your 5th birthday and I can’t believe how fast time flies. I know I am not the perfect Mom and I know you’ve seen me cry and yell and be on my phone, but I know you love me unconditionally through all my moods. The crazy thing is that in this life we think the parents are the ones teaching us everything. In reality, it’s the kids that teach us all about life and love. You have taught me about living, loving, being strong, and riding through the storm.
Back in November you started a growth hormone shot and you were so worried. Every night you are so brave as you squint your eyes embracing the shot. Your strength and ability to love is SO BIG and inpsiring. I could listen to your little raspy voice all day long. I could snuggle your little body against mine every single night for the rest of my life. You are amazing and I love you more everyday. Your little spirit and your big heart lights me up, baby boy. Don’t change for anyone. Keep exploring the beautiful world!
The way you light up when you see your sister melts me every single time and while I know it won’t last, I am so proud of your heart and all the love you have inside of it. I hope you have a magical birthday!!! Mama can’t believe you are 5 years old!! SHINE BRIGHT BABY! I love you a million skies.
