Happy Birthday! In a blink of an eye, you went from a sweet helpless newborn to a just-as-sweet, self-sufficient six-year old. There have been so many changes you in this past year alone, both physical and emotion—from losing your first (and second!) tooth and growing three inches to seeing you make your own breakfast and take a shower all by yourself. As I look through the pictures from just this past year alone, I am in awe of the changes that I see. Your face has thinned and you look more like a boy and less like the cherubic toddler you once were. I know I can’t keep you from growing up, but I am not sure I am quite ready to accept how much you have grown. It is bittersweet as I love the independent person you are becoming, but I do sometime miss those crazy toddler days that just seemed to fly by at warp speed!
Again, happy birthday my dear sweet boy! Now, if I could only figure out how to freeze time…
I hope that you will continue on and read the next wonderful letter by Stacy Loveridge in our “Letters to Our Children” blog circle!
