5 years old
5 years ago, this little guy made me a mom.
My dearest Joshua,
When I look at your baby photos, which I do often, I marvel at your sweet, happy little face with vibrant blue eyes. I usually say, "I miss that little baby!" You were an amazing first baby...absolutely perfect.
But now your a big boy and things have started to change. You have opinions and attitudes and feelings that don't always fit with mine. You are turning into a real person, someone that I can converse with and laugh with. Some of my favorite moments are spent in your company, especially before bed. We read stories, then snuggle and talk about the day. I love your sense of humor and the way you throw your head back and laugh when something hits you the right way. I am respectful of your desire to learn and read. I will always encourage you and hope that you continue to search for something new to learn. I am impressed that you can work our TV Media Center better than me. I am touched every time I see you playing with Kaylee and Gracie, making them giggle.
Happy Birthday, my love.
