Six years. I can’t believe it really, as I always tell you-I still think you’re my baby. Alas, six years have passed and you are every bit a young man and no more baby at all.
Six years ago he came into my life and brought an almost suffocating amount of joy. He came into my life and shocked me by how his little presence could change me immeasurably. Six years later he continues to surprise me daily. Yes, sometimes he works my nerves with endless queries and negotiations. But he also melts my heart with an earnestness and sincerity that is unparalleled. He does it all with a style that is definitively his.
Once again, this morning he proved me wrong.
Happy Birthday Sweet Son. I am certain my life is better because of you.
