five amazing years.

This is still sinking in. My little baby boy is 5 years old. Man, that went by fast.
5 years ago, on our birthday, I was a brand new mommy holding a precious bundle in my arms. My life was forever changed. Because of you I am me, a better gift I could never receive. Brayden, I look at you in awe - you are so beautifully and amazingly made. I thank God for you. More energy in a child I have never seen, a dull moment...never! Everyday as I watch you I try to soak it all in, I don't want to forget a moment of your sweet childhood. My dear firstborn, you have captivated my heart. You are so you, and I love every single bit of it. You are so sweet and sensitive. You love to help, no matter what it is. You have a heart of gold, and I love watching life through your eyes.

You do not like to be alone, you love being with your family.
I can remember when you were a baby, you never wanted to leave my side.
Now, you are every bit a daddy's boy. He loves you more than you will ever know.

you love to wrestle and play sports.
you love to learn...you love to paint.
you are a great eater, there is nothing you don't like.
you are 39 pounds.
you never run out of questions.

you love to be outside playing.
you adore other children and love your friends.
you have such a strong spirit and i love it.
its just who you are.
you are you.
and you are so totally...well,

we love and adore you so, so very much.
you are our little boy and always we be.
happy fifth birthday sweetie.
