You are now 5. Where did the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was soaking in your newborn smell and loving on your soft newborn skin.For 5 years you have been our greatest surprise, our constant laughter and sometimes our biggest challenge.
You are my child who can push me to my end, yet melt my heart into a thousand pieces with your snuggles and those dreamy eyelashes of yours.You feel so deeply, which can make it hard for you to express how you feel, but it always gives you the gift to love so beautifully.
My little sensitive soul is what you are. Your feelings can be hurt so easily, yet you also are sensitive to others feelings in return.
You are always trying to do something silly, which can make it hard for you to listen, but it also gives us moments of laughter in our home.
You feel disappointment so strongly, which can cause you to express it dramatically, but yet at times it shows how much you hate losing the things you love in life.
My sweet boy how I wish so many great things for you in life.
I pray you never stop feeling deeply, but you always show positivity in your feelings
I pray you always have that tender heart, but you always use it to love others well.
I pray you never stop being the cause of laughter, but always understand the time to listen and the time to speak.
I pray you always love life as much as you do right now, but when it disappoints you let that help you grow.
I pray your sweet spirit shines over anything else. Always.You continue to be my most challenging child, but I wouldn’t change the challenges for anything because God made you so perfect in His image. I wouldn’t change one hair on your head (or the lack there of currently…dad is not a barber *crying eyes*) or one freckle on your face.
Always know how loved you are.
Always know how special you are.
Always know you are made to do great things.
I love you to the moon and backDo you have a child that challenges you? I found myself reflecting with a different perspective lately and started seeing what I consider a challenge as also something beautiful about this little boy.
