Today you turn three. Even though you are still a little guy, you are developing into the person you are designed to be. You are so smart, funny, wild, silly, loving, caring, and beyond strong. You don't take no for an answer. Your smile is contagious. Your wild curly blonde hair, big blue eyes, and dimples seem to melt us all.
You love school, learning, your friends, sports (football, basketball, baseball, and soccer), mommy and daddy, ninja turtles, and your brother Jake the most. I love seeing the relationship between the two of you flourish. It melts my heart seeing you two together. Best buds. Everything I could have ever asked God for.
I was ready for you the moment your father and I found out we were pregnant with you. I was so excited to expand our family. I had a strong feeling you where a boy from the start. I had dreamed about having two boys. And I was lucky enough to experience that. To witness brotherly bonding is truly a gift. I hope you two continue to grow as individuals, and as friends. Always protecting and loving each other.
I hope that I can teach you to have a deep relationship with Christ, and know that know matter what He is with you, and loves you always. Everything is possible through Him (one of daddy's favorite verses). You have started that relationship. You pray before you eat, at school, at church school, and before bed. You pray for our family (all of them - not a short list either), health, and well being for all.
I'm beyond proud of you, and the little boy you are becoming. I'm blessed beyond because of my boys. Thank you for being you. I will be there every step of the way. I will protect, guide, give you the tools, and love you forever!
You are my sunshine, always and forever. And I love you to infinity and beyond! Let's go celebrate number three at Disneyland!
