Birthday Letter To CJ

Dear CJ,
Five years old!  Where does the time go?  I have been thinking a lot lately about the day you were born.  For the longest time I did not think I would have a son, but then you came into my life with a very special light.  In some ways it feels like these 5 years have flown by and in others it feels like you have been a part of me forever.  And I guess in a way you have been.

You are one very stubborn boy with a heart of gold.  You are such a sweet caring little boy.  A great big brother.  You have the greatest imagination and can tell the funniest stories.  And you are as stubborn as they come.  You can drive me nuts one minute and make me laugh hysterically the next.

All of the troubles you had in the beginning seem so far off.  You can be fearless at times climbing things.  Running and chasing after your friends and your sisters.

You walk into a room and you make people light up with excitement.  People gravitate towards you as well they should.  You're a shining star and people want to absorb as much of that light as they possibly can.

You keep making people laugh and sticking to your guns on things.  These are both great qualities to have.  You light up my life and I couldn't imagine these past five years without you.  I am better for having you, my son, and I love you always.  Happy 5th birthday!  You're getting so big.  Mommy loves you and is so proud of everything you do!

Love always,
