Happy Birthday Wildman!

August 4, 2007

To my Wildman,

August 2008, first canoe trip
I know I tell you often, but not often enough, you are one of the best things to every happen to me.  You are my little man.  My confidant.  You have been there for me through a lot and you have taught me even more.  You have done all of this and today you are turning the ripe age of 4.

I remember how excited your dad and I were waiting for your arrival.  We decided not to find out if you would be a boy or girl, but I secretly knew you were a boy.  Your stubbornness was evident from the beginning.  First you didn't want to come out.  I do think having me push for 4 hours was a little excessive, but I see you just wanted to make a grander entrance.

1st Birthday, August 2008
You will always hold a special place in my heart.  Not just because you are my first, and only, son, but because you have taught me so much and made me grow even more.  There are no words to describe the feeling of you saying "Mama" for the first time.  Yes, you decided to be stubborn when it came to talking, and now we wonder if you will ever stop talking sometimes :-) but your words are beautiful.  Your first smiles, your first "I love you", the first kisses and hugs.  You have always been a mama's boy, even though you are starting to transition into more of a daddy's boy.

I never get tired of having people tell me how precious you are, how special you are, how kind and sharing you are.  I never get tired of telling them how lucky we are.  You have this way of touching people, even though you are too young to understand the how and why of it.  I could never have asked for a more perfect son.  You made me realize there is a reason to this madness we call life.

I know I can be short sometimes.  I can be complicated.  You roll with it.  There is nothing in this universe that I wouldn't do for you.  I will always strive to show you how much I love you.  There are no words to truly describe how much I love you and how lucky your dad and I are to have you in our lives.

3rd Birthday, August 2010
We are lucky and honored to call you our son!

We love you so much and we wish you nothing but the best on your birthday!

Happy Birthday Wildman!
