Dear Little Bear
Wow. 5 years old, already?!?! It's going by too fast for me. This year as been both amazing and hard on you. You have grown up so much but, there have ceartainly been growing pains. You're more independent but you still resent that it had to happen. You want to be my Momma's Boy forever and you HATED being displaced as the baby by Cameron. You came running to me crying last week because Ethan called you a toddler and you were so mad because of course you're bigger then that, I started crying too... not because of the 'mean name' calling but, because I realized that you're right. You're not a toddler at all anymore. Every night you pray not to grow up and while I agree with you that it is going by too fast, I think that you will be an amazing man one day and I love seeing you grown and learn. You've learned so much this year! You've learned your ABC's and Sounds, You've learned all your shapes and your handwriting is BEAUTIFUL. You love your Pre-K class and having your own friends. You're very positive and happy at school and such a teachers pet. Even though I have really missed you when you go to school, it's been wonderful for you. You're my smarty-pants. You've figured out how to be a good big brother this year and you are so loving and tender to everyone in the family. You love, LOVE to tease and joke to get a laugh or reaction out of all of us. You have such a tender heart that I hope you will always leave open for the world to see. I love being your Mother. Thank you for the joy and happiness that you bring into our family. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
No matter how old you get you will always be my Little Bear.
I Love You, FOREVER.
