Today is your 9th birthday. 9 whole years! I have no clue where the time has gone, but one thing is for sure...you make my life sweeter! When we were about to welcome you into the world, I had no idea about how much you would change our lives for the better. You are delightful, and I'm so proud that I can say that you are my son.
At 9 years old, you are an absolute mess! Funny, kind, sweet, serious and sensitive, all rolled up into one. Your Dad and I often point to each other whenever you do or say something, and it totally reminds us of ourselves. Most of the time, we know exactly who you are acting like! You are in a pranking stage right now, and you've pulled a couple of good ones on your Dad and I. Better watch out! You love your family so much, and have a huge heart for Jesus. It's easy to see him living in you!
You are in 4th grade now, and are we know that you are going to do fantastic again this year. For the first time ever you will be playing baseball this fall, and we are excited to see how much you will progress as you move up into the next league. You want to be in the military when you grow up, and maybe even fly airplanes. I can't wait to see that!
Somehow it feels like I blinked, and here we are with you on your 9th birthday! You have one foot in childhood, and one foot in tweenhood, and I'm so proud of the young man you are, and can't wait to see how God will use you in the future. We are so amazingly proud of you, and love you to the moon and back. Happy Birthday, sweetie!
