For most people, this day is the 10th anniversary of one of the worst days in this country’s history. A day filled with mourning, reliving the pain and loss. While I still am saddened by the tragic loss of life that day, for me this day is the celebration of one of the best days of my life. This particular day, I said goodbye by my high spirited 3 year old toddler, and hello to a 4 year old boy whom I love more than he will ever know.
No one truly prepares you for the day you realize your baby boy you have waited your whole life for, is no longer a baby. Or even a toddler. Today he enters boyhood. It’s not like he turned 4 and grew 13 inches…oh, no. This was even worse. Call it denial, or just the peaceful way “three” rolled off the tongue….but between yesterday and today, I am a wreck.
Happy Birthday to my 4 year old BOY! I love you more than I could have ever fathomed. You are my sunshine and I am so blessed by your precious life. Your daddy and I are a little, (ok a lot), behind in the video department, but I wanted to share a sweet little video Stink made for your 1st Birthday. I love you more than life, and always will.
