Happy Birthday Sweet Boy.

Dear Baby Boy Dylan,

Today you turned three.  THREE.

It’s a little hard to swallow.

Where have the years gone?

I still remember the day you were born so clearly.  I remember the anticipation upon feeling my first contraction.  I remember breathing you in the moment you came into the world and saying, out loud, you even smell like mine.

The bond was instant.  You changed my life FOREVER and I am so, so, so grateful.

I don’t even know how to begin talking about you.

You’re my buddy.  You’re so smart and sweet and special.  When you fall it hurts me.  When you’re sad because someone chooses not to include you, I ache.

You have such a big heart, Buddy.  When I watch you help your brother, my heart wants to burst.  You care so much about everyone.  You waste no time putting on a show to make someone smile if you’re worried about his/her feelings.

Every morning you come in and tell me it’s time for breakfast, and it brightens my day.

I couldn’t love you any more.  Thank you for starting it all Little Man.
