Well, little man, today you are eight. Eight years ago you came into my life, made me a mama, and you have held my heart in your hands ever since. It is hard for me to explain just how blessed I feel to mother you, to be with you on your journey, to witness the person you are becoming. Each day with you is a blessing, yes even the days that are tough. I think the tough days bring us closer together, they force both of us to learn about ourselves and each other, and help us come together as a stronger team. You and I are a team, little man, a great team, and we are facing the challenges, enjoying the good times, and soaking up life in the most wonderful way, together.
You are amazing, little man, and I am so excited to see where your next trip around the sun takes you. Happy birthday sweet boy, I am so proud of you, and I love you.
