Dear Liam: six!

Dearest darling Liam David,

You are the most incredible six year old I've ever known!  It's so easy to celebrate you, especially since you are genuinely thrilled by the smallest of things. Happy sixth birthday, precious boy. 

You are a "big P-2" (your phrase) this year and have settled into school well. You have lovely handwriting and are doing really well with your reading. Most importantly, you love school. I'm so thankful that you are enjoying learning and having fun with your friends!  

Someday, I imagine, you won't be the cuddliest and sweetest boy in the land. But, until that moment, I will enjoy your tender heart and lovely cuddles. You are hands down the most naturally sweet person I've ever met. We tell you all the time that the most important thing you can do is be kind, and I truly think you embody this attribute. 

Liam, you love a laugh! You will go to great lengths to get a laugh from others and you find the humour in everything. Your laugh is big and bold and incredible, I hope that never changes!  You also love love love to dance!  This isn't a new love, but you're really cultivated some new moves recently. 

Everyone always comments on your size. You are currently 50 inches tall and tower over most of your classmates. I'm always amazed that you're so big since you started off so teeny tiny. I pray you keep your sweet spirit and become a gentle giant like your daddy. 

Sweet boy, I am so glad that I get to be your mommy.  You make me proud every day and I'm humbled that I was chosen to raise and shape you. I'm excited to continue to watch you grow and change, I think this year is going to be the best yet!  

Love you forever, and ever,
