On this day, six years ago, this little dude made me into a first time mama.You have taught me so munch about life – both beautiful and tough lessons weren’t taught by you. You are pure magic, my child. You test the boundaries, every single day, but I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. You’re my twin, & I think that has a lot to do with the fact that we bump heads more often than not. You’re a fire sign (Aries), & I’m a water sign (Scorpio) – we clash a lot, but we are soooo alike in so many crazy ways.
I love your big heart & your need to always be near your dad or I when watching a show or reading a book, always have to be touching one of us. You have grown so much this past year – I mean so much it’s insane to think about. I though five was a big jump, but screw that, five to six is HUGE. I feel like you were still so baby at five… now you’re like a big kid. Man, bittersweet. It’s amazing to watch you grow into this awesome human, but I miss your little baby hands, curly little head, your baby breath & that sweet, tiny voice of yours. Now you have a missing tooth, loosing other teeth, reading, learning French, going to the kitchen alone (even though you’re not supposed to), talking about all these big kid things & just acting like a big kid. It’s mind blowing, & I know that this year around the sun is just going to get even crazier.
There are definitely moments where I catch a little “baby” still inside of you, & that part I hold onto SUPERRRR freaking tight.
Ronin, you have taught me so much about life in the last six years, & I am so excited to learn more through watching, guiding, standing behind & next to you for years to come. Life has been so special with you, & you’re constantly encouraging me to SLOW DOWN & take in all the moments in. Thank you for making me into the mama that I am. Thank you for having patience with me. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, Ro. I know I make a lot of mistake, but I know you know I am always trying.
Happy Birthday, kiddo. I hope this next year around the sun is amazing, special & magical like you are. I can’t wait to see what this year unfolds for you. I can’t wait for more adventures & memories we have together. I love you, my love. I love you more than you know.
