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, and 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), and 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 and 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 and just acting like a big kid. It’s mind blowing, and 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, and that part I hold onto SUPERRRR freaking tight.
Ronin, you have taught me so much about life in the last six years, and I am so excited to learn more through watching, guiding, standing behind and next to you for years to come. Life has been so special with you, and 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 and magical like you are. I can’t wait to see what this year unfolds for you. I can’t wait for more adventures and memories we have together. I love you, my love. I love you more than you know.
