Happy Birthday to you...

{the look on your face when you first saw me at the wedding as a "princess"}

Dear Eli,

Today is your 5th Birthday
I can't believe you are growing up so fast. 
I remember the day I met you. 
You were two and half and a bullet from a gun. 
Nothing has changed besides you growing older, growing taller, and smarter each and every day. 
I am so blessed to call you my son
I know one day you will make an amazing older brother. 
Let's cherish these moments of you being an only child because that won't last for too long. 

Today we are celebrating you
We will have a fun filled day at Disneyland 
Something I know you will talk about for months to come. 
I promise to talk lots of pictures to show all your friends at school and to share with everyone else. 

For your 5th year of life,
I am excited to watch you grow even more in every aspect of your life. 
You are going to begin playing tee-ball, soccer again and might even try out football. 
You love cars and iron man
Not to forget, that buzz light-year gets buried in there as well. 
You love watching movies and sponge bob. 
Chores get done everyday and you never forget to tell me you love me each night before bed.
I love your hugs every morning before leaving school 
and I never remember your cereal but never forget to tell you to be a super napper and get a green card! 
Only a few short months left until you are a BIG kindergartner. 

Stay sweet.
Stay adorable.
Keep giving hugs. 
Never stop believing in yourself. 

Here is to your 5th year of life
I promise to love you each day.
Guide you the best as I can. 
Cherish all the moments. 
Be there for you through it all. 
I want nothing but the best for you.

Happy Birthday Big Guy.
I love you.

your mommy
