HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY! I cannot believe it! 5 seems like such a huge milestone. First of all, I’d like to congratulate your dad and I for keeping you alive, and overall, for not raising an asshole. YAY – Go us!
I cannot begin to tell you how proud of you I am, how much I love you, or how much joy you bring into my life everyday. As I sit here ugly crying, because my baby is growing up, I know that I am so excited to see the amazing person you continue to grow into. You – are the light of my life, and my best friend. I love our cuddles, our secrets, and our dinosaur play time. I love to watch you explore this world. I love that we were able to give you a huge back yard for you to play in. I hope that you always want to be a T-Rex. I love how curious you are, and even though it may drive me a little crazy, I love all of the questions you ask. I love all of our traveling we have been doing together, and seeing new places through you eyes. I love watching you learn, and figure things out. You are so smart! You probably know as much about dinosaurs as Ross Gellar!
But most of all, I love how much you love. Your family, your friends, and your unborn baby sister that you so badly wanted to name Penelope.
I hope your 5th year is everything you could ever want and more. No one will ever love you as much as your daddy and me. You are, and always will be our whole world Dylan Silas. Happy Birthday!
xoxo – Mommy.
