I didn't know it was possible, but I love you more every moment of every day!
Enjoy your new upgraded cell phone... and YES ... you still only get 8 text messages a day, and 8 hours of being on the Internet a month... I don't care that your dad got it upgraded for your birthday, or what the "plan says you can have for 'free'"... I have the stretch marks on my tummy that say I still get the final say on your b-day gifts... Enjoy your 8 new video games... and NO... you still can't play them on "No video Game" days, even though they're birthday gifts from Nana and Aunt Mikie.
Enjoy the new pool toys... and new football cleats... and room decorations...
Enjoy your 8 friends and cousins who came to wish you happy birthday today. Enjoy your B-day ice cream that Daddy got special just for you (since you still enjoy being "difficult" and won't eat cake) ... I'm glad you enjoyed starting football conditioning on your birthday... and YES, you'll still have to do ALL the drills, even when you tell them it's your special day.
Most of All... my prayer is that you'll remember these 8 things...
You have been God's special gift to your father and I.
We love you with our whole hearts, as imperfect as we are.
He has a special plan for your life.
Do everything with your whole heart, mind and soul.
Enjoy the moment, Anticipate the future, Learn from the Past
Hug mommy lots... it's the best part of my day!!!
