I can’t believe it’s been 6 years since you were born. I can’t believe I’m so lucky that I get to be your Mom. The year from 5 to 6 has been amazing. You grew so much, had your first year of “real” school, matured so much, and continue to take care of your baby brother. I am so proud of you and who you are becoming. I’m a little sad too, though. It seems like I blink and you grow more independent. It makes be proud and sad, I wonder how much longer you’ll want to snuggle before bed; but, maybe I should wonder how much longer your long legs will fit on my lap. From the moment the nurse put you in my arms, you have been a calm point in my life. I’m able to hold my patience with you much longer than with anyone else. I think those big blue eyes have something to do with it. I’m so glad I am your Mom and I can’t wait to see you grow this year!
