I simply cannot believe my older boy is FIVE YEARS OLD today. Really, I blink and this is what I see.
And then they start developing their own traits, and fashion sense too. And they love to model things that you've knitted.
Will, you're a terrific kid. Your Dad and I love you so much, for so many reasons. You're sweet and caring, and you are a wonderful big brother.
You're silly, you love to laugh and your sense of humor is impeccable. And you've already perfected the art of a drive-by mugging for the camera.
You are happy-go-lucky, and are happy to show Sean the ropes.
You love to cook, and spend time with your Dad. And you're a good sport too, with putting on stuff that Mom makes you put on. Even though you just don't want to.
You have a wild side, and a wild imagination! You have lots of ideas, and are quite creative.
And most of all, you have so much love inside you. You love your whole family, and even though you are a big ol' five year old that "shouldn't have to go to school because you already know everything, you still want Mom and Dad to "snuggle you" and enjoy things like lullabies.
Happy Birthday, my darling. We love you so, very very much.
