***This is a week late, but things were a little bit hectic last week in the midst of the party planning.***
I truly cannot believe that my little boy is five. FIVE. How did that happen? I am so unbelievably proud and humbled to be his mother. Every day that I have with him is a gift. Every morning that he climbs up in my bed and snuggles into my side is a treasure. Every time that he surprises me with another piece of knowledge that I cannot for the life of me figure out how he learned is amazing.
He is a challenge. He is a joy. He is a handful. He is 100% boy. He is independent. He is intelligent. He is sensitive. He is generous. He is the one that defined my life. He is the one that made me a mommy.
Owen, I can't even begin to describe how much you mean to me. I simply don't have the words that can begin to encompass what you've brought to our lives. You are so smart and thoughtful. You can capture a room full of people with your charm. You are truly an amazing person and I am so excited to see what the future holds for you. We love you so much. Thank you for making us parents.
