Eleven years ago on a early spring morning in April he blessed us with the most precious gift of all--being parents. Our first born child and son. He took his time coming out, but we were so happy to finally see meet him once he was here. Our buddy boy. He was our guinea pig as we navigated the waters of parenthood for the first time. Those early days as a family of 3 in our little house will always be special (even with the colic :))
These years have flown by and he has changed and grown so much. This is the year he leaves elementary school. While he may be short in stature, his heart is big. He is sensitive and empathetic to others, yet moments later stubborn and challenging. However, always with so much love for his family. He loves adventure. Never scared, he will ride any rollarcoaster that he is tall enough for. And, funny, is that boy ever funny. He loves jokes, tricks, magic, etc.
We say he would make a great lawyer (for his strong debating skills) or a pediatrician (because he would never be in a hurry and parents would love him for that).
His mind is amazing and he amazes us each day with his thoughts, ideas, analogies. We can't wait to see what the future brings for you.
JJW, we love you so much our buddy boy. Even though you a pre-teen you are still our little guy. Happy, happy birthday to you!
