I should have known what I was in for when you were in utero. You loved to start kicking me right as I drifted off to sleep. You absolutely loved watermelon (still do). You loved to dance to cajun music and you decided to break the rules and come out feet first like a cliff jumper.
You taught me patience, pure sweet sweet love, how to laugh at myself, forgiveness and most importantly, how to run in 3 inch heels.
You amaze me every day, you test my patience every day and you tell me " I love you so much Mama, you are so beautiful" three times a day. I am the luckiest mom in the world.
You are now seven. The world is your oyster. No more free ski lift tickets or free airline seats..you are not a baby anymore...
So happy happy birthday my sweet prince....Today is a day of celebration and lots and lots of chocolate cupcakes with swirls and twirls of chocolate frosting...Of best wishes of being such a big boy and then....falling asleep in my arms..just like in the beginning..you and me..me and you...
I love you little monster
