Dear C

You are 5 years old today!!!


Five years ago this morning I was the most nervous I've ever been in my entire life! I mean crazy nervous! (And I'm not a very nervous kind of gal.)

We were about to officially become your Mommy & Daddy!!! It was 10 days past my due date, and yes, you needed some encouragement. So, off we went early that morning for a scheduled induction.

By the time we settled in at the hospital, my nerves had calmed quite a bit.

About 12 hours later we laid our eyes on you and touched you for the very first time. Amazing!

February 2005 was a life changing month for us. It's a mixture of emotions I vividly remember and wonderment of how I got through each day.

Honestly, becoming your mother is the best gift God has given me. Motherhood has changed me in so many ways. (But that's a whole other post!)

Through the years...

C, you have such a sweet spirit. You love your brothers and have done so well with the role of big brother to 2 little ones. When I need help, I can count on you! Your are so inquisitive and learn visually. Construction trucks are your absolute favorite! You even use your toys trucks to reenact construction scenes you've seen while out and about. Your writing skills have really blossomed this school year and continue to improve. You still call me mommy and I love it! And, you love to talk! (I'm not sure where in the world you could have gotten that from. Okay, maybe your mommy.)

C, I am so blessed to be your mother. I am so proud of you. I know you'll be a great man.

Happy 5th Birthday!!!

All of my love forever and ever,
