This boy will eat cake and open presents.
This boy will celebrate.
This boy has helped me capture the moments of life more beautifully.
It seems like just yesterday you stood,
excited on the front steps,
as you saw snow for the first time.
This boy is joyful beyond measure.
This boy shows sincere kindness beyond his 8 years.
This boy cares for his brother with such tenderness and love.
Sometimes I wonder how God squeezed so much joy
into one small boy.
He knew what he was doing when he created you,
my sweet boy.
He knew this mama needed a boy with a giant sized heart,
with a sparkle in his eye,
with kindness in his soul.
We have much to celebrate, you see-
this boy has taught me much about motherhood,
about love, about living life joyfully.
As hard as it is to see your
little hands become bigger hands,
and your little footprints become bigger footprints,
to see your shadow race to catch my shadow,
I am blessed.
I am thankful.
I am joyful-
because of you, my sweet boy.
Because of you and the endless joy you bring to my life.
So many memories made.
So many memories yet to make.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to fix this.
If you know how, I'd be grateful if you could help a girl out! :)
