The Great Eight

Look Who's EIGHT Today!!

Nature Man, we've loved you from the beginning...
(two weeks before he was born)

And we love you through all of the cuteness and mischief...
(posing as a cowboy when he was 2-years old)

We love you when you sleep and when you play,
through make-believe and daily life...

We love you through the coats of mud and dirt,
even when we have to dig you out and hose you down...

You've brought so much joy with your sweet spirit,

compassion for others,

love of nature...

For 8 years and 9 months, you've been an absolute delight, a beautiful gift...

You will always be our oldest son, our first boy

(aiyaya--potty training was new to me for little boys!!),

and my baby forever ...

We love you soooo much, little Nature Man!
Happy Birthday!!

What a handsome sweetie! Happy Birthday to the big boy! That really is a good age.

Oh and, yes, You wore pregnancy well. I was completely unrecognizable at that point in mine. Totally ugly-but also totally worth it. :D
