Happy Birthday, My Six Year Old!

Dear K.C.,

It's your sixth birthday, sweet baby boy! I can still call you my baby even though you're not technically a baby anymore, right? (I promise not to call you that in public though.)

I can't believe that we're celebrating you turning six already. It seems like just yesterday that we had your fourth birthday party.

K.C., you are simply the sweetest boy I know. I love your drive, independence and determination. I'm thankful that I get to be a part of your life every single day. And you, sweet boy, are treasure to Daddy, your brother and me.

This past year, you've grown up so much. You started kindergarten and were fearless walking to your class by yourself. You did so well in school and made so many friends. You love to learn and ask us questions about how things work all the time. Daddy and I are so proud of you!

Your personality has changed this year, too, and I love seeing you come into your own even more. You are a funny guy! You make us laugh with your jokes and your responses to things.

You are so creative and quite an artist, too. One of my favorite things to do with you is to build things (and talk about building things). You are our little engineer.

As a big brother, you can't be beat. Your sweet, little brother adores you and wants to be just like you. I hope you two always share this special bond and recognize how rare it is.

You're quite an athlete, too. While you were five, you took swimming lessons, played soccer in the fall and spring and played on your first coach's pitch baseball team. You also love to play basketball, ride your bike, skateboard with Daddy and run with me.

Watching you grow from this baby boy to our little boy is definitely bittersweet. If I could play this sweet life in slow motion, I would. I treasure every nighttime snuggle, sitting in the chair reading with you, conversations in the car, sweet handholds and the many "I love yous."

I wouldn't trade one single moment with you because you are perfect just the way you are. God has amazing things He's going to do through you. I hope you always want to get to know more about our Hero and I pray every day that you will seek Him with all your heart.

I want you to know that the two most important things in our lives are our relationships with Christ and our family. God certainly blessed me when he gave me the role of Anna Belle to you a few years ago. I am honored to call you mine, my sweet blueberry ocean-eyed child. I love you more than all the stars in the sky! Happy birthday, my sweet boy!


Your Anna Belle
