Childhood: now you are six

Last Updated on

Now you are six

My beautiful boy, another birthday has arrived. What can I tell you, now you are six?

You are clever and bright, your endless curiosity is a delight.

You amaze us and amuse us, in equal measure, with your never ending questions.

You are so focussed and determined, always finishing what you start.

You are friendly and caring, a joy to be around.

You are a wonderful big, and little, brother.

You are funny and quick, and never miss a trick.

You are one cool dude; a shirt and bow tie being a favourite look :)

You smile, all the time, and make us smile too.

You give the best cuddles, and our early morning snuggles make my whole day brighter.

We celebrated your birthday a day early, just like we did for your sister. Your daddy was very sad to miss your special day too.

You unwrapped your presents with such focus!

When you discovered that you had been given the much wanted Chaos Trap (well done daddy for finding one!) your face was priceless.

You were so kind to allow your little sister to help you, she was desperate to open a present too…

Then you opened your big present…

I don’t think you could quite believe you had a Kindle, just like your big brother :)

And, of course, Granny made sure you had a new shirt to add to your collection…

When I asked what kind of cake you would like, you told me chocolate with vanilla frosting, so that is exactly what you got… (Bearing in mind what a busy weekend we had, I have to thank you for such a simple request!).

It seems incredible that you are six! Where has the time gone? You continue to make us very proud. You have done so well in your first year of school, settling in without any problems and working so hard. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.

We love you so very much, our precious, happy boy; you make every day more special.

Happy birthday, gorgeous boy.
