Happy 5th Birthday, Fox!

On the day that you were born I became.

 

Whole.
Fierce. 
Beautiful.
Strong.

A mother. 
 

Your first year of life was a huge learning curve for me as your mother, but you were also so smiley, patient, and joyful. You are loved by so many, and anyone that came into contact with you just totally fell in love. 

From the time you turned 18 months old you were constantly moving and causing trouble. You gained a brother and a best friend. You march to the beat of your own drum, and found that drum when  you were two. You developed a sense of humor, and quickly became the entertainment of our lives. If you weren't entertaining me you were making me cry with frustration. More motherhood lessons learned. You my darling, are my heart, even if we fought a lot. 

Year three and four were a blur we moved, added a sister to the family, and welcomed grandmother and granddaddy back to Texas! you started Pre-K, and learned to some-what follow directions. In year four you became a very interesting little human, with a very interesting view on the world. Also, you love- love-love Starwars. 

Now you're five.
Off to Kindergarten. 
planning a 401K.
prepping to be the Governor of Texas. 
And keeping us all throughly entertained. still. 

 

Each time you fall asleep with me during nap time I wonder if it will be the last. Kinder will take this daily slice of peace and heaven away from me, but I know something even better will take its place.

But no matter how big you get, how successful you may find yourself, and how grown you think you are- I'll always see my rainbow baby. My Foxy-Loxy. My first born. I love you forever baby boy, happy birthday.
