Silas, you bring so much joy to our life. In all actuality you bring joy to everyone you meet. You are so generous with your smiles and giggles and even hugs and kisses. You love to catch a stranger’s eyes and bat your ridiculously long eyelashes at them and flash them a grin. Pretty much everyone is helpless against your flirtations.
You don’t say a lot but your language has really been blossoming lately. And who needs to communicate when you have two sisters at your beck and call. You are no dummy!! And nothing gets by you. You may not talk a lot but you understand everything. And if you think you can get a laugh out of someone you will do whatever it takes to make it happen. As a result, you get a lot of laughter at your adorable antics.
You love anything that moves. Planes, cars, trucks, trains, boats. Anything. And let’s not forget balls. Or anything you can turn into a ball that you can kick or throw. After “raising” two girls you are definitely a different breed. I am absolutely delighting in watching what delights you.
I have loved every minute of all the one on one time I get with you this year. With both your sisters in full time school at least three days we get a lot of great time. I can’t tell you how special it is to me. Thanks for brightening my days.
I am torn daily between dreading the fact you are no longer my baby and waiting with eager anticipation to see who you are turning into. I pray that you will always hold onto the joy for life that you have now. I pray that you will always delight in bringing smiles to those around you. And I pray that you will always love your mama like you do now (that one may be a pipe dream, but I can wish).
Happy Birthday little man. Your whole family adores you.
