Tom Is FIVE.

Dear Tom,

I asked you to please stop growing.

You refused.

And now look.  You’re actually FIVE.  Five years old!!

I cannot even stand it!

You are the one in my belly who kicked me during every 2 p.m. news meeting.

You are the one who cried seemingly non-stop for the first two months of life.

You are the one who amazed me with such astounding tricks such as rolling over, spitting, clapping, and grabbing things with your hands.

You are the one who had butterball feet.

You are the one who started running at around 15 months — skipping “walking” altogether.

You are the one with the most contagious laugh.

You are the one Huck fears.

You are the one who loves every toy ever made — especially trains, cars, trucks, planes, dinosaurs and Power Rangers.

You are the one who loved your little sister fiercely and immediately and constantly.

You are the one who will share.

You are the one who loves baths, but not soap.

You are the one who caused people to say to me, “He sure is active, isn’t he?”

You are the one who has a great imagination.

You are the one who knows more facts about dinosaurs and fish than anyone I know.

You are the one who loves to run.

You are the one who puts great thought into anything deemed adventurous.

You are the one who loves water.

You are the one who makes friends easily.

You are the one obsessed with YouTube videos about toys.

You are the one who will eat an entire “party pizza” in one sitting, and will then still ask for a PB&J sandwich.

You are the one who still refuses to eat chocolate or fruit.

You are the one who loves books.

You are the one who likes to listen to ROCK MUSIC before school.

You are the one who makes me laugh and smile every day.

You are the one who constantly tells me how much you love me.

You are the one who makes us all so very happy, every single day.

You are the one who has been waiting for this birthday for a very long time.

And now it’s here.

You are the one who has our hearts.

Always.

Happy 5th Birthday, Tom.

We love you more than words could ever express.

LOVE!
Mama

Tom 2
