"Since I'm almost 6 years old..."

That's what I have been hearing for the last couple of weeks. The sentence always ended with a question to which the answer almost always was: "no you may not, but that was a really nice try!" Where has time gone? This year has flown by and yet it seems like so long ago that you turned 5.

You have grown and changed so much this last year. You have broken out of your shell and become this outgoing courageous chatterbox of a comedian! You are so smart and analytical which makes your Daddy really excited. He's already planning out when you can take over the engineering business.

You started kindergarten this year and have done amazingly well. Your teacher loves you and you crack her up all the time with your observations. For instance, one day she wore her glasses instead of contacts and you said "Now you look like a teacher, Ms. Cherry!" You started reading over the summer and I love the way you just sit with books all around you going from one to another. I'd say your biggest accomplishment to date was your courage to get baptized. With as shy as you are about being the center of attention, you got it set in your mind that this was something you needed to do and you did it. The whole time you were smiling the biggest smile I have ever seen on your face.

You are such a good hearted, sweet natured boy. You are thoughtful and unselfish (most of the time). You take such good care of all of us. Your new baby cousins are the light of your life right now. You talk about Lindsey and Joshua non stop. Your prayers are some of the sweetest heartfelt prayers I have ever heard come out of a child's mouth. You bring tears to my eyes sometimes.

Happy Birthday B-Boy! We love you more than you will ever know!
