9

I love this boy because he likes ranch dressing on everything he eats.
I love this boy because he hugs his little sister when she gets hurt.
I love this boy because he is independent.
And stubborn.

I love this boy because he likes to sit at the grown up table and just listen.
I did that too.
I love this boy because he enjoys reading.
As long as it isnt scary stuff like Harry Potter.

I love this boy because he protects his brother in tough times.
The brother that he says he hates.
But really he loves him more than anyone.

I love this boy because he gives me his forehead when I want a kiss.
But will hug, kiss and tell me he loves me on his own terms.
Kinda like a cat.
I love this boy because he doesnt wear underwear.
Just because.
I love this boy because he thinks it is cool to wear a cowboy hat over a toque to school.
Ugh.
I love this boy because he is my boy.
My first born.
The love of my life.

My boy is 9 today.
And I am having a very tough time with this.
Hold me.

Happy Birthday! 9 is such a wonderful age! Just think, in four more years (and you know how quickly they go by) you'll have a teenager!!!! Enjoy this year!
