I became a mommy.
It was a long, hard wait, but you are worth it.
Since then, you've grown faster than I hoped you would. Every day I'm amazed at how much you learn and absorb from your surroundings.
You love to sing Primary songs, and you know every word of all of our program songs. I think that is pretty impressive.
You love books, letters, and words. Everywhere we go you try to sound out the words you see, and if you can't figure it out, you ask us to help. I'm confident you'll be reading by the end of the year or shortly after.
You love your brother.
You may not always get along, but I know you're best buddies.
You're affectionate and attentive to others' emotions. Whenever I'm having a hard day, I can always rely on you to climb in my lap to snuggle and give me a kiss. You're not embarrassed to tell me that you love me where everyone can hear you...yet. :)
I couldn't have chosen a better son than you, Kyle. No matter how big you grow, you'll always be my little boy, and, to quote a book that you love but I can't ever read to you without sobbing,
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always.
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be."
Happy 4th birthday, Kyle!
