Happy Birthday Little Prince!
It's so hard to believe I wrote a birthday post a year ago - where has the time gone?
You rock my world with our funny conversations - a year ago you barely spoke!
Suburban Princess: What would you like for your birthday?
Little Prince: I would like some cake mummy please.
You always say please when you really want something. I know you are serious when you trot out your big boy manners. Well my little one...there shall be cake!
You melt my heart every time you give our dog a hug and tell him you love him. I cant even begin to tell you what it does to me when you look at me and say you love me!
I love that you cant wait to watch Wheel and Jeopardy but you call it Dapary. You are so cute when you wave bye to Vanna and Pat.
You are so smart...you can count to 1 million dollars! That's my boy!
I still crack up every time you burst through the front door and yell 'Hi Sweetheart!'.
You are such a sensitive little boy, you love cuddles and I suspect you are an intellectual rather than a rowdy boy. But you do love tramping about in the woods and looking at the flowers. You could be a safecracker when you grow up as you have figured out every lock and hiding place in the house. I watched a documentary about urban racoons and it said the harder the locks are the smarter the racoons become. I think we have created a genius racoon. Watching you solve problems and figure out how to get the things you want is facinating. I think it says a lot about you that you find the path to what you want rather than relying on anyone to get them down for you. This will take you far in life.
You have discovered the thrill of chocolate and I keep finding a trail of tin foil wrappers when ever I clean under the bed, in the living room, out the back door...cheeky. I kept you safe from the rapture of the cocoa bean for almost 3 years and you make me so proud when you eat your apples and veggies before asking for sweets.
You love Wondepets and I have to admit the Rat Pack and Fiddler Crab on the Roof episodes are pure genius! I love how you are compelled to dance along! It is bliss listening to you sing the songs the second you wake up in the morning.
You own the room whenever you shake hands with everyone you meet. Saying 'It's nice to see you' seals the deal. No one is safe from your smile and twinkly blue eyes.
I sometimes realise I cant remember my life before you were born. The 'old days' feelings are fewer and fewer as you become more and more important in our family every single day.
You have come so far in the last year but you are still the sweet, happy, charming little boy we have always known. You are my greatest work of art and my favourite person in the world. Dont ever change.
All my love,
Have a fabulous birthday!
