Happy 7th birthday, Little Boo. I can't believe all the different ways in which you've grown this past year. You've physically grown so much that your bike is too small and your clothes barely fit. You have also grown in so many ways academically. Last year your reading really took off, yet you continue to amaze me with your reading and writing. Actually, you excel in all academic areas and I'm so very proud of you. You always try your best at school. Your teacher is always telling me what a perfect student you are and how you are an example of a great leader in the classroom. You have also grown in your friendships. I know that sometimes balancing friendships is difficult, but you're learning and doing a great job!
You are such a source of light in our family. You happened to be born into a family of quiet introverts, so I'm sure it's sometimes difficult for you with your exuberant personality to feel like you fit in. But let me tell you, we need you. We need your light and your zest for life. We need you to be our little chatterbox and social butterfly. You help bring balance to our family.
Life hands us some tough lessons at times, which you have learned this past year. I hope that you have also learned that you can count on your family to be there and love you through those hard times. Mommy, Daddy and Monster love you no matter what. We stick together. We're family, and nothing is stronger than that love we have for each other.
I can't wait to see what this next year of life brings you. I have a feeling it will be filled with all sorts of wonderful adventures!
Keep shining bright, my little Sunshine. I love you so very much. I am proud to be your Mommy.
