A remarkable feat considering just moments ago this was you...
Making your first unbreakable bonds with your brother.
Not so slowly you changed from my content-to-play,
(Eye courtesy a freak Thomas the Train incident...)
The first time you recited the alphabet at 2 1/2 years old you did it backward--perfectly. It was astonishing and a lovely party trick for the months that followed before preschool teachers ruined you into saying it like everyone else.
Fact is, you have a special spark. A passionate spirit your dad and I have vowed to focus and direct, but never fully tame. It will serve you well in the many years and accomplishments to come.
You experience life at full blast and we love you for it. Stay true to that crazy little drummer inside you little big man and march forward. We'll try to keep up.
xoxo~Mom and Dad.
