Where has the time gone? How has it been 6 whole years since I held you as a teeny tiny baby? Since you gave me the best gift in the world...being a mommy! How are you almost half as tall as I am and almost as strong? I remember the day you were born and have so many fond memories of you as a baby. It seems like yesterday when you would sit on my lap at naptime and let me rock you to sleep. Now, I can barely pick you up! I think you get bigger every day! I have so enjoyed watching you grow up, and every year is my "favorite"! I am moved to tears (sobs) when I think about how much I love you and how very proud I am of you! You are an exceptional boy, and quite possibly the sweetest, smartest, most handsome, funniest, most good natured little boy I know. You inspire and motivate me. You are a wonderful son, brother, grandson, and nephew. I can't wait to watch you grow up because I know it's inevitable. I do hope as you grow that you don't stop grabbing my hand as we walk or calling me "mommy". I love you, Gavin, and I always will. I love you unconditionally no matter what. I hope you always know that.
