Dear little kid,

Happy 3rd Birthday!

You are everything I never knew I needed. You're a challenge, no doubt about that, but you're also one of the most interesting characters I've ever had the pleasure of knowing (and loving!). You have a larger-than-life personality and your steadfast determination and the constant joy you get from life are inspiring.

You make me laugh on a daily basis and your smile is genuine and full of happiness, all of the time. I love how you love being my baby, and the way you completely melt your body into mine when we snuggle. I love the way you love me and I love loving you back. I truly believe that you will always be my baby, no matter how old we get.

I have to go now because you and your brother were fighting and I'm pretty sure you ripped the thing that holds your tongue to the bottom of your mouth. Now I will go hold you in my lap and comfort you even though we both knew you shouldn't have been trying to bite your brother in the first place.

I like you, I love you and I will always protect you (as best I can).

Aww, happy B-day LK! (BTW, it's called a Frenulum! DS was tongue-tied and had his cut.)

just wanted to tell you that my little kid is 17 now and still (at 5"10) snuggles up in a little ball and tries to lay in my lap. It will never change.
