When you were born, we had tears of joy in our eyes. You rounded out and completed our little family. That first year, despite the challenges of learning how to live with CF, you continuously made us smile and warmed our hearts. Over the past two years you have taught us immeasurable things, namely how to accept your challenges, even when you don't understand them and especially when you can't comprehend that they won't end.
We're learning again how influential we are in your life and we love how you throw our lines back at us and remind us how "ridiklis" something is.
We are reminded how great and unconditional love truly is and how fast kids grow up. We love how you run up to greet us when you wake up or when we come in the door.
Probably one of the most important lessons you continue to teach us is that it's important to plan for the future but focusing on living in the moment and enjoying each other's company is what makes life special.
We're blessed with you and we know it so even though you've asked for dad sizes clothes for your birthday, we're hoping you'll be ok with "ninja back turtle" Legos because we are loving you more and more every day and we're not ready for you to be big yet. We know you're not a baby anymore (especially because you keep telling us) but you'll forever be our baby.
Love you so much budsers.
