Happy Birthday Little Man

Dear Micah,

Tomorrow you are turning two years old and your mom cannot believe it. I look back at those pictures of the day we first met - how tiny you were, with your big brown eyes. Did you know that when I remember the moment of meeting you, the thing I remember most is seeing your beautiful brown eyes when I walked into the room? And, now, you are almost no longer a baby. You are becoming such a big boy - it's amazing to watch you move about this world and learn your way.

Micah, you have a way with people. They gravitate towards you - random people will stop and say hello to you while we are out - always. I think you have a spirit about you - a joy that people can almost see, and always respond to. I cannot wait to see you grow into a boy, and someday a man. I wonder how your inner spark will manifest itself throughout your life.

Everyday I am grateful for you in our lives. You and your dad are the best parts of my days. I am grateful that our path was to you. I love you very much.

Happy birthday, my little man.
Love, mom

  4. Happy Birthday Big Boy. I love how everytime I check the ol' blog on Micah he always looks so grown up (sorry momma I know it breaks your heart as much as it does mine :-(..) But he is just a handsome little man. He has definitly grown out of that baby face and looks so big!!

    Hugs to all!

  5. Happy birthday to Micah! I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by....I remember emailing you about the adoption you just recently completed. Crazy! CRAZY!!!

    I was thinking at the Magic House the other night what these kids would be like when they get older... What a joy it will be to see them grow.
