today you are three.
three whole years.
and i've been thinking lately about you.
about how much you've changed lately.
grown up. learned. listened.
how refreshing and fun you are to be around.
you've got a little light in you, miles.
you have this sweet spirit - so thoughtful of others.
you never want your sissygirl left out.
you never want anyone to feel sad.
you have a gentle heart.
and while there are some interesting days with you,
[i mean, you're a 3-year-old boy! why wouldn't days be interesting?!]
you have taught me more about the Lord than anyone.
you have a strong will.
and you love to talk.
and you have a very, very active personality.
and lots of days, i think,
"wow, he is all his dad and none of me."
but it has been so good for me to be around.
it has grown me so much.
you light up our lives.
you make us laugh,
you keep us on our toes,
you love deeply.
and you are the sweetest little three-year-old that i know.
your smile is the best.
happy birthday, buddy.
