To My Monster Man

To my wonderful little guy,
Happy Birthday buddy. You are so full of energy sometimes it seems like you will just burst. Daddy and I often joke that you are unable to walk. If you aren't sleeping you are either running, jumping, or climbing. When we try to get you to walk you still have to skip because you just can't walk. You are very intense and live life with passion. I've never seen anyone dramatize the eating of green beans the way you do, or display such fright at the sight of blood. Sometimes (often) your intense energy and passion lead you to make mistakes, or to hurt others; in those moments your sorrow over having done wrong wins all hearts and you are quickly forgiven. You are very strong. You give hugs that cut off a persons windpipe, but, when you remember, you can give some of the sweetest hugs ever. you want so badly to be "smart", to learn new things, and to be "good", to do what's right. Everyday you work at being better and everyday I see you improve. Thank you for opening all my doors. Thank you for learning to share with Sweet Terror (even though she was so mean to you for all these years). Thank you for being Pablo's best friend. Thank you for telling me I'm beautiful and for all the hugs and kisses. I love you Monster Man. Happy birthday!!!
