HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIDEN!
Three years ago today you changed my life, even from the moment we found out you were coming! Don’t get me wrong I love you with my whole heart and would not change you coming when you did for anything, but I just recovered from your sister’s long & dramatic entrance into this world when we found out you were preparing to make an entrance of your own! We should have known then she would be a sassy handful huh? :)
You had two big sisters who were beyond excited & filled with anticipation to meet you. They told Daddy & I from the day they found out we were going to have another baby that they wanted a baby brother. They wanted to name you Hannah Montana, Boots & Buzz Lightyear :) but Daddy and I thought Aiden fit you a little more.
I still remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. I didn’t sleep much the night before I was going in to start the long process of “evicting” you from your warm & cozy home for the past eight months, but when I heard your first breath it took mine away. Even remembering that moment now brings me to tears.
You were one of the best things to ever come into our lives & hearts. I hope you always remember that you are loved by so many people. You make our tiny piece of the world & this amazing big world you live in a better place just by being in it.
You are such an inspiration to us. I wish I could see the world through your eyes, because I wish I had the love & excitement that you do for each new day & experience. You wake up each morning ready to take on the day & can’t wait to see what it has in store for you. You have taught me more then you will ever know.
You taught me how to love in a whole new way. You taught me that I am a much stronger person then I ever knew that I was. I wish I had the ability to protect you from everything & to keep you safe. Even though I won’t always be able to, I will always be here for you. I will always be in your corner cheering you on and always loving you through each day & experience.
I look forward to watching you grow up & can’t wait to see how you change the world.
Love you baby! Happy Birthday!
