Happy Birthday Baby! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of the young man you are becoming. You are a joy, a gift and a blessing to us and to your sister and brother. You have no idea how much love and laughter you have filled our lives with. From the moment you entered the world you possessed the ability to make us laugh and smile. When we would gaze into your bright blue eyes and cuddle your chubby little baby body we felt like we had won the baby lottery. And six amazing years later we know we did!
You are patient and you have more patience than many adults ten times your age. At only six years of age you have an ability to see people for what they bring to the table - not for what they are missing. And you have such compassion for others, especially your sister. It seems trite to say you are just sweet - but you are so very, very sweet! Your love is like a giant blanket that protects us from the cold and provides us warmth. You give that love so freely to everyone in your life. It is a joy to see you making new friends at school and to see you blossoming into a big boy!
Your Daddy and I often sit up at night talking about how lucky we are to have you! You will never know how much you have helped us cope with some of the unique challenges we have faced lately. You inspire us. You give your whole heart to everything. Whether you are skating at the park, coloring a picture, playing soccer or working on your letters and numbers - you always try your very best. What is just as remarkable is how helpful you are... without being asked! We adore that you race around the house to get something to quiet Cecily - or that you clean up the playroom only to say "it looks like that Leprechaun came back Mommy"... and that you still love to get hugs and kisses. You're always at the ready with a helping hand and we know that it is this spirit that will carry you far in life. You are an amazing little boy and we know you will inspire others with your love, honesty and compassionate nature. We love that you recycle your own toys for those children that don't have anything and that you really appreciate the gifts that you have been given.
On your sixth birthday please know how much you are loved! We adore you! You are our beacon of hope on the darkest of days and the rainbow after the rain. You are the source of so much love and laughter. I was tempted to post some of your funny videos but we decided they are too personal and we'll keep those Noah moments that make you so uniquely you under lock and key until you start dating!
We love you baby!
Happy Birthday! Thank you for teaching us the meaning of onwards and upwards!
