To my handsome three year old boy,
You are three.... and you are ALL boy! This last year you have really come into your own. Your personality is huge and you are goofy, REALLY clumsy, into everything, and always have a car/truck/ball/superhero in your hand. When I say you are clumsy, I mean real clumsy. Your sister never had one incident report in two years of going to school...you had a couple each week. Your teachers said we need to bubble wrap you!
When you talk you are so animated. You have the cutest lisp and drag out your S when you talk. If we don't answer you on the first time you will say, "Mom, Mom, KRISTYN"!! It cracks me up.
You love to eat. We rarely find something that you won't consume. I have a feeling we are going to go broke one day feeding you. You can easily occupy yourself and play great independently. You can sit and play trucks and cars for hours. You are so smart, I love watching you play. You are so technical and when you play, you can see that the wheels are turning and you are trying to figure out how things work. You love numbers, letters, books, and school. You do not get your feelings hurt very easy, I think you are bull headed enough things slide right off of you!
You recently have started saying "I love you" randomly and will tell me I'm pretty on your own from time to time. You are the type of person that when you say, "love you" or give a hug it means something. You are not very emotional or cuddly so when you do something sweet, it is the best thing! People always compliment how beautiful your bright blue eyes are. Those eyes. They are gorgeous, vibrant, and a look into your soul. I can see the ornery and the sweetness in you through those eyes. They are one of my favorite things in the whole wide world.
This past year you had your tonsils, adenoids, and nasal cavity shaved. In one word, it really sucked! You were not yourself and didn't feel well for at least 3 weeks. You no longer snore or breath heavy when you sleep... and your tonsils no longer "kiss" in the back of your throat. Throughout the process you still had a big smile on your face, used your manners in the hospital, and were a trooper. You are so tough.
I love watching you and your dad together.... you guys are best buddies. You love your dad so much and are so happy by his side. You light up our home and lives. I'm so proud to see you growing into the little man that you are. Love you so much Angelo!

To my beautiful five year old,
WOW.... I cannot believe you are five. Your first birthday was a tough one and five is another rough one because it marks you getting ready for a new adventure in heading off to school. It's so funny, when I was in the trenches of those first months that you were a newborn being sleep deprived, learning what it was like to take care of a REAL human.... five seemed like an eternity away. I remember my co-worker had a son that was going to kindergarten right after you were born and him saying, "this will you before you know it".... but I didn't believe him.
Now here we are. You have grown into the coolest person I know. You are sassy but not in a bratty way, in a way which shouts your personality and gives way to the confidence within yourself that you have. YOU.CRACK.ME.UP. You are so funny, goofy, loving, and caring all wrapped in to one. I love watching you dance. Everytime I watch you I get a little teary eyed, not because I'm sad, but SO proud (or your faces are so stinking funny or you are shaking your booty so hard that I'm laughing so hard my eyes tear). You really still are not to big into school... you have other things you want to see and do. This is something that we are going to have to work on this year. Being social and making people laugh is more your thing. You are so creative, numbers and letters just aren't on your radar! You also make up the funniest songs.... you are constantly singing... it's a little shaky at the moment but the words are what is the best part! You sing the randomest things and you sing VERY loud...love it.
You are beyond caring. You are very sensitive and make sure to take care of your brother, the dogs, your friends. You are great about cleaning, using your manners, and (most of the time) doing the right things.
Right now you have such an interest in heaven and have lots of questions about it. I love how your catholic preschool has already sparked a spiritual interest in you. The other day you were asking me about heaven and what people do up there all day. I told you I was not sure but it was magical what ever it is.... you told me you can't wait to go and that you are going to drink coffee
alllllll day long!
Happy 5th Birthday! I love you so much and cannot wait to see what this year brings.
Love you most!
