Happy Half Birthday Jack

Today my baby is 3 1/2! Four is just around the corner, but the growing you've done in the past several months is immeasurable.

Dearest Jack,

I was caught off guard by this whole "growing big" thing that has been going on. I told your Daddy a while back, soon after he had buzzed your hair in fact, that I just couldn't take my eyes off you. I studied your face and noticed how it was thinning. I searched it over for the baby who used to gurgle and coo in my arms, but it was like you had transformed. You were now our sweet little boy, no longer a baby. After the trimming of your hair was all said and done, I knelt down in front of you and I was just stunned by what I saw. It was like you had shed your babyness in one single sitting.........there it was in a pile on the garage floor. I stared at you the rest of the day. I love you so.

Pictures would do it no justice, you probably will look back and not notice the difference. You just won't see it. You would have to look through my eyes to see it, and that blessing is all mine. If you could see it, the way I saw it, the way it seemed to thin out your face and make you look even more like your Daddy, you'd know what a blessing it is.

We adore you Jack. We are head over heels in love with you. We love you unconditionally and always will, and we are truly feel blessed to have been chosen by our Heavenly Father to be your parents. You bring such joy to our home. We look forward to all the "growing big" times ahead!

All my love,

Jeff brought Jack a donut home for his Half Birthday treat and he was thrilled!
