My Sweet Boy, Lincoln,
Seven years ago at this very moment, 8:43 AM on November 23rd, my life forever changed. You were born and made me a Mommy. I never knew how much love my heart could hold until I met you. You changed me. The love between a mother and her child is something indescribable. You taught me just how powerful that love really is.
This year has been a huge year of growth for you. You amaze me with how insightful and wise you are for someone so young. You've certainly been through more than you even realize already, but you take it all in stride.
You love to play sports. This year you've participated in T-Ball, Soccer, Basketball, and you take swimming lessons! You are one busy little boy -- but that's the way you like it!
You love Disney World and going on vacation. Any type of amusement or water park makes you happy. You are a world class traveler!
Although there is a 4 year age gap between you and Avery, you are a very patient, sweet, and protective big brother. You tell me all the time you cannot wait until he is just a little bit older so he can play more things you enjoy.
Whenever I get sad about you growing older before my eyes, I think of this quote: "What if I fall? Oh, but my darling what if you fly?" It is beautiful to watch you grow. I love seeing the person you are becoming. Your life has only just began. You are going to do so many wonderful things. Lincoln, I want to watch you fly.
I know I always say it, but you have the kindest heart. You are genuine. You are sincere. You are compassionate. You are my sweet boy, who still loves to cuddle with his mommy. You are so, so loved.
Love you forever,
