My darling son, my no-longer youngest child. Today we get to celebrate your 5th birthday. You are growing up so fast, it seems like your life is just a blur! I know you are anxious to grow up, but I am not ready to lose the little guy that you are! This year you made some incredible improvements in every area of your life. You started American kindergarten and are doing amazing. You stepped out of your comfort zone and began Tai Kwon Do! You have improved in your language skills, both Chinese and English.
You have accepted your new role of middle child as well. I know it will be different when your sister comes home, but I have a feeling you will be ok.
Little man, Mommy and Daddy love you so much! We are so proud of you, and the person that you are becoming. We love your sensitivity and your caring for people. We love that you are social, and always ready to relax and enjoy life. It drives us crazy sometimes, but we love it! I can't wait to see how much you change this year, how much more you grow up. Always remember that you have people in America, China and Africa who love you and are proud of you! Happy birthday little man!
You love Mommy...
You love to climb trees
You are now a yellow belt!
You wear the same clothes Daddy did!
