A letter to the Birthday Boy

Dear Alexander,

My sweet baby boy.  So serious yet silly.  Wild yet caring.  You are everything good in this world.  My world.  Even at the young age of 3 you have figured out how to make your self known.  You can frustrate me to tears then turn around and make me laugh so hard that I cry again.  The words aren't all there, but you make sure we hear you!  You are so smart and amaze me every single day.  There is always something new with you.  So unpredictable.  I'm supposed to be the one that comforts you but most days its the other way around.  Your smiles make me smile.  Your laugh is infectious and your kindness melts my heart.  

The very first time I saw you I knew you were destined to do great things.  I gave you a strong name to fit what I knew would be a strong personality.  We chose well.  My Alexander the great!  The day you were born is a day I will never forget.  Hearing you cry and having the nurses tell me you were OK was such a relief.  I would have never forgiven myself if my body hurt you!  But you are perfect. And I am better because of you.  

I hope that you know that I love you.  I would have given my life for you and I still would.  Daddy and I love you so much.  And Anthony does to.  I know sometimes you wouldn't think he does, but he loves being your big brother and is very proud of you!  As are we.  You are going to do great things when you grow up.  You have amazed me in the last 3 years I can wait to see what you will do with the rest of your life.  

Just now, you laid your head on my lap and told me you love me.  Snuggled up real close.  You are off in Mario Land but every few minuets you look up at me and smile.  As if you think I am going somewhere.  I'm not baby.  I will be here for you any time you need me.  Always by your side and forever in your heart.  Remember that!  I love you to the moon.

Love Mom
