Happy Birthday, Jalen!

Dear Jalen –

It is so hard to believe my little baby is turning 3 year old. Where did time go? I remember finding out I was pregnant with you and seeing you all in the same day. It was one of the best days of my life. I remember holding you for the first time and it brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it. Over the past three years you have taught me what love is, patience, and what the true meaning of happiness is.

Seeing you grow and turn into a little man is the joy of my life. I love hearing your little feet pitter patter into my room at night. I love hearing you count. I love seeing you point to all your body parts. I love seeing you recognize all of your colors. I love hearing you put words together and hearing your vocabulary expanding. I love seeing you with all of your family and seeing how much you love them and how much they love you. I love watching and being with you. I will always be your biggest fan.

Jalen, you’ve taught me so much, but most of all you’ve taught me it is the simple things in life that mean the most. I do not know where I’d be without you and I do not like to think about it. You’ve changed my life forever and I love you with all my heart. You’ll always be my little baby no matter how big you get and how smart you are. Please know that I will always be there for you no matter what and I will always support you no matter what.

Happy Birthday and I can’t wait to see what this year will bring…

Love, Mommy
