wyatt turned six yesterday, if you can believe it. the night before his birthday, i went up to his room while he was sleeping and just watched him for a while, trying to savor the last little bit of wyatt as a five year old.
we celebrated his birthday this year by going to an atlanta braves game in atlanta this past weekend and by having a special birthday supper last night. corey and juli came, and so did davis, his best friend from school. he got to open the gift he was hoping for the most--a violin. he's been lobbying for it for over a month now and insists that he already knows how to play it. i'm not so sure. . .
thanks to my friend ginger who introduced me to mypublisher.com, i made wyatt a photobook of the past year of his life. at the end, i wrote down some of our favorite things about him. i'll list them here so you can get just a small picture of what an amazing kid this wyatt of ours is:
- you are curious and inquisitive.
- you love adventure.
- you are brave and strong.
- you are a truth detective.
- you love people.
- you pay attention.
- you are fun to be with.
- you love learning.
- your desire is as big as the sky.
- you dream and think and hope.
- you love to run and run and run.
- you are a great brother.
- you are a good friend.
- you are just what our family needs.
here's to a new year with my sweet and feisty 6 year old boy.
