Happy Birthday to my Little Man.....

Well, today is the day! Ian is officially 8 years old. Im at a loss for words when I try to describe how I feel about it. He is growing up so fast and pretty soon he wont be a little boy anymore. Ian has given me so much joy since his birth 8 years ago. It is hard for me to imagine what my life was like before he was in it. Nothing has ever come close to the feeling I had that night when they laid him on my chest. Nothing else mattered in the world at that was just amazing. I just want to write a few things about Ian that I love. It's only a few because Im sure I could write a book on this subject.

1. His witty sense of humor
2. His smile
3. The way he tells me he loves me and hugs me like Im the most
important person in the world to him.
4. His intelligence
5. His tenderness
6. His spirituality
7. His soft squishy ears
8. His negotiation skills

Those are just a few....... Ian is an amazing individual and makes me laugh daily. Here is a little bit of a conversation that still has me laughing! This took place yesterday.....
mom: Ian, who wrote this on your folder (it said "I am dork"...I was just curious)
Ian: That depends
mom: depends on what?
Ian: well, what answer would make you the most mad?

Always looking for the best answer, always wanting to please, never wanting to get in trouble. That is Ian for sure.

I love you Ian Kenneth....I hope your 8th birthday is the best ever and that you never ever forget how much your mom loves you!

I can't believe he is 8! Has it really been almost 3 years since you all moved to Utah? Hard to believe! He is such a handsome boy! Happy Birthday Ian!
