Today, You are 6.

A Blustery Day at the Park

This year you began kindergarten. You are learning to read, to write and to do simple math. You are learning to control your body and your emotions. You have come so very far this year, adjusting to all of the changes and all of the challenges. You have gone from a full IEP to reduced services and we are so very, very proud of all you have accomplished.


You are growing like a weed! You are so tall, that everyone easily thinks you are 8, rather than newly 6. Your baby sister thinks the world of you. You are a wonderful role model, friend and playmate. I am so pleased that you are, indeed, best friends.

I am so thankful for you. You are kind, energetic and thoughtful. You are passionate, excited and intelligent. You are curious, especially when it comes to science, and we are so excited to share this passion with you.

6th birthday

Thank you for being a wonderful, loving, little man. And thank you for letting me be your momma. I love you.

    Happy Birthday, Matthew! I have a blond haired, blue eyed Matthew who wears glasses, too! He plays baseball and is almost 17 years old! I hope you have a wonderful birthday.

    Of course this post made me cry. I still remember getting the message that he was born and getting to hold him when he just a wee one, it seems like just yesterday! I love that little man so much, give him lots of hugs and kisses from Auntie MJ and Uncle Fey. Happy birthday Matt! <3
