It's difficult for me to realize that you are twelve. The years have flown by and I've seen you change from a baby, to a toddler, a child, and soon - a teenager. And even though I've witnessed all of this, you have made me feel young, and I love you for that.
So, in honor of your birthday, here are some things that I'd like to share that I love about you ...
You enjoy snuggling on the couch while watching movies with family.
You're very athletic and love playing sports.
When you put your mind to something - you do a great job!
You're protective of your little brother.
And you still call me "mommy", even when the other kids pick on you about it.
I'm looking forward to the next year - seeing how you change, seeing how your personality develops even further. You're my "little man" and I love you dearly. Happy Birthday!
