Happy Birthday, Jack!!

Dear Jack,

Happy 13th Birthday!  I am sitting here trying to comprehend how 13 years have already passed since you completed our family.  I remember that day so well--we couldn't wait to meet "Baby Jack".  Through the years you have brought so much joy to so many people.  People just like you--you're kind and funny and fun to be around.  I love that you appreciate things, both big and small.  I don't think a day goes by when you don't thank me for something, even if it's just washing and folding your clothes. You get excited over little things--like when I bring you a snack when I pick you up, or fix your favorite meal for dinner.  You aren't afraid to show you care, and I love that about you.  I love that you tell me you love me at least once a day--there is nothing I'd rather hear.  You are growing into such an amazing young man, and I am so proud to call you my son.  I hope this next year is filled with all kinds of love, laughter and good memories.

I love you big bunches,

Mom
