Taylor, you are the absolute sunshine of my life. You have taught me so much about life and love and about what really matters. You've taught me to have compassion, to be genuinely kind, and to let loose and be silly. You are such an incredible son, brother, grandson, nephew, and friend. Watching you learn and imagine and play makes me happier than anything in the world. You are so incredibly intelligent and sometimes say things that are certainly beyond your years; but then you act wild and crazy and remind me that you're still just a little preschooler who's learning about the world around him.
I know that sometimes I'm not the best mommy in the world; I lose my temper or get too involved in things to pay as much attention to you as I should. But I want you to know that I am thankful every day for the opportunity I have to be your mom. And every time you look at me with those big brown eyes and say, "I love you, mama," my heart just melts.
Happy birthday, kiddo. I love you!
