Happy Birthday, Birthday Boy!

Happy Birthday, Mikey!

YOU'RE SIX YEARS OLD!! So cool!! We can't wait to see what this next year has for you. All we know is that you'll be jumping into it full-heartedly. Because that's who you are. You do everything wholeheartedly. You love wholeheartedly, you play wholeheartedly, you think wholeheartedly, you pray wholeheartedly. There's no hiding your happiness, and when you're grouchy, you're grouchy with everything that's in you. You even break the rules wholeheartedly. But you also reconcile wholeheartedly. Your passion for life, for God, for people... for robots... it amazes us and it teaches us. Constantly.

Thank you, Mikey. Thank you for being an open book. Thank you for sharing your life with us. Thank you for loving us, forgiving us, teaching us... and thank you for so ferociously soaking in our love, our forgiveness, and our teaching. We pray that this year you'll be overwhelmed with the realness of the God who created you and His love for you... and that this knowledge will grow in you more and more with each year to come.

We love you, Mikey. Happy, happy birthday, Birthday Boy!!*

*Note: I was informed today, "Mom, you don't need to call me Mike or Mikey or Michael or Buddy or Wazowski or anything. You can just call me 'Birthday Boy.'"
