Happy 11th Birthday Drew!

Happy Birthday to my sweet Drewdles. Yes, I'm sorry I put you in angel wings but it seemed like a good idea at the time. You have to admit you DO look sweet and angelic, just the way I remember you as a baby.

You were such a beautiful baby, everything about you was perfection in your daddy and I's eyes. We were in awe to be parents and to be given such an amazing gift.

I've seen such a change in you over the past year. You've become so mature, so appreciative of all your dad and I do with you and for you. You can't imagine how good that makes us feel. I'm glad you've gotten over your aversion to hugs, kisses and I love you's. You even initiate it sometimes, and that makes my day. I love that you still like to hang out with us and talk with us. Some of my most special moments of my day are when you cuddle and talk with me. Please don't ever outgrow that. I love that are never afraid to try something new and when you want something bad enough, you have no problem working hard for that. I admire that in you. You are headstrong and know what you want, that will get you far in life. You are basically one cool dude and I am extremely proud of you and the young man you are becoming. I love you more and more every day. I miss the days of you being little but I've enjoyed every bit of the journey of watching you grow and will continue to be by your side. Love you sweet boy, you'll always be my little Cuddlebug.
Love mom.

Happy 11th Birthday to a very special young man in my life. God gave you into your parents keeping as a very special gift to be loved, cherished and nutured. Your Parents gave me the special gift to stand by your side in life as your Godmother. I cherish that role and you very much. I am proud the young man you are becoming and just how thoughtful you can be toward those in your life you love, as well as others that you know are less fortunate than you...you are inspiring to me as an adult, but the best is you are a wonderful role model to the younger kids too!! It does makes me a little teary to see that adorable "angel" baby.(I miss that time in your life too)
