happy sixth birthday, harrison

 how did this days-old baby boy

 with these tiny hands

 and this giant yawn

and chubby everything

and gorgeous twinkling eyes

and a helpful happy heart

 and curious spirit

turn into this smart handsome fellow?

my heart does not know a time before you existed 
yet it feels like only yesterday you were placed in my arms. 
before you were born i prayed for you
and god blessed me beyond what i asked of him.
he created in you a true masterpiece
a boy so much greater than i could have imagined.
thank you for making my life fuller.
i love you more than i ever knew it was possible to love.
