Dear Sweet Archer,
Where has the time gone?
I can't believe that you are turning 3 today.
Three years ago you changed my life completely and now I couldn't imagine life without you. You bring such joy...and craziness... to my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I love you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.
I love your full, thick, huge head of hair. My favorite is when I can see nothing but your hair bouncing behind the couch, down the hallway to your room or when you wake up in the morning with a crazy case of bedhead.
I love your big brown eyes that are so full of innocense.
I love your little button nose...I especially love giving you eskimo kisses.
I love your voice. Sometimes when I stop all that I am doing and just listen to it, I giggle inside in disbelief that you are my little boy.
I love the way you give bear hugs...so full of energy and life (and with a mean growl). I pray that you always want to give me hugs because I sure will never stop giving them to you.
I love your little hands.. when they're dirty from playing outside, when you hold mine while walking across the street, or when you unknowingly lay them on me while we are watching TV.
I love your heart; it is so big! You feel so much...for other people who are hurting and when you are in trouble. Even last night when Daddy told you not to talk to me the way that you did, you voluntarily put your toy down (after already saying sorry), climbed on to my lap and gave me a huge hug and said, "I am so sorry. I love you so much." Oh my, you melt my heart!
I love your tummy. I always love giving zerberts to you on it, but now you don't stop giving them to me. It makes you belly laugh...I love it!!!
Speaking of laughter, you are so full of it. It started with a silly chuckle when you were a small baby and has turned into a wonderful sound. You take after your Daddy. One of my favorite things is when the two of you go into the other room to "laugh together." It is the most amazing sound to have fill your house.
I love your legs. My favorite is when you play around the house in your T-shirt and underwear. Your legs are just adorable. I couldn't love you any more than I do!!!
I will love you FOREVER!
Happy Birthday, sweet boy!
