October 20, 2005

Five. It seems like such a milestone. When I look through these pictures, I see such marked change from year to year in your appearance.

And yet...

Last night, when I told you that I couldn't believe you would be five today, you said (and I will always remember it):

"Mommy, tomorrow I will be five. But tomorrow, I will still be the same size as I am today. My voice will still be the same tomorrow. My clothes will still fit me tomorrow. And I will still be your little boy tomorrow."

And you were. And you are. But I know that next year, when I add the next picture, I will see the passage of time clearly. Mommies do, you know.

One thing I don't think will ever change is your ability to express what you're thinking verbally. :) Or your enormous imagination. Or your sensitive heart. Or your contemplative reflections. Or your desire to be a helper. Or your excitement about life.

I'm so glad you had a special day.
You are my special little boy. Always.

Happy Birthday Nathanael!
