Seven!

Dear Woo:

I find it hard to believe that you are seven years old today!  It seems closer to a week that has passed by than seven years! You continue to be the sunshine that greets me bright and early with a smile on your face, as you have for these years.  The difference is that now you can get your own breakfast!

I look at you now, and I see how much you have changed in a year.  While it seems like all you did was grow taller, this year saw you lose your first tooth, and your second, third, fourth, and fifth teeth, including one that was removed surgically. You continue to grow into a confident boy who loves to learn. Your transition into the more structured format for grade one has suited you well, and you are thriving there.

It’s amazing to watch who you grow into the little person that you have become.  I love to see you reach new heights, be it in the swimming pool, on long bike rides, in your cooking experiments, with challenging new books, or in the nets with your hockey team. Your curiousity is what continues to guide you, as you build and create with whatever you can get your hands on.  I think that the recipe you developed for ‘knight cupcakes’ is my favourite of all your creations from this year, because they are seriously the best cupcakes that I have ever tasted.  I was secretly proud when you told me that I couldn’t make them for your birthday this year, because you had to do it to get them right!

It’s so wonderful to see the kind, considerate, and loving boy that you continue to be.

Happy birthday, my little man!!

Love,
mama

A year of Woo
