Happy Birthday Leif

You will be 6 years old tomorrow! What a wonderful year you've had.

You have learned to swim underwater, ride a bike, feed a baby and read simple books. You have made amazing diagrams, maps and lego creations. You are excited about learning French.

You have built dinosaurs, received report cards, lost teeth, and found library books.
You have ridden on the Big Rides at the fair!

You have charmed girls, fought with boys and lost many of your earlier fears . . .
but . . .
you still cry if you think you've hurt someone's feelings, or if you feel you've disappointed us. You still worry about people who are put into awkward situations, and you still love being at home with your sisters.

We are so lucky to have you in our lives and love to watch you grow into a sensitive, playful and caring boy. We take turns taking credit for your
wonderful qualities. You are observant and detail oriented like your father, and sensitive and careful like me.

You are the best big brother that your two little sisters could have and the light of our lives.

We love you birthday boy.
