Dear Lincoln James

Today you turned five years old. I cannot believe that I am old enough to have a five year old! And I cannot believe you are already five. Since the day you were born, I cannot count the number of times I have heard, "enjoy your time with your baby, it goes by so fast", and it is so true. And I so enjoyed the last five years.
You are so excited to be five because that means you can go to kindergarten and ride the school bus {around the corner...such a short ride for someone whose sole excitement for school is the bus ride!}.
Although you have a crazy-hyper side that can drive Momma crazy from time to time, you are such a loving, helpful boy. You are so good and have been since you were little. We never had to baby-proof the house for you because you never got into things. I know that I can leave you playing and you will do just that - play and not get into trouble. You always help me with little jobs and are always helping daddy - especially when it's time to mow the lawn. You love on your little brothers so much and are very helpful with them too. I love watching the three of you play together and laugh together. You always want to be on the go and with people; going to someone's house, going to a store, having people come to our house. Even though you tend to be a bit shy when in a bigger group of people, you always want to be with other people! You have the best memory too...Daddy and I joke that when we need to remember something, we'll just tell you!
My hope and prayer for you Lincoln James, is that you will be a man of God. That you will love Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. I know if you're doing that everyday, everything else will work out just fine.
I love you little shuggie-bear. Happy 5th Birthday!
