Wilson, you are without a doubt a true package of joy. You have been non-stop excitement from day one and you are always keep us laughing or guessing. You have a gift for talking to anyone, turning the hardest faces into smiles and making friends out of strangers. Appearances, language, age, or location has never phased you from spreading Jesus' joy to anyone. You love to giggle and tell jokes, play silly games, hold my hand and cuddle. You love giving out compliments and you melt me with how many times a day you tell me I'm beautiful and the best mommy in the world.
You love doing school all day every day, you love reading and being read to. You love anything with sugar in it but especially love when I'm baking something. You'll drag the stool over to the oven and stand watch as you absorb the aromas and drool over the finished baked good. The most simple things make you so excited and your gratefulness and appreciation for the little things is contagious. I know God is going to use your personality and talents in incredible ways as you grow! I am honored to be your momma and see you grow from baby to man. Happy five years old my handsome Wilson! I love you to infinity and beyond!
