Wow, what a big day it is for you today! You are turning 5 years old! Wow, wow, WOW! It seems like just yesterday that we went to see you in the hospital when you were born, and held you for the first time. Then again, so much has happened since then, it seems like a lifetime ago. I'll bet you must be so big by now. And I imagine that your hair is long and curly?
Oh, how I wish I could see you again, and hold you, cuddle you, tickle you, and make you laugh. I love it when you laugh. Your laugh is just like your daddy's - loud and deep, coming from down beneath your belly. Your face lights up so much, it brightens even the darkest of days.
I remember when you daddy turned 5. He had a big party with all his friends from kindergarten. He got lots of presents, and everyone played lots of games. Your daddy won the game of Pin The Tail On The Donkey - do you know that game? I think maybe your daddy could see under his blindfold, because he knew exactly where to go to pin the tail.
I wonder if you're having a party, and what sort of games you like to play? I wonder what your favorite present is? And what sort of cake did Mommy make you? Or did Grandma make your cake? I hope Cadee, that you have a really, really fun day today. Daddy, Grumpy, Uncle Alex, Aunty Dez and I, are sending you all sorts of warm wishes and hugs.
Love you forever,
