My Dear Miller,
Today you are four! Time passed by so very quickly. I remember going into labor with you and making the hour long trek to the hospital while I prayed for you and for me and for your brother in his new role. You arrived and we loved you right from the start.
You were tiny and precious and so full of life and potential. Your contagious joy has stolen many hearts and touched just as many. Your smile can bring me out of any cloudy mood.
My hope for this year is the same as previous ones. I hope you feel how deeply your Daddy and I love you and that this love helps you feel secure as you navigate the world around you. I hope that God captures your heart early and that you are always thirsty to know Him well. I hope your Dad and I are never a hindrance to the path He has set before you and that we help guide you in the right direction. I hope you make good friends that make your life full of fun and adventures. Safe ones of course. I hope you and your brother become the best of friends. I hope you learn more about God's forgiveness and grace and unconditional love in the way I try to love you even when I fail to get it right. I hope you always know just how proud I am to be your momma.
The world is yours for the taking little man. Grab hold of it and charm it with that radiant smile of yours! I love you so much more than you know!
