My first

You were my first,
You were the first to speak that magical word...mama.
We have celebrated a lot of firsts with you,
So many milestones,
So many days you have made even better
By being a part of our family. 

It is hard to believe that 16 years have gone by,
yet watching you grow has been nothing short of amazing.
You are a one of a kind individual,
and that Son, is a delight.
You are a lot like me,
but even more like your dad,
easy going, smart, fun loving, adventurous,
and a prankster for sure.
 You have the biggest heart
and like your dad, you are a Friend to all you meet.
Ethan,
When I think of the man that you have become,
I have no words for how very proud of you I am,
how proud we all are of you.
With this special birthday comes much
responsibility.
We trust that you do not take that lightly but that
you continue to conduct yourself
as an example of God's light
and shine brightly so that others may know
of His goodness through you.
My hope for you Ethan is  
that you remain to be positive and curious.
That you seize every opportunity and look each
new day in the eye with a fierce appetite, an open mind and
a loving spirit.
That you look forward to all your "firsts"
Remember the book I read to you as a child,
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living,
My baby You'll be".
This is so true...because no matter how old you get,
you will always be my baby, my first.
I love you Ethan
Happy 16th Birthday.
