Happy Birthday Miles

Miles is FIVE


and as all the kids will tell you,
five is fabulous.


Suddenly,
none of the missed birthdays matter.

Nor does it matter that
the big family birthday party at
our favorite local Mexican restaurant
had to be cancelled due to our 5FC H1N1 breakout.

Nor does it matter that my big glorious
plans for an amazing from-scratch cake
had to be scratched because
Mommy didn't want to give you all
her germs for your birthday.


What matters is,
You're here.
We're together.
And nothing can change that.



We love you from head to toe.
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Miles.
We wish you many, many more.


Love,
Mommy, Daddy

Hattie, Atticus,

Keenan, and Paloma

Few things can compare to seeing how a child lights up when you say Happy Birthday to him/her. This is the first of many, many fond memories of birthday cake for breakfast, family being there to celebrate, and our children growing up little by little.

I am blessed to have such a wonderful family.
