My Dearest Baby Boy,
We’ve known each other for well over nine years now and I am so proud of the little man that stands before me each day. Age 9 is a fantastic age.
I thought for your 9th birthday, I’d list a few fun facts about the number 9:
When people say

This has been the theme of my life as of late …
Filled with 2 parts sadness, 1 part feigned happiness …
Everything’s been … hazy.
Have you ever felt like you’re outside looking in?

I love this song.
Because the chorus — it always makes me think of you.
** I can hold you in my arms … I can hold you forever **
If you think I’m being intense …
You haven’t even begun to tap into how vivid my feelings are for you.
If you think

As most know, I’m always trying to warn my boy about the dangers in the world.
I tell him countless times, don’t talk to strangers! … Not even in your head!
