You started out so small. We really had no idea what we were doing with you. 

You challenged me from the start.  You were not in any of the parenting books I read.  You taught me to trust my instincts and to be confidant to throw the advice of so-called "experts" out the window.  You taught me how to be a mother.  You MADE me a mother.

You taught me incredible things like sign language and silly things like the names of the characters on Ben 10 Alien Force.

You are now teaching your brother and sister things. 
You will always be teaching me.

I can't believe you are seven today. Happy Birthday, Big Guy!
