Today is the ninth birthday of our dear Henry.
Henry - Building in 2004
Henry - Swashbuckling in 2006
Henry - Riding in 2008
Henry - Picking in 2010
Our youngest child, Henry, is full of verbs. He juggles, drums, reads, falls on purpose, builds, writes, draws, super-hugs, and climbs. He thinks, sings, jumps, spies, creates, tricks, and snuggles. He chops wood, skiis, questions, catches, listens, works, and experiments.
Year-by-year, we have watched Henry grow stronger and wiser, funnier and kinder. And today, the gift is ours. Another moment, another day, another year with our boy who loves to get dirty and loves just as much to dress up in a shirt and tie.
Happy birthday to you, darling Henry. We love you more than words or poems or pictures can say!
