My sweet boy. You are a whole hand now! You were so excited and counted down the days on your tractor calendar by your bed to when it would be your birthday! I can't believe how much our lives have changed in five years.
When you were a baby, people would stop us and say, "Yo baby so juicy!" and now you are the one loving on our baby girl.
When you were a baby, you always went to sleep so well and when I tried to rock you to sleep, you would rock for a few minutes, then point to your bed and want to lay down. Now, you want the lights off, door shut, Blue quiet. But....sometimes you ask me to lay down with you. Then you ask me what my favorite part of the day was and you tell me yours.
When you were a baby, you didn't talk very much at all. Now, you have lots to say and have many conversations. Especially with your cars and trucks. I love how you have the bigger ones be the Mama and Daddy and the little one the "son."
When you were a baby, you loved to eat canteloupe and blueberries. You still love fruit, especially apples, grapes, strawberries, oranges, and bananas. But not canteloupe or blueberries.
When you were two, you knew right away how to drive your little tractor. Now, you fly through the field on your four wheeler and are a great driver!
When you were a baby, we were so amazed how you walked at 10 months. Now you are super fast and can even beat Alabama in a race. But only when you have on your "fast shoes."
You love to play outside, "play" football, ride your bike, drive your four wheeler, play with your animals, play with your cars and monster trucks, read books, play games (you are the master at Memory) and watch TV.
We love you so much, Usry Pate, and are praying for the man God has called you to be! I pray you will follow Him with your whole heart and love Him more than anything else! We are so blessed to have you as our son!
