Happy 9th Birthday Dallin

Dear Dallin,

From the day you were born, you were my little buddy. We have had some great times together. Some of my favorite memories were swimming at the Y and watching you take to water just like your mommy! I have loved watching you learn and grow. When I was worried that I wouldn't be able to have another child, I remember thinking about how happy you made me and how lucky I was to have you! You have been a joy to love and to teach. I love hearing about how kind and gentle you are. That means more to me than any of your other great qualities. I know as you have gotten older you have noticed more and more of my weaknesses. I can't trick you forever! I hope you will always be my special buddy and know that even though I am not perfect, I will always love you with all of my heart.
And I will always be your biggest fan!!

I love you Dallin and I am lucky to be your mom!
(Thanks to Suzie petunia for the action shots!)
