Mason's birthday falls on Easter this year and so I thought I'd share his birthday post a few days early :)
You're turning 6 this Saturday despite my efforts to convince you to stay five forever. I've begged, bribed and bargained.... but you're bound and determined to grow up. Thankfully you have big plans for us to get married and for me to make you macaroni and cheese every night and you'd better believe I'm 100% on board ;)
This year has been a big one for you. You have shown that not only are you kind, personable and an absolute blast... but we've also gotten to see how resilient and hard-working you are as well. You don't give yourself enough credit and we often have to push you to your potential, but when you meet your goal you are SO proud and most of the time you realize you were way closer to accomplishing it than you even thought.
You are passionate about TCU, whatever Luke is into and your friends. You have the BEST imagination and we never know what stories you're going to tell your classmates, teachers, etc. Just last week you told another mom that your dad was 53 and sill wore floaties in the pool :)
You wear your emotions on your sleeve, have two volumes (loud and louder!) and are extremely empathetic. You recognize when people are different or hurting and go out of your way to engage with them, make them smile and are genuinely interested in them. It's beautiful to watch and is a character trait I can't wait to see develop and be used as you grow up.
We love you BIG, Mase!
