{life} double digits!

A few days ago you turned 10. 10! Double digits! I wanted to post this the morning of your birthday but never got a chance. You know how hectic our lifes can be sometimes. But I still wanted to pause for a second {or more} and reflect on your special day.
You are 10 my dear L. You are past half your way to adulthood. Can you believe it? Time has no mercy, huh? And to think I came into your life when you were just 3 years-old. Your Nonos reminded me of the day you met them and your Titi and Uncle Coco for the first time. You were this lively, happy, exuberant little boy, that felt right at home since the very beginning. No shyness, no reservations, you let yourself be with all these new people and it was incredible. One particular moment of that day Nonos remember dearly is when Daddy and I were taking a nap {after a long flight} but you were awake and wanted to play. You needed a change of clothes but because we were sleeping Nonos couldn't find your clothes in our suitcases. So they put on you one of Nono's t-shirts. And what did you do? You got on top of their bed and started jumping up and down and cracking up at your reflection on the mirror. This tiny guy in a giant shirt. You made their hearts smiled.
Unbelievable that's been 7 years since then. My dear L, I hope, like that day, you will always be true to yourself not matter what. You're growing and turning into this funny, kind, friendly, smart, loving young boy. And although in time you'll developed other traits and learn more values and learn to deal with different situations, I wish you always remember to be yourself. Because yourself is what Daddy, Mom and Little G love with all our hearts.
I love you L, and will always be there for you. Ahead of you when you need guidance, next to you when you need company, behind you when you need support. Wherever you look Daddy, Mom and G will be there for you. Happy 10!
