You are a gift that God gave me when I really didn't think I needed another baby. I was already busy with your 2 sisters and I could not understand why God didn't see that. I should have never questioned His plan though because when you came into my world I realized you completed a little part of my heart that I didn't even know needed to be filled. For 6 years I have been able to call you mine and Drew Bear I am thankful each and everyday for you.
Now just so you do understand you do challenge me! You throw fits like only a 6 year old boy can. You are persistent to no end. You NEED a lot of things when we go shopping. You are exactly like your father and most days this is awesome but there are days I just have to shake my head because you are his mini-me.
But Buddy I don't know if I have ever met a little boy who will talk to anyone, who always has a smile & hug ready, who loves his role as a "single" in our family and volunteers this information freely whenever anyone asks if we have two sets of twins. You are adored by your little brothers and sisters and some days they drive you crazy but on other days you rotate who you play with. You have a way of talking them out of their fits better than I do. And over the last couple of months you have become Tate's idol. He needs to be exactly like you. If you have seconds, he has seconds. If you wear only pants to bed, he wears only pants to bed. If you do a belly flop into the pool, he does one right after you. I love seeing how he looks up to you and I pray you pass on your best qualities and maybe not the ones like laughing after you burp.
Little man you are now 6. I will let you soar this year with those wings you found but buddy please don't blame mommy if I occasionally need one of your squeeze tight hugs or your cuddles during a nap because you are still 4 in your mama's eyes.
Happy 6th Birthday Drew David
