Dear Riley (otherwise known as PickleBoy),

Happy Birthday!

Thank you for being such a wonderful friend, inspiring son and truly excellent human being. Every single day since the one where I first felt you kick in my newly rounded belly has been a beautiful adventure. You really were the happiest, smiliest, best-baby-boy a mama could wish for. And then such a lovely toddler, little boy and now thirteen year old young man. I have told you this before but I will repeat it until my very last day...if before you were born I was given the opportunity to make a wish list of all the possible attributes I wanted for my future child I would have felt greedy making the list that you have become. You are wise beyond your years yet a crazy silly boy, you are so very funny yet have a nurturing and serious heart full of love, you do happen to be very beautiful on the outside yet your insides far exceed any possible physical beauty. I could go on and on but I will just finish this letter by telling you this.
I.
Love.
You.
So much more than I will ever be able to express here in words. Thank you darling boy of mine for everything you are. I celebrate you today and every single day.

Love,
Mama

Happy Birthday, PB!!! I hope your birthday kept you smiling like that all day. But somehow I imagine you smile a lot, naturally.
