Two Hands

August 10, 2011

Oh man, yesterday anniversary, today Scott’s bday, this is officially mushy blog week.

Scott Michael Lyon,

You are 6! I can’t even believe it.

You are an enigma. You can’t stand the melty cheese on a quesadilla but you love sushi, crab legs, and Chinese food. You love every flavor of ice cream except for vanilla. You would rather have no ice cream than eat plain vanilla. You love every kind of weapon. And you are wavering between being an ambulance driver or an assassin (I am praying when your teacher asks you what you want to be that you just go with ambulance driver).

You are loyal, you are courageous and you are a rule follower. The love and kindness that you show your brother takes my breath away sometimes.

You are funny. A quiet witty funny that cracks us up. You love books and are starting to read. I can’t wait until you can read completely on your own, I think you will be heaven! You are focused and determined and have an amazing memory.

You are an amazing negotiator. Your dad has been training you since you were born. One of your favorite phrases is, “Well, how about _____, is that a deal?”

We love you so much. We love you higher than the heavens and deeper than the seas. You completely changed our lives when you were born, and I would never go back.

PS I changed my mind… Actually, I can believe you are six, I can’t believe you are starting kindergarten in nine days. Part of me wants to scream, “It’s too soon! He’s not ready!” But I know you are. You are ready to take on the world. With your family screaming from the sidelines of course.

PPS My dear precious eldest son, in your upcoming year of life, will you please let me take more pictures of you? Please.

    Seems like yesterday i was at your house on Riverside and you told me you were pregnant! Happy birthday Scott! Love your words for your little man. He is going to rock Kindergarten. And we can go for spiked coffee and cry together on the first day of school. Why do they have to grow up so fast?
