My son was born on Martin Luther King's day so every time he celebrate his birthday, it is right around that week. This year, he is very happy because even though his birthday falls on Monday, they are off that day and they also got another day off today due to storm. He was excited when he woke up and I told him that school is cancelled. He exclaimed "Yes for a 4-day weekend!" Anyway, as he celebrate his 11th birthday, I wrote something about him to represent his ELEVEN years of existence.
E - Eldon.. I was going to name you after my Dad but we decided that Eldon is perfect. Everywhere you go, the crowd seems to gravitate with you because you have that very friendly personality. EJ, as you grow up, remember that Mom and Dad would always be the rocks you can lean on, no matter what the situation is. We love you and your sister to the moon and back.
L - LOVING... I wrote that in all caps because you are such a loving person. You always make sure to tell us how much you love us and we love you very much for that. Although you are no longer little, in my eyes, you are still my little boy. I think, you will always be my little boy who always bring light and laugh to our lives. Your quirky sense of humor is very contagious!
E - Excellent story teller. I always find joy in listening to you when you are telling us stories. Your animation is very enjoyable. You might exaggerate things sometimes but I still enjoy it. Please continue to be you, we love you for who you are!
V - Vivacious. As I have mentioned above, your bubbly personality always bring joy to anyone around you. Your vibrant personality is what makes you unique and genuine. Don't stop being a vessel in bringing a smile to anyone's face.
E - Exceptional is what you are. I am biased in saying that because I am your Mom but other people see it too and because I am your Mom, what I think counts the most, right? You will always be my extra-special little buddy. Thank you for being such a wonderful son to us and brother to your sister.
Three more days Anak and you will be fully eleven. Remember, try not to grow up too fast, okay? Please don't rush to be a teen because you will have seven years to enjoy it but you only have one year to be 11.
Happy ELEVENth birthday Sweetheart! May God always protect you from harm and guide you in achieving your aspirations in life.
