Seems only yesterday that you were this one year old little guy! Shy and timid...sweet and silly....
And now you are 4? You at still all of those things...but now you are so much more!! You are a crazy, perfect, adventurous, loving, curious, sweet little BOY! The baby in you is gone...look out world!! Here comes Will Mongold!
Somehow....you went from that baby that worked each day in pottery land with your mommy! Chubby, calm, small....quiet.....easy.......
...to a 4 year old little man. You play video games with your brothers, you swim, you ride a bike. You can do sparklers, run fast, and build Lego's better than me! You never take no for an answer and there is no skill that you won't try! Your stick-to-it-ive-ism...is remarkable! You have shown us how capable you are of anything you put your mind too! Those big brothers will have to keep on their toes to keep little Will from passing them by in ANYTHING that they do!
Your curiosity is off the charts. You learn move in a day than most people learn in a month!
You make us all work a little extra hard to find the best activity, or the best craft to do....you make us want to learn with you!
Will, you give me a run for my money most days and some times you make me feel 10 years older than I really am. Keeping up with you is a full time job! And what I know for certain, is that your huge energy and your off the charts zest for life will create quite a remarkable young man one day! And we love you for all of these things!
I swear I can take out one crayon and a used piece of paper and you can find excitement in what you will draw in that small empty space! Never do I throw an idea out there that your arms don't reach for the sky as you yell....Yeah....that's awesome mommy!!
Your Tasmanian tantrums.....well....I guess we could do without them...but heck....without your high emotions when you are disappointed...I fear we would not get the cheers of joy when you are excited....so I'll take those crazy tantrums!!
To have your "happy face" in my life is what keeps me going on the hard days! You never let me quit!
And when you say "Mom...I love ya so much!"....it melts my heart. I have heard I love you for years....and leave it to you to take it up a notch and add the "so much" on the end! It melts me that much more! And why should I be surprised....that you have the need/ability to take everything up that one extra notch!!
We are so lucky to have your crazy little self in our lives! My love for you is so perfect! You are my Will? My Willa-mina? My Will-a-monster! Since the day I met you...I knew you were something special and unique! Keep us on our toes sprinkle face! You are our "best friend"! We love you little man!! :)
