Five years ago today my life changed completely as I welcomed my beautiful son into the world. I couldn't imagine then how much my life would change forever. Each and every day has been incredibly interesting, sometimes remarkable, and sometimes challenging, but always completely worth it. Orion is the most exceptional, extraordinary person I have ever met. His smile can warm the hearts of strangers, and his laughter is contagious. He is so kind and loving, even towards those that I have a hard time appreciating as an adult. There are definitely a few things that my son has taught me. He has helped me to become a better person. There are not nearly enough words to express how much I love this boy. But today is his day. We will eat too much, play too much, and laugh as much as we can. Happy birthday, Orion. You are the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life. You encourage me to a better person. Happy birthday, Bubby. I love you!
