An Open Letter to my Birthday Boy

Dear Peter,

Happy birthday to my little sweetheart. Daddy and I talked about how neither of us remember as far back as three, so I thought I would write a little about you.

You have daddy's perfect hair and long dark eyelashes. You have Mommy's eyes and enthusiasm. Your smile lights up a room. You are great at talking and explaining yourself, though you still have trouble with some sounds like "th." Some of your favorite things to say are, "I do it." "I fink it's my turn." and "Goodnight ev'rybody-guys!"

Your favorite game is "run around," which is just like it sounds: you love to run around, inside or out, at home, at (ahem) church, or at the park. Candyland and "Match" (with Memory cards) are also favorites. We've started to learn our letters and sounds ("the Learning Game") during the week.

You've gotten accustomed to doctor, dentist, and CF clinic visits.  You're generally good about doing your treatments and taking your medicine. People are always surprised to learn that you have CF; you look like such a healthy boy.

Your favorite food is Snyder's pretzels and "chocolate milk" (any type of nutrition drink.) You also like tuna fish sandwiches, burritos, macaroni and cheese, hummus, waffles, and french fries. The only vegetable you eat with any type of consistency is carrots.

This year will be a big one for us. You will continue learning to share, and to be a "big brother" to the little girl we babysit. We will also learn how to swallow pills, start some basic reading, and have fun doing more swimming, sports, gymnastics, and cooking. And of course, we will continue running!

Heavenly Father sent us a wonderful little buddy. I am so excited to see you grow and learn this year. Happy birthday!




P.S. Daddy took these photos of you this week while I was doing a shoot with a friend. Boy, he sure loves you!
