Today my little boy Tyler turns 6. Wow, really where has the time went. It only seems like yesterday I started my blog and wrote my very first post on Tyler’s first birthday, his birth post. I changed blogs so the date was out a little, but yes today is also my 5th blogoversay. Happy birthday to my cheeky, happy, funny, sweet, handsome and adorable little boy and happy blogoversary to my little space, I call my blog.
I wish I could slow time down a little, take things in a bit better, take time to look around and embrace it. Even if it doesn’t I should. Tyler you are such an amazing little boy, who brings so much joy, laughter, tears and loudness to the world around you. I love your smile and you give the best hugs and kisses. You are a cheeky little chappy, with a twinkle in your eye just like your Papa Billy. I wish you’d gotten to know him. You two would be inseparable. Even with your cheeky chappy attitude you are the sweetest and kindest of all your siblings, you will share your last sweet, make sure your brother and sister are ok and will help whenever you can.
Tyler you’ve had a great year at school and come on leaps and bounds, making friends and doing well at your work. Ok, you don’t like homework and I can see this is going to be a challenge for many years to come, but you get there eventually. You love me to read to you and I love it too, although you are reading a bit more on your own. Please keep this up. Books fuel our imaginations and keep the magic alive.
You idolise your brother and want to play football just like him. It comes naturally to you and you are great at it. Doing everything your brother does is what you want to be doing. Annoying him at times, but you are still best friends and I hope this will always be the case. I love coming down in the mornings to see the two of you huddled together playing a game or watching a video. It makes my heart swell with pride. Tyler, you love your little sister so much and are always there to help her out. She idolises you and loves you back just as much.
Like a lot of physical things, you find them easy to master. You have patience and are a quick learner, but also stubborn if it’s not something you want to do, you just won’t. You love to dance and shake your little booty whenever there’s a dance song on, but God forbid anyone to look at you while you are doing it. I hope you grow in confidence and let the world see you shine on stage as you’d be a star.
Confidence is something you lack, you come acrross as a confident, loud, happy wee boy, but when it comes down to it, you need to be in your comfort zone. That’s fine, but don’t let it hold you back from doing things you want. Be proud to be you, you are amazing.
We’ve had a great year together, we went on a few caravan holidays where you did Archery, water walking and swimming. We went to the Commonwealth games and we even went to Disneyland Paris for Gran and Grandpa’s wedding anniversary. You had a ball. You loved seeing the characters and everything about the place. Not as keen on the bigger rides. However, you did go on Tower of Terror, not sure you’ll ever go there again.
You are so kind, sweet, caring and loving towards me, your dad, brother and sister, don’t ever change that. Your smile lights up your face and that cheeky wee glint makes any bad day better. You are strong willed and loud, you certainly don’t take that from me.
I can see you wanting to start your own rock band in the future and I think you can do anything you put your mind to. I love you with all of my heart, after a rocky start we got there and you bring joy to my life. And one day that front tooth you knocked out where you where 3 will grow back in.
Your favourite thing in the whole world is soft toys, anything soft against your skin. It’s you, it’s what reminds me of you and it’s like your personality. You love soft toys and have so many, I’ve lost count. No doubt there will be a few more to add to the pile today. Dylan is your favourite, you got him for your birthday last year with matching pjs. But, you also love any soft toy. I hope you keep this soft side forever. It really is just you.
I love you Tyler with all of my heart, we all do and I hope you have a truly wonderful birthday and are feeling much better. Love Mummy xxx
