Best Little Boy In The Whole Entire World!!!

Today is my sweet little Tegan's 6th Birthday!  How in the world is he already six??
He is the perfect little boy for our crazy little family.  He gives us energy and keeps us on our toes.
For the past six years he has pushed my buttons and slap worn me down with all his energy and very boyish ways.  I have complained and grumbled about how hard he is to handle and how exhausted he makes me but I have to tell you, I wouldn't trade that stuff for a single second.  Yes he is full of energy and mischief but he is also totally full of sweetness, kindness, love and so many other things.
More recently I have noticed that this kid has a heart of gold.  As he gets older and I am around more kids his age, I start to realize that I am a very lucky mama.  He isn't mean or harsh to others.  He tries to include everyone even when others are not including him.  His heart is so tender and so full of kindness for others. 
I will take all that energy and bouncing off the walls any day for a kid who genuinely loves others!

Over the past year he has played soccer (hated it), t-ball (loved it), football (tolerates it) and golf (loves the golf cart and being with his daddy).  He has just lost his first two teeth (bottom front) in the last two weeks and poor thing literally lost one of them but the tooth fairy gave him money anyways:)
 He does everything on his own time.  The more you push him the more he doesn't have interest.
Over the summer he went from being terrified of the water to completely teaching himself to swim....wish I could take credit for that.  I have shown him a thousand times how to tie his shoes and then one day about a month ago, he just sat down and did it all by himself.  I am learning that giving him a little time is all he needs.

He is also a very simple little kid.  I tried and tried to get him to have a swimming party this year but he just didn't want one.  He wanted a "special day" to do whatever he wanted instead.  So that is exactly what we did and even then, he wanted a pretty low key day and loved every minute of it.
The very best part of Tegan is that he knows he is my baby and he has no problem with it.  Over the last two weeks he has suddenly been asking me to rock him to sleep at night and I have been more than happy to!
 This little boy has taught me when to speed up and when to slow down.  He has taught me that life should be fun and full each and every day.  If you are a mother, you know how much my heart loves him but only those that have lost a baby will know how much my heart needed him as my rainbow baby!
 There is no little boy in this entire world that is better than my sweet T!
Happy 6th Birthday to my little man!
