Well, the day is almost over, and I am writing this at 5:03pm which is the exact time that you entered the world 9 years ago.
It feels like only yesterday that I held you in my arms and just gazed at you in awe.
I will never stop gazing at you in awe.
I hope that you have had a wonderful day today with some our closest friends and family. You spent most of the time on the trampoline, which is pretty much your favourite spot in the backyard!
I know that life can be a struggle for you, and that things are really hard at times. But please know that you are very very much loved, and that your Dad, brother and me are always here to love and support you.
You are growing into a very big kid and your confidence and maturity is really showing now
Ryley, I hope that this year you continue to be happy. Continue to gain confidence, and find ways of doing things your own way, like you always have done.
Your Dad and I are so very proud of you. You are our heart and soul.
Lots and lots of Love always.
From Mum and Dad.
I will get some pictures up later on or tomorrow. Right now I am exhausted! We have been up since 5:30am because Ryley was SO excited about his birthday! He has been spoilt rotten and we have enjoyed a great day today! A big thankyou to those that could make it, and those that travelled!
