It’s your birthday already, Punkin Doodle! You sure have had a big year! You have grown so much — to size 3T, to be exact — and you are showing your personality more and more every day.
You LOVE animals, and you routinely dump out Bubba’s entire animal box onto the living room floor. You don’t exactly love cleaning them up later, though.
You LOVE to read every book you can find — especially The Big Hungry Bear — but you don’t really love it when people won’t read to you ABSOLUTELY RIGHT NOW!
You regularly sing and dance, and it’s never quite okay for the music to stop playing. It’s always, “Uh-oh! Mom! Mom! MAMAAAAA!”
Mama cuddles are your favorite, especially right after you wake up, but you usually don’t want cuddles from anyone else. (And that’s usually okay with me!)
The rest of your time is filled with drawing; coloring; building; going on bear hunts with Bubba; playing catch with Daddy; asking Mama if you can watch
Mickey, Owlegories, or Letter Factory; and discovering letters all around your world and telling people what they say. You are very busy and very focused, whatever it is you find to do!
Lukie Babe, you have brought such spirit and joy to our home in the last two years! You see the donkey in every horse, and respond with a resounding HEE-
HAW! Your cheeky smile lights up our world, your “mohs” charm us, and your “oh” in
place of “yes” delights us. You are stalwart in every way, and I’m so glad God made you that way. I can’t wait to see how He will continue to use you to point others to His goodness, grace, and joy. It’s a very great honor to be your mama. I love you so! Happy birthday, Punky!
