Right in the middle of a conversation he will look me straight in the eyes, sometimes with a hand in my hair or resting on my back, and say "I love you, Bammie." Like a morning songbird he tells of his heart. James does not believe in waiting for good-bye hugs and kisses or bedtime prayers to tell others they are important to him.
Any time is good. And really, why wait?
Today, before cake and before we slide and bounce at the Monkey House, I'm going to hold your little face close and say "James, I love you so so much." Maybe, just this once, I will get to say it first.
With grateful hearts here are some of our favorite moments from your first three years. Happy Birthday, James ~ With all our love, Papa and Bamma (February 10, 2018)
