you are SIX. say what? six? that can't be. but it is. and what and wonderfully awesome six years it has been. you, my little obi, are simply amazing. you came into this world as a happy, content baby, and have been so ever since.
you are a peacemaker. with a little bit of a kick every now and then. you are thoughtful. and heartfelt. you are funny and love to laugh. our favorite place to tickle you has always been right under your chin. you do this funny little through-the-teeth-raspy-laugh since you were a baby, that you still do that exact same way. too fun. we can't get enough of it. or you.
you have a freckle right in the middle of the back of your right hand that i simply adore. and oh how we love your hair. you have amazing, trademark hair. when we cut it recently you asked me if you could have your big hair back. and that you never wanted me to cut your big hair off ever again. i agree. i like your big, wild hair.
you are full of love. you give the best, longest hugs. the tight-around-your-neck-in-a-good-way-kind. you are never content with just 1 goodnight kiss. it's usually more like 20 or 30! you really are precious. and sweet. and kind. you are a thinker. you take in the world at a difference pace then your brothers. a little more methodical. you still have the cutest lips when you make plane sounds. i hope you never grow out of that.
and lately you hate to wear underwear. you dress yourself, and i always have to ask if you put on your underwear. and the answer is usually no. in fact, most of the time you go to school without underwear one too. and you hate jeans. you have a bit of a meltdown anytime i ask you to wear jeans to school. and if you do wear jeans, you can bet your aren't wearing underwear with them!!!
you still say "doggles" instead of "goggles". you say "thwelth" instead of "twelve". and you are obsessed with your stuffed animals big bear and carld dog. yes. you named him "carld". not to be confused with "carl".
i am beyond grateful for you, little orion. our obi.
you are loved so much. by so many.
you are a brightness in this world.
and in my life.
you are happiness.
and i love you.
