What would you be doing on your first birthday, Koen? Toddling around in our living room? Snuggling with us in bed? Chasing Asa? Perhaps ripping open your very first birthday present.
What outfit would you be wearing – a Riders shirt, the red outfit that says “Awesome, like my dad” or a light-coloured “Mommies sweetest boy” dress shirt with a pair of cute shorts?
And little would you know we would have a delicious cake ready for you for later. With one candle, right in the middle. And your name written on the cake. We’d have some people over because you shouldn’t finish that cake all by yourself!
Today, May 7, 2014, is such a beautiful day. The sun is out. Fragrant flowers and cards fill our living room. Candles are lit. Messages on Facebook congratulating you and remembering you.
Here’s to many, many more birthday’s, Koen. We love you very much!
Mom, Dad, Sam (& Asa)
