Covered in cake and icing,
your smile stretched ear to ear.
A single candle celebrates,
the joy of your first year.
We sing Happy Birthday,
you play midst wrap and bows.
We marvel at how you touched our lives,
just one year ago.
I remember the first time I held you,
kissed your head, whispered your name.
You've changed our lives forever,
Our hearts will never be the same.
As a child you'll love this day,
for all the sweets and presents too.
parents an Auntie I love your day,
for the gift I got was you.
Each year we'll add another candle,
so proud to see you grow.
But always with the memory,
of your first day long ago.

I found this poem online and thought it was so sweet. I knew my sister and my parents (Grami and Grandpa) would enjoy reading it, so I wanted to share it for them. My sister put so much work into planning Phillip's birthday party today, I know that this day is extra special for her. Good job sister, you're one amazing Mommy!
Happy Birthday sweet Phillip! This past year, being your Auntie has been truly amazing.
