Happy Birthday Mo-Mo

Mo-Mo.  That’s what you call yourself, and it fits you well.

This year was a big for you as you grew from a baby to a little boy.  You’re happy and carefree attitude brightens everyone’s day.

You were loved by grandparents that have raised you almost every day.  Papa Tom and Nana Mary watched you on Monday’s and Papa Rick and Nana Ruth traveled from Hayward each week to watch your Tuesday-Thursday.  You are an incredibly lucky boy, and returned the favor every day with hugs as they left for the day.  You developed a special bond with Papa Rick, helping him will all of his projects.  Somehow I think Papa Rick developed a special bond with you too.  It was wonderful watching you two together.

You worked hard to keep up with your brother too.  You fear very little and are determined not to be left behind.  Watching a friendship unfold before our eyes make us realize just how lucky we are to have two happy little guys.  While not without your moments, you and Owen are brothers to the core.

This year had it’s challenges too.  You had a few trips to the hospital, including two minor surgeries.  At the beginning of the year, you feared doctors, but frequent visits seemed to cure that fear.  In the world, 2008 was a remarkable year.  The economy self destructed on scale few could imagine, and Barack Obama made history being elected president.  We’re not out of the woods yet, but I’m thankful you were around each night to remind us what is really important.  In fact, my favorite moment of each day is when you and I call it a day.  Each and every night we sit in your room with the lamp on reading a few books.  We then say night-night to mama, bro-bro, papa, nana, and Mo-Mo.  When I ask for a kiss, you always say “no”, but then reach up, grab my face and give me a kiss anyway.

These quiet little moments surely won’t last much longer, but they will always be some of my favorite memories.  Mo-Mo, you make life a lot of fun, and your mom and dad are very proud of the year you’ve had.  Happy birthday buddy!  Onto year three!

Here are some of our favorite moments of this great year.  Turn up the volume and enjoy!

  2. Craig,
    Once again you did a wonderful little project. I get tears in my eyes every time you do one of these. They are quickly becoming a required event each year. Thanks for sharing.
