It is a certain Master WD Swart’s birthday today…
You have started big school just over a month ago and you are really enjoying it. You passion is and will probably forever remain trucks! You know trucks back to front – you know what they transport and your truck collection is your pride and joy!
You love dogs! Whenever you visit us over weekends you are in the garden. Diesel is your favourite dog, even though Lallie is technically “your” dog. For months you have been asking how old Lallie is, always wanting to know when he will be one year old. My boy, Lallie is finally one year old!
You are an awesome big brother. Your love for your brothers amazes and inspires. Logan loves spending time with you over weekends. He literally counts the sleeps until he will see you again, from the moment you go home after a weekend visit. You two fight from time to time, as is appropriate for brothers! You guys are also impossibly naughty and a handful together. I guess that is what it means to be a boy!
Your favourite pass time when it comes to Oliver, is to sit next to him. Very often you don’t say a word, you simply hold his hand and sit in silence. It is beautiful to see and I am so excited to see how your relationship evolve in the coming year!
It saddens us that we don’t get to wake up next to today. We don’t get to wake up in the dark morning hours to light the required number of birthday candles and quietly walk to the side of your bed, cake in hand. We don’t get to sing happy birthday to you in person, we don’t get to cuddle in bed while we all watch in anticipation for you to open your birthday presents.
That doesn’t mean, you have not been in our thoughts the whole day!
Happy birthday WD! We will celebrate the weekend!
