Baby, you're a firework!

today you turn 12. 
Twelve years ago you turned my world 
upside down.
Nothing has been the same since.
Born on the 4th of July, 
you were my 'firework'...
in every way!

You amaze me.  Really.  
I can't believe someone like you
came from someone like me.
You are the best of your daddy and me,
and then some.

You're mine, but you've always been 
God's first.
That's why you're

When we named you, we knew then
what we know now:
you are destined for great things.

So I dedicate one of your favorite songs to you today, 
because Katy said it just as well as I could have:

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July

Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth

Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst

Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down

Happy Birthday, Buddy Boy!
I love you much, more and most (so there!) ;>
