Happy 11th Birthday Daniel


Your feet dangle,
out of the blue Spiderman quilt.
The room is quiet,
but magical
as my heart dances
while watching you sleep.
Your bunny tucked under your arm
even though you are older,
even though you are wise beyond your years.
You walk through life
with conviction,
extending your generosity to others.
Your sweetness touching those
you love.
A little boy living and dreaming big dreams.
I linger in your room,
I inhale the moments,
storing them in my heart,
wanting this to last.
Giving you wings,
to follow your dreams,
with hope that you never fly far.


My sweet Daniel,
You are 11 today. It seems like yesterday you were born and you brought so much joy into our life.
You are an incredible human being. You are kind and generous and you give of yourself to others. You are funny and you are thoughtful. I tell you every day how much I love you, and adore every moment we spend together.
 You make me proud and I love you forever!

  1. Happy birthday Daniel, just thought of the beautiful Loggins and Messina "Danny's Song". Love: Your bunny tucked under your arm
    even though you are older. Older but still young and precious.

  4. Feet dangling out of the spiderman quilt...love that image! I remember this age...I remember hoping that the 'boy' would linger. That play could still be innocent and adventurous for as long as possible. This is a lovely write - capturing this in-be-tween time so well. Enjoy (as it sounds like you are) every second!!

  5. Happy Birthday,Daniel!

    He sounds a remarkable person, ayala, and a credit to you.

    Yes, they grow so fast -- too fast! But knowing they do and absorbing all those magic moments as you do, makes the time even more precious.
