I don't even know where to begin- 

Henry, they told me you probably wouldn't walk or talk. They told me don't expect too much from you. They didn't know if you were going to make it... Well here you are, five years, thirty surgeries, loosing your Dad, getting two new brothers, moving, going to pre school and taking on the world daily. You're pretty amazing! 

Not only do you walk, You run!  You fight with your little brother and you know how to throw a punch!  You dance! I laughed so hard tonight when you made up a bedtime dance. 

As for talking, you sing! You work so hard to talk!! You go to speech twice a week at the university and you get it at school too! Your speech is improving leaps and bounds! I understand you more than I don't and you're learning to improve the way you talk! You have strong opinions and even stronger emotions! You can go from levelheaded to flying off the handle in an instant but you generally return to my sweet boy pretty quickly. Oh and you know how to work a crowd! 

You are such a good brother, little and big!  You miss your sister when she is gone and oh how Si looks up to you, as I am sure Alden will too. Silas misses you when you're at school and is always excited for you to return home. 

You're my tender hearted sweet boy. You always seem to know when I need a hug or just need you to come sit by me.  I can't believe I have been lucky enough to have you as my boy! I thank God daily that he saw fit to give you to me.  I love my Henry boy!
