It is not easy to be crafty and winsome at the same time, and few accomplish it after the age of six.

Dear Johnny,

You are such a good buddy of all of us.  I must admit that the more you grow, the better fun we have together.  We stack cubes, we roll a ball, we play chase, we hide and seek, we do charades, and we even learn to draw.  Shelby, too, is curious what would you come up with next, and she follows you around fatefully, unafraid and friendly.  What I love best about our games together is that you are so responsive to both praise and guidance, and that you show me that I can trust you to take care of yourself.  You are careful, and when you get hurt you take it well.  It's really such a joy to be with you, baby.  Thanks for that!
