To My Middle Child On His Birthday

Written by Angela Atkinson


My son Noah turned five today, and I cannot believe how quickly the time has flown by. It seems like just yesterday he was a newborn baby, and yet here he is today, five years old. He’s got his own personality, his own very specific opinions, and he is already becoming a really cool little person.

Noah was the most peaceful and sweet little baby who rarely gave me a reason to feel stressed. I dubbed him “My Sweetheart” because he was so loving and cuddly all the time. As he gets older, he maintains that sweetness about him, but I know that becoming the middle child has given him pause. Since he’s not officially “the baby” any more, he sometimes feels left out of things, especially when the baby requires my attention.

To help him cope and help him feel special, my husband and I each do special little things with him. Today, Noah’s daddy is going to take just him to the park and get him ice cream. And earlier, I took cupcakes to his preschool, with a special one just for the birthday boy included.

Sunday, we’re giving him a birthday party, but tomorrow I will take him shopping and maybe to lunch too.

Today and every day, it’s important to let our children know how much they matter to us, as individuals and as our babies. Even if you have ten kids, do what you can to make each one feel special and important to you, and do what you can to know each of them individually.

To Noah, I say, Happy birthday, my Sweetheart. I love you and I will always, always love you and be here for you.

xoxo
