I Wubba.

What is Wubba?

Born on July 20, 1999 and he was our first. He was welcomed by so many. (My Dad likes to tell the story about the filet mignon Barone's dinner that was delivered to the hospital room for all.) The first grandchild and nephew for my husbands family. The second boy for my side of the family. Needless to say, his arrival was greatly anticipated...and 12 years ago at about 5 o'clock in the evening the Wubba arrived. (At some point today he will make note of this and announce it as if it should be marked for all time.) Wubba is significant.

Everything to Wubba is a big deal. He likes big parties and is generally extravagant on his view on life. He greats people with playful huge enthusiasm. (I should take note.) He knows how to make people feel important. He is a fine young man with a very wise sensitive soul. He senses people and their pain. He soothes crying babies. He call him the baby whisperer. He prays for people and healing. He loves to love. (hmmm...this sounds like someone else I know.) He also likes to shoot stuff, beat on the drums, listen to music, perform, play baseball and almost all video games. Recently he also seems to enjoy being a bit sassy. Wubba is diverse.

Wubba writes songs and poems effortlessly. He is incredibly athletic. He learns things very quickly. (This is somewhat annoying because he did not get it from me.) He likes to have his back tickled. (He definitely got this from his Dad.) He likes to watch movies. Wubba is curious.

His room stinks, and is always messy. However he knows where everything is. He would forget is head if it was not attached to his body, on most days. He likes to joke and play pranks. (Mostly on his sister.) Wubba is messy.

He loves to be with his family. He loves animals. He wants 12 babies. He often asks questions about "what he was like in my tummy" and loves to hear stories about when he was a baby. He is also interested about love and relationships. (Not the best source for him.) He worries about if he is going to be a good Dad and how he is to provide for his family. He wants to be a pro baseball player, actor and video game tester and live in a giant castle. I am sure he is going to make some lucky girl very happy. Wubba is a prince.

He is my son, my first born, my heart, he is the most beautiful boy in the whole world to me. Wubba is love.

Happy Birthday.

I Wubba you.
