Happy Birthday to my first boy crush, Ace Dumont! The moment he came out we were all in love...with his sparkling eyes and angelic hair, we became obsessed. Ace was a game changer. His sweet personality and silly smile broke all of our hearts.
My favorite moment with him (I am on a daily quest to have more whilst I force my love on him as he runs away screaming.) was at 3 I walked into Tom & Mieke's house and there was Ace, sitting in the living room chatting away with the painters telling them endless stories while his cute lisp stuck on every other word. Then he noticed me and I became the lucky one. I got to hear about tigers in the trees and how he rode them. 5 minutes into the story I went to check on Mieke to say hi, came back to Ace and his story continued. It was the moment I knew I wanted a kid. Ace is just that magical.
We are stunned by his silliness and sun shininess and enthralled with his empathy and love for his family. To see a 10 year old with such deep love for his brothers and parents is mind blowing. It's no surprise since he comes from the most loving parents and his 2 brothers are just as spectacular but to witness it grow in him every year is a gift.
One day he will let me hug him again and until then I will keep chasing him to catch a ray of his sunshine.
Happy Birthday Ace! We love you!
