Thirty years ago today on a clear Spring day, you were born to your parents in much the same way we just welcomed a baby boy. I imagine that your mom sat in her hospital bed and held you and gazed into your baby blues...wondering what this life would hold for you. I wonder if she knew how funny you'd be? Or if she knew that you possessed a drive and an optimism that most people do not. I wonder if she realized that you would be wise beyond your years and too witty for your own good. Did she realize what an incredible father you'd turn out to be? That your very presence would make your daughter squeal with glee. Did she realize that you would make such a wonderful husband? The best partner in life that a girl could ask for?
Happy birthday, my love!
I am so infinitely grateful that you were born. There are no words to describe the ways in which your love has strengthened me. I will always adore you.

PS...I should've met you in the sandbox.

having fun in the bath (photos taken hours before Jack's arrival. Little did we know!)

At a time when the whole world seems to revolve around your baby brother...
I just wanted to say I love you.'ll always be my baby, too.
