Happy Birthday Brady!

January 19, 2013

Dear Brady:

I can't believe you are seven today!  It seems like just yesterday you were born.  So much has happened since then.  What a fun adventure!  I've learned a lot since I first held you in my arms.  We are "growing up" together.  

You are working hard at school and learning so much about life.  I am very proud of the person you are becoming.  You are a very bright, kind and compassionate little boy.  I want you to be the best You that you can be!

Here are a few scenes from the past year I thought you might like to see.  I can't believe how fast you are growing—before our eyes!

At Sherwood Park in Baltimore.

Fun in the hay!

I'm so glad I get to be your dad.  What a joy!  As I watch you grow, I continue to pray what I've prayed since you were a baby:

That God will fill your heart with dreams
And that faith will give you courage to dare to do great things.
That I would be here for you whatever this life brings.
And that my love gives you roots... and helps you find your wings.

Your mom and I look forward to celebrating with you today—and tomorrow.  

Happy birthday son!
