eight years ago today, chris and i  walked to the hospital and got our baby jack.

eight years ago today, our lives changed forever.  in ways i cannot even begin to describe.  in ways sometimes funny, scary, messy, silly, and joyful.

i simply cannot believe we've had him for eight. years. such a long time, and yet, the blink of an eye.

my dear jack, you are an amazing kid.  and an awesome big brother.   you are funny, smart, kind, and silly.  you love legos and games, reading, riding your bike, and running.  you are supremely loud and always in motion.  you are such a presence in our lives and we love you.

happy birthday.
