He is getting so big already!
A whole new world…
Introducing him to the world today.
Wishing my father a very happy 60th birthday today! Thank you for always being there for me for the past (almost) 26 years, and (along with my mom) supporting (or warning me against) all the decisions I’ve made, good and bad.
I hope to be even just half the father you have been to me, and not a day goes by where I don’t see more of you in myself - I will always look up to you as the greatest teacher, mentor, hero, backbone and father a son could have.
Here’s to another 60-100 years (some of which might be in the form of a robot)!
Love you, and hope to see you soon!
To Tiffani - my amazing second half, my strength and happiness. The one person who entered my life just last summer and so dramatically and in so many ways changed it forever.
The woman who has loved me unconditionally ever since, has never tried to change who I am - and who I can ALWAYS depend on. I feel amazingly blessed to have a wife who loves me for the person I am, and the person I strive to become as time carries on. The woman who proudly wears my last name, and who’s family has held me as their own since day one.
You are the best friend I never in my wildest dreams could have thought existed. You are my trust, my shield during even the roughest of times, and you will forever be my home. I know that we can get through anything together. I cannot wait for our child to enter this world with such an amazing mother.
I love you!
Back at the OB/GYN today, looks like the baby is making his move in the next few days…
I can’t believe the time is almost here to meet him, but then again I can’t wait to complete our family.
There are those times in your life you look back on - people telling you you’re moving too fast, or unsure of the decisions you make - and you almost agree with them…until you look at it through your own eyes, and realize that it’s absolutely perfect when you are so sure of your future.
A lot has happened in the last year, and yet all of it seems to fit right in. Getting married to the woman of my dreams, grabbing up the puppy I have always wanted (who has turned in to a 70 pound bundle of excitement), virtually doubling my salary at a great new company, moving in to a gorgeous new house, and soon - welcoming my son in to this world.
I don’t think I could ask for more, or for better. I hope others who are less secure with their thought of the future end up realizing that time comes and goes all too quickly, and right now is the time to realize your future is going to be here far faster than you think. At nearly 26, I think realizing that is probably one of the best risks I have taken in my life.
