Happy Birthday Buddy

2 years ago my brother called me and I wrote the following post-it note:

2 years ago the best little guy was born.
Which means, today is Jackson’s birthday.

When it comes to stuff like this I am not very good at words. I tried for quite a while to write something beautiful and touching. Something that conveyed just how much I love this little guy, but my words failed me, and they continue to do so. So instead of words I have decided to use photos, because I am much better with those. These are just a few of the many, many, many shots I have of Jackson from the last year. When I was going through them, I kept having to check the date and do the math to make sure these were during his second year and not his first. It is crazy when you realize how much he has grown and changed in the last year. I believe I have said this before, but it is in this last year that he has really shown his personality. He is not just an adorable baby anymore, but a real little person.

That post-it note is still stuck on my office wall (though I don’t think anyone calls him Jack as it just doesn’t suit him). And when I see it amidst all of the contact numbers for clients and notes about conversion rates and various regulations, it makes me smile.

Tomorrow is your birthday party and I can’t wait to spend the day with you!
I love you buddy.
