happy birthday jake

JAKE


it's my son's birthday today. hard to believe he's 17 years old. in some ways, it feels like it was just yesterday that i was in the hospital giving birth to him. it definitely doesn't feel like 17 years ago.


he was such a fun loving toddler. i have so many pictures of my cute, loving, curious, bright, mischievious, sensitive, and good-natured little boy. this is one of my favorites. he's not a toddler anymore. i've watched him grow each year and go through all the normal phases. he's now 17 and a well rounded kid. smart, social, responsible, and caring.

jake, it's a true blessing to have you as my son. it's been a pleasure watching you grow up to be the fine young man you are today. i could not be more proud of all of your accomplishments and who you are. i look forward to watching you as you go into your final year of high school and then onto college. i know great things are in store for you. thank you for being such a cool kid and a son we can be proud of. i love you more than mere words can express.
