Happy birthday to our lovable, energetic, wild and super sweet baby Jake! Life in your eyes is like one big party. From the moment you wake up, to the moment you go to sleep–you never, ever, EVER stop moving. Ever. You love to play with trucks and cars and have recently started loving anything and everything Star Wars.
Earlier today when I asked you what you wanted to do, you said “Dump water on something.” That pretty much sums up what life with you is like. It’s expecting the unexpected, looking for fun in every situation and not being afraid to bring a little bit (or a lot) of love and laughter to each moment. Some times your Dad and I feel like we’re not sure where exactly all of your spunk and energy came from, but we know that we are blessed to be your parents and so lucky to have you as a part of our family.
You play hard and you love hard, and for all these things and more we will be forever grateful that you are our boy. I can’t wait to see where life takes you, or more appropriately in your case, where you are going to take your life. Thank you for reminding us that beauty and fun can be found all around us. From chasing a falling leaf, or clapping for motorcycles passing by, or when you’re just looking for something to “dump some water on,” you always show us that there is good and happiness just waiting to be found in this world.
I love you to the moon and back. More than you could ever know.
