Happy birthday Jude!

Dear Jude,
You are nine years old today. I remember so well the day you were born. You came so fast the doctor didn't even make it in time. I still remember the anticipation of not knowing whether we were having a girl or a boy, and the joyful tears in Daddy's eyes when he announced it was another boy. We were so happy and so proud. You have brought so much joy to our family these past nine years. I can see you have a lot of the same characteristics as your dad and that makes me feel confident you will make wise choices in life and will be a wonderful husband and father someday. We were so proud this year when you-all on your own-asked Dad to baptize you...in the bathtub of all places. :) We are so thankful that out of all the parents in the world, God picked us to be your parents. We love you. Happy Birthday my Big Man!!
