HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!
I will always associate my dad with flowers and flowers with my dad. He is able to pay for dental work with flowers. He magically brings the fruit trees to bloom long before it's time. Each room in the house is brought to life by the addition of his flowers. Even the animals are lured (much to his dismay) into the yard because of his ability to grow the most scrumptious of flora and fauna. These things are all a reflection of his life as well. He is creative and innovative in solving problems. He doesn't allow life to become mundane and keeps you guessing. People enjoy being around him, lured in by his generosity and sincerity.
I love him! Happy Birthday DAD! Hope Eli gets to share this day with such a great man!

How great would that be for them to share a birthday. At nearly noon it isn't looking promising. You never know!

He really knows how to enjoy life, doesn't he?

Ashley, I hear that your sweet baby boy is here. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you. I hope that everything went well and that you are on the road to recovery. The first 2 months are the very hardest, especially with nursing, but then I promise it gets way better. When you get a minute, I would love to see pictures of Eli. Yeah, now you can sleep on your tummy! :) :) :)
