Rylan’s party was quite a splash!! Here it is in pictures!

Dear Rylan, You are growing up way too quickly! It seems like you were born just yesterday and your mom and I were bringing you home from the hospital. Having you has definitely changed our lives. I thank God daily for such a blessing. You have changed my life in so many ways! First, I have to get up earlier in the morning.

I don’t know how or why mommy and I got so lucky, but we are super grateful. (And, haha to all you other parents and especially my parents!) I love you very much, son, and I am excited to see what your next year will bring to our family. Love, Daddy
