February is the birthday month in my family. A grand total of 6 cousins, my dad and my sister all celebrate the day of their birth in this short month. My dad and my sister, just a day a part. So, since I can’t be there for all of the birthdays, a short tribute: (in order)
Jamie – “James” – I’m gonna make it to Portland one of these days! I’m proud of you for moving out there and making it!
Ryan – I know you won’t read this, because you are so young, but maybe your Grandpa will tell you that I wished you a happy birthday! I love you buddy!
Annie – There are times I can’t believe how old you are! You are growing into a beautiful young lady!
Alison – I’m so thankful for the way that, despite a rough start, we have become friends. Sometimes I forget how grown up you are, then I remember that you are getting married!! (oh yeah…everyone, my little sister is getting married!!!!) I can’t wait to stand beside you on your special day! I love ya sis!
Dad – I love that I talk to you about most anything, you are usually one of the first people that I go to with most everything. Thank you for all of your advice and for always listening. Love you!
Daniel – You make me laugh and I am so excited for you as you growing in your new relationship and work towards finishing school.
Gregory – The first great-grandchild! You are growing into quite the young man and I have loved watching you grow up!
Laura – “Lolly” – I can’t believe you are going to be 21! I love that we have grown into cousins that no longer seperate by age group – I love spending time with you and can’t wait to plan all kinds of mischief at Ali’s wedding together! 🙂
