Happy Birthday Little Boy!

April 13, 2014.  It was 4 years ago on this day that my life was changed forever.  A life of being able to do what I want, when I want came to an end.  And the life of sacrifice, no sleep and me-in-4th-place (God, wife, son..) began.  The moment I saw him I cried, hard. ...

        Six months later…here comes the helmet!

        I cannot believe that 1/2 of a year has gone by since we’ve first met our little boy…seems more like a month ago.  People with kids have always said “Enjoy it while it lasts.  Time flies and before you know it they’ll be in college!”.  They weren’t joking.  We’ve already experienced our first ‘lasts’…last time...
