It's your day, buddy

5 short years ago, you entered our life in a dramatic and quick fashion and have since filled our hearts with more laughter, joy and happiness than we could have ever imagined.





Driving home from our vacation in Lake Havasu at 4 months pregnant, we were trying to come up with baby boy names.  We passed the very small town of Earp, CA and as we looked at each other we knew right then, "Wyatt" would be the name of our son.


This kid fills our home with so much laughter and love.

A true super hero, full of energy and full of joy.

Thank you for your amazing smile.  Thank you for your kind heart.  Thank you for caring about others.

Thank you for loving us as much as we love you.

Thank you for allowing us to show you around this world.  For allowing us to guide you and help you figure life out.  Thank you for playing with us.

Thank you for your patience as we learn together.



I want to protect you from hurt but I know you must experience it to grow.
I want to keep you little and in my arms but I know you have big plans here and I can't hold you back.
I want to love you forever and ever, and I will.  I promise you that.  

Happy 5th Birthday, buddy!  I love you!!
