Happy Birthday, Bret!

31 years ago today, the Labor and Delivery nurses let out a collective gasp as the doctor welcomed you into the world...all 10 lbs. 11 oz. of you!

And through the years you grew...

Photobucket

And, grew...

Photobucket

And, grew.

Photobucket

You are a son...

Photobucket

Photobucket

A brother...

Photobucket

A husband...

Photobucket

A father...

Photobucket

And, a friend.

You've loved with all your heart, but have now come to know what it means to love unconditionally and unceasingly.

Photobucket

Your accomplishments are many, and your flaws are few. You are deserving of much, but ask for nothing. And even though it is your birthday today, every day we spend with you is a gift. Before I even had to ask, God answered my prayers by bringing you into my life.

Happy Birthday, Bret! We love you!

What a sweet post! Cannot believe he was that big. I was 9 lbs, 9 oz. when I was born, and I thought I was big. Hope y'all have a wonderful birthday celebration. :)
