Happy Birthday Dear Eric, Happy Birthday To You!


My first thought this morning is that we need to get more pictures with daddy in them. I think this one is about a year old. After that my thoughts venture into birthday territory...how lucky we all are that 37 years ago our Eric came into the world! What an amazing man we have in our lives. Jack loves daddy because he's happy all the time, and loves to snuggle. Max loves daddy because he makes our house "full of laughing." They both love that he's silly, chases them, jumps around, and makes gross sounds. Zöe loves that he feeds her all the yummy foods she loves, and takes her for adventure walks outside in the backyard. I love Eric for all of those same reasons (except the gross sounds), and for the three children who expressed them. I love Eric for making our lives full of fun with enthusiasm, energy, and light. Happy Birthday to Eric, and Happy Birthday to us. Today we celebrate our good fortune that you were born!

I couldn't agree with you more! He is an exceptional person!

I love him because he makes me smile and his quick wit brings easy laughter. I love him because he is wise in addition to having vast knowledge of a myriad of trivial facts. I love him because he perseveres in the midst of stress, and never complains. I love him because of his cheerful, upbeat personality that makes being with him always a pleasure. I could go on and on...
His family is blessed to be able to call him "husband" and "dad". And I am so happy and proud to call him "son."
