Happy 6th birthday (April 19th), Jude!!! Happy birthday to the boy who makes me smile all the time, to the boy who keeps my brain sharp, and has me asking Siri questions by the minute. Happy birthday to the be boy who knows more about geography than me, knows more presidents than I do, and let's face will probably be our smartest family member...if he isn't already. Happy birthday to the boy who thinks about and ponders God, is a life long Cardinal fan (as if he had a choice), loves the Dolphins (again probably wasn't a choice), and will watch golf. Happy birthday to the boy who doesn't like bubble gum, peanut butter, or soda. Happy birthday to the boy who fancies Casey's pizza, homemade pumpkin bread, and donuts. Happy birthday to the boy who likes lambie, has a tender heart, wants to travel the world, and always follows the rules. Happy birthday to our quietest, laid back, and most honest family member. Happy birthday to the realist. Happy birthday to the sleep tight don't let the bed bugs bite and if they bite, bite them back , actually, and your the best in the whole world, boy. Happy birthday to the boy who loves his sisters and asks for a brother daily. Happy birthday to the lefty with gaps in his teeth, dimples, and sea glass colored eyes. 

I love you sooooooooooooooooo much, you are such a blessing.
