31 Years

31 years ago today my very favorite person was born.

31 years ago today my very favorite person was born on Earth Day. (I don't think his parents knew how prophetic that was.)

31 years ago today my very favorite person started the long journey of becoming the incredible person he is today.

Here are just a few reasons why I love my very favorite person:

Our son wants to be just like him.

He does crazy things with the baby (usually when I'm not around).

Exhibit A:

(I came around the corner to find him holding Abram up like this, just staring at the two of them in the mirror.)

Exhibit B:

(Don't ask because I don't know either.)

He's a cuddler.

(Although it looks like Abram might still be trying to find out how much of a cuddler he is.)

He practices what he preaches.

(Planting a tree today with the kids for Earth Day)

He's been known to take Henry and Ruby out on all-day adventures just to give me a break.

And most of all, because he takes good care of us.

Happy Birthday Scotty!
We love you!

I forgot one: He's funny. After posting this I emailed him to make sure he'd see it and he said he was disappoined that I couldn't come up with 31 different reasons that I love him. He said, "After all, this is my Baskin Robins year -- 31 flavors of Scott."
