5 Years Old

You never realize how truly significant one moment can change your life. Change everything you know to be normal.

Until a child is born. 

 5 years ago today on November 16 at 2:49am, my oldest & first nephew, Riley Keith was born and our lives were forever changed.

He was the first child, first grandchild, first great-grandchild. You see where this is going, right?

He’s fearless (except when it comes to dogs), independent (except when he wants you to play hockey with him), a smooth-talker (except when he’s trying to talk me into “let’s play you’re in jail”), handsome and smart….(no exception on either of these qualities).

He loves hockey.

 He loves his friends & cousins.

He loves his Granddad.

 He loves his donuts.

 And in his own way, he loves his brother.

But more than anything, he is loved. More than I could ever write in a blog post or a Facebook status…he is loved. 

Happy 5th Birthday, Riley! Love you forever!
