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!
