Happy Birthday Jonathan, aka Jack

Note: Sorry this is posting late. My laptop is having problems with the battery so I had to wait until I could get to my desktop computer. I also apologize on the picture heavy content. Jessica

Today is this kid’s birthday:

Nine years ago today he looked like this:

Jack came into my life at a point when I had lost my joy. He makes me smile when no one else can. He is funny and bright and sharp as a tack.

He was the best baby out of all four of my kids. He rarely had to be told twice not to do something, and he was rarely ever upset enough to cry.

At two years old, we asked him what he wanted to be called, Jonathan or Jack, because he kept calling himself Jack. He wouldn’t answer to Jonathan. He chose Jack and has been Jack or Jack Jack ever since.

He is the friendliest and the most mischievous of my kids. He is fun to be with and has a very engaging mind. He loves trains, Legos, and non-fiction books. He is just the light of my life and has brought me more joy than I ever imagined one person could bring.

He makes me a better, happier person than I would have been without him.

So I hope your birthday was the best it could be for today, and I’m sorry you had to go to school on your birthday.

Happy Birthday kiddo!

Love, Mom
