In the hullabaloo of this week, I did not get this posted on Wednesday. But I didn't want to let it slip through the cracks! I love you, Tucker Kreg!

Dear Sweet Tucker:
Happy birthday, baby boy! I am so happy you are in our family. It has been pure joy to get to know you over this past year and I am praying for many, many more! You are such a delight to everybody who knows you and you have a very special place in all of our hearts.
I knew the moment you got here that you were your own little person and you have proved me right every day of your little life! You have to be the happiest little guy around-- I love that because it’s extremely hard to be around you and not be happy too. I’m praying that this part of your personality will stick with you all your life and that you will let God use you as a tool to bless others.
I also love your “go-with-the-flow” mentality. We are starting to realize that you do have an opinion on things, but as long as you’re with your loved ones, you’re just happy to be here! You are also clearly “driven.” You want to catch up to your big brother as quickly as possible and you are well on your way!
I love you so much more than I could ever describe in pen & paper. You are the perfect addition to our family & I can’t imagine the hole we would have if not for you. I’m so excited to continue to watch you grow & learn & I feel so blessed to be your mommy. I pray that as you continue to become more & more independent that you will know how much you are loved, that you will know joy every day regardless of the circumstances, and that you will have a strong desire to know & serve our Lord. I also pray that I will be the “right” kind of mother to you & that our gracious God will make up for my weaknesses so that you will be able to grow into the strong, godly leader that He wants you to be. You are my sunshine, Tucker Kreg!
