It's hard to believe that it's been 7 years since that stormy, muggy June night that John made me wait until 6:26 am until he was finally born. I vividly remember that even before he was out of the womb he was screaming and crying, begging for food.
After he was fed and cleaned up, he settled down a bit and has been a great kid for the last seven years. He loves baseball more than anything and is big fan of the Yankees and SportsCenter. I had a great time coaching him on the Marlins this year and on the Orioles last year. I hope he never loses his love for the game.
John is a fun kid and enjoys his classmates and especially gym class. he is a smart guy and had a good year in first grade. Like me, he is a bit quick to anger and more than a little rambunctious. I am sure he will always be a bit of handful for his teachers.
I have alwyas loved that John wants to be a part of everything and is eager to help me whenever he can. Most of the projects I have done around the house have been completed with him at my side. It's a great thing!
John is loving and sensitive, and is especially good with his little sister Emma. I am proud of the moments that he shows her special attention and caring. I hope that they are always as close as they are now.
I had a great day celebrating your birthday with you today, John and I look forward to our part in Moorestown.
Happy 7th Birthday Buddy!!!!
