To a Special Birthday Boy

Just seven weeks after my son entered this world, my cousin and his wife welcomed a son to their family.

It's important to note that my cousin is more than just that. We have lived together on multiple occasions (through various family circumstances), and I am responsible for introducing him to his wife. He is like a brother to me.

We live only a mile apart, and it is highly likely that our sons will be best buds.

The crazy thing is, we are now blessed with pregnancies again - his wife and I are due within two months of each other. It's been such a joy to watch our little ones grow up together (they also have a daughter who is two).

And today is Jake's First Birthday! 

Happy Birthday, Jake!
