The Best 10

October 12, 1999 was the best day of my life.

That was the day that you FINALLY came into my world.

After 19 hours of labor, you decided to cooperate at exactly 12:01 AM. I reminded you that last night when you wanted to open a present, that if you hadn't been so stubborn you could have opened one, but since you were, you would have to just wait until TOMORROW!

Which you did, until 5:30 AM. Thanks, kid.

Your Auntie Kristi, Uncle Mike, and Charlie sent you this Lego set. Of course you had to try to put it together before school. I love that about you. And so much more.

Having you in my life for the last 10 years has been the best 10 years of my life. You are my son, my boo, my honeybear. We both love nachos, M&M's, reruns of "Friends", and Jim Gaffigan. We have the same eyes, the same hair, and more love for each other than I ever imagined. You have saved my life many times, been my truest little friend, and the best thing I could have ever created.

Happy Birthday, Riley. I love you to the moon and back, a hundred, million times.
