A YEAR WI TH MY FAMI LY Celebrating Each Moment

door and pick him up to say goodbye, he makes a fuss when I put him back down. He doesn’t want me to leave, which feels pretty good as a dad. We’ve also reached the point where Levi wants to get into everything, especially snacks. If my wife has ice cream, he wants some. No matter what I eat, Levi wants it too. I’d like to think he inherited his love of food fromme. Levi is also a big fan of playing. Since he’s just turning one, playing is really his favorite thing to do. I work a lot, but when I’m home, I am glad to have time available to watch him play and to play with him. It’s a great thing. I’m amazed by howmuch Levi looks like his older brother. At first, Jerome wasn’t too happy about having a baby around. He was used to being an only child and getting all of his mom’s attention. Jerome still wants attention, like any kid, but at times he lets Levi be the focus. They’re both still so young, but they get along really well. I can already see Jerome as a great big brother. I don’t have any brothers, just three sister, so I’m excited to watch how they’ll grow up and interact as siblings. This past Easter, my wife and I were able to get family photos with both the boys. Levi didn’t smile, but he let us take pictures of him with his brother and didn’t start crying. It was really nice to be able to capture the memories of what our family is like today. The last year went by so quickly. Our boys are small now, but it’s only a matter of time before they’re going to school or getting ready for their first dates! Being a parent is a balancing act of planning for the future while also living in the moment. You want to be ready for what comes next, but you also don’t want to miss out on what’s happening today. Right now, I’m really happy to live in the moment for each day. I’ve always wanted to be a dad, and I’m so blessed to have my wife and our two sons in my life. I am happy to celebrate Levi’s first birthday and every birthday with my sons as they grow.

This month, I’m excited to celebrate my son’s first birthday. Levi was born on July 12, 2018, and the last year has been really great.

Levi has reached the point where he’s really aware of people around him. When I come home after work, he’s always looking for attention fromme. He wants to play and sit on my lap. He also knows when I’m about to leave for the day. When I’m heading to the
