Almost a year ago, Mark joined our family! I have a few hours left before I have to fully acknowledge the fact that I have a one-year old because he was born at 10:23 pm. But, really, today’s his birthday and so, I just need to face facts and say,
“Happy Birthday, Mark!!”
It’s hard to remember what life was like before we had this precious boy in our family! He loves us, especially loves his sister, and is full of laughter and energy. He loves to eat, loves to wrestle, and always wants to be with Ellie, which is sometimes good and sometimes bad. Just yesterday, Ellie asked Nik to bring Mark back into our playroom after Mark had crawled away, because, in her words, “Ellie needs her brother!”
In short, we can’t imagine life without him.
We love you, Mark!
