Sailor is growing so fast. The things she can already do amaze me on a daily basis. She can wave back at you and tonight she said "bye bye." The more I see, the more I think about how just recently we were experiencing all of these things with Ruby. olivia always talks about how sad it is that they are moving so fast and before we know if they will be older and not want to spend time or play with us. It didn't really hit me until tonight how right she is.

olivia always tells people it is so funny to her that we have two children because when me met, my Myspace page said "I don't want kids." It is true, and at the time I didn't. Looking back I don't think I ever realized what it would really be like. In my head it was constant screaming and diaper changing and giving up all your money and time for a child who will certainly take you for granted, might even hate you and won't realize all you did for them or appreciate you until well into their adulthood when you are old, broke and quite possibly senile.

It is all those things but it is also so much more. I love my wife more than anything and we made our children together. They are part of us and daily we can influence and shape them in the hopes that one day they will make a difference and do something great for what will be their world. At the very least I just hope they are good, well-adjusted people who appreciate life in all the ways I feel olivia and I do.

Forgive me for being sentimental, its just who I am. I wish everyone could know the happiness I have found in my life.


  1. While at this point I'm pretty doubtful Jared & I will ever procreate, I gotta tell you, the romance of creating life with the person you love the most in this world trips me up every time.

  2. I am not going to's pretty awesome. A child is a gift you give each other that never stops giving. I am lucky to have been gifted twice...
