Today is my nephew Briggs’ second birthday. Words cannot explain how much joy this little boy has brought into my life. Since the day we found out about him, (which happened to be the day Ryan and I got engaged…talk about an unforgettable day!) he has been a part of my heart. He is such a smart, talkative, lovable and crazy kid who never fails to put a smile on my face. I have been able to witness every major milestone in his life so far and have loved every second of it. I can’t wait to continue watching him, along with his sister and his cousin, grow up together.
I am so grateful for the special relationship we have with this boy. When he first started talking, he couldn’t say his K sounds very well, so he ended up calling me “Gaga.” He also obviously couldn’t say his R sounds yet, so he calls Ryan “Bub,” which is what Ryan’s brother Nate has always called him. And of course, he LOVES his “Baby Kinsie!” He will dance around her, sing songs to her, and tell her that he loves her. Nothing makes my heart melt more!
Even though Ryan and I don’t know where life will take us once he is finished with med school, I hope that Kinsie can grow up with her cousins nearby. It is obvious that they already love each other so much. Briggs is such a special boy and I thank God every day for placing him in our lives!
We love you to the moon and back, our sweet Briggs!
Love… Bub, Gaga, and Baby Kinsie
