Happy 19th Birthday!

Tyler,
It's hard to believe it's been 19 years since that giant, chubby, almost 10 pound baby entered my world. You were a huge joy on that day, and you have only grown to be more of a joy as the years have flown by. I am loving having a front seat to the action of you become an incredible man. I love how intentional you are with your friends and family. I love how you take life decisions seriously and are so prayerful and thoughtful about them. I am so proud of your work ethic and how you treat others. You are a blessing to so many. You make me laugh every day and it's really been fun having you around all the time this summer. I love you so much, Tyler. Happy birthday!
