And, while you are at it, you will make everyone proud. You will make your mom proud. And, you will most definitely make your dad proud.
Be clean and be true. I love you!

I try to make her smile.
I try to make her laugh.
I try to make her feel special.
I try to make her feel loved.
I try to let her know she is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I try to deserve her love and companionship.
I try to let her know that I am the luckiest man alive.
I let her know I love her very much...more than life itself.
You are my life
My heart and soul
The truest friend I've ever known
You are my world"

We are lucky to have Alexis living with us. She and your mommy are so close. They are best friends. They love to joke around, tell ridiculous jokes, laugh at nothing, and dance around like crazy women. It is kind of funny and disturbing to observe. They leave each other very much and would do anything for one another.

This weekend, I admired nature and was able to snap those pictures.
Just remember to slow down a little and enjoy the world around you. It is a gift from your Heavenly Father. He wants you to enjoy and appreciate it.
And, like Alice Walker says, "I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it."
I love you boys.

right away that they were meant to be there, to serve
some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help
you figure out who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be - a roommate, a
neighbor, a professor, a friend, a lover, or even a
complete stranger - but when you lock eyes with them,
you know at that very moment they will affect your
life in some profound way.
Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible,
painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you
find that without overcoming those obstacles you would
have never realized your potential, strength,
willpower, or heart.
Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness,
and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of
your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they
may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight
flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and
comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect your life, and the
success and downfalls you experience, help to create
who you are and who you become. Even the bad
experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are
sometimes the most important ones.
If someone loves you, give love back to them in
whatever way you can, not only because they love you,
but because in a way, they are teaching you to love
and how to open your heart and eyes to things.
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your
heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn
about trust and the importance of being cautious to
whom you open your heart.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take
from those moments everything that you possibly can
for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk
to people that you have never talked to before, and
listen to what they have to say.
Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your
sights high. Hold your head up because you have every
right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and
believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in
yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in
You can make anything you wish of your life. Create
your own life and then go out and live it with
absolutely no regrets.
And if you love someone tell them, for you never know
what tomorrow may have in store.
Learn a lesson in life each day that you live! Today
is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was
it worth it?

Or, you may have some friends that call to let you know about the latest deals at Babies 'R Us to save you some money. And, they may even offer to give you some old baby stuff that you can trade in for 25% off new items you need. They will do this even though they could sell it to make some money for themselves. But, they are great people so they think of you and your family. Thanks Angie and Jeff!
You may have some friends that call you to let you know that they have bags of new baby clothes for you that can make your life a little easier. Thanks Jessica and Lara!
You may have friends that check up on your wife often to make sure she is doing well. They bring a smile and some much needed comfort to her face. Thanks Sam, Brittney, Kayla, and Bre!
You may have an old family friend that checks in with your wife to make sure someone is throwing her a shower. Thanks Samantha!
You may have a friend that is willing to offer advice at anytime and willing to call her mother who is a delivery nurse just to ease your mind. And, she may provide you with books and wisdom on her experience which is truly priceless. Thanks Steph!
You WILL have other family members that will help you any way they can. They will offer advice, help with necessary items for your upcoming bundles of joy, and just plain spoil your unborn child/children. Thanks Papi, Nanie, Mema, Tutu, Ash, Riss, and Lex!
And, anyone that I may have forgotten, please know just how grateful I am for your love and support.
She also provided us with a few boxes of diapers, so we can cover your little bums when you get here. Again, what a selfless act of kindness.
I cannot express in words all the gratitude in my heart at this time. I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for blessing me with two of his precious children. I am thankful to my beautiful, strong, and loving wife for carrying our boys. I am thankful to family and friends for all their love and support. I am just thankful!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Well boys, your room is coming along. For your infancy, you will be sounded by a bright yellow and bumble bees watching over you. Nice ones. Your mommy is so excited about your room and she has been working so hard on it. She is doing a wonderful job. And, to help, your Aunt Ash got a beehive to go in your room. Your Aunt Ash is so excited for the two of you to get her so you boys can play with your cousin Raiden!
Your mommy also finished her special shelves. The bottom shelf has two bumble bees watching over you. I always joke that they are your mommy and me. The bees are looking at an ultrasound picture of you boys. On the top shelf, mommy's favorite book "Love You Forever" sits. This book is very special to your mommy. Her mommy, your Mema, used to read it to her and her sisters. And, mommy and I will read it to you guys! It is a special book for our little family. The room gets closer and closer to being ready for your arrival everyday. It is a room full of love. Your mommy has put a lot of work into it because she loves you boys so much. I can never tell you guys enough how special she is, how much I love her, and how lucky we are to have her. We outnumber her 3 to 1, so we will have to SUPER nice to her at all times! She deserves it.
Your mommy is now 18 weeks pregnant with the two of you. She is growing bigger everyday because you boys are going bigger everyday. Still, everyday she gets more and more beautiful. She is about half way there since there are two of you. Lets all pray that the next 18 weeks go as smoothly as the first. Boston Jammer and Braxton Parker...I cannot wait to have you in my arms. I feel like the most lucky husband and father in the world already!
I love you boys very much! I love your mommy very much! And, I always will! My love grows everyday!
