19 years ago today Doug and I welcomed our second child and first son into our lives. Andrew was born at 9:45am and was my shortest, easiest labor (if you can call 14 hours short!)

Andrew has matured into such a responsible, dependable, hard working interesting adult. It has been so fun, and challenging at times, to watch him grow up.

Now onto 19 interesting, cool facts about Andrew ~

1-He has bright red hair.

2-He sucked his thumb as a baby.

3-He had a piece of my nightgown that he carried around when he was little. He called it a shushu.

4-He could throw a fit like no other child I've ever known.

5-He's a huge animal lover and also a hunter (go figure!)

6-He's decided to follow in his father's footsteps and be a farrier.

7-He got his driver's licence before his older sister.

8-He is NOT a picky eater.

9-He loves to hunt, fish, hike, and camp.

10-He's played soccer, baseball, roller hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse.

11-He broke his arm in ice hockey and his leg when he was skateboarding.

12-He had stitches in his leg.

13-He built a cabin in our woods until our landlords made him tear it down.

14-He can crochet hats.

15-He can beat anybody at poker.

16-He taught himself how to play the guitar and he's really good!

17-He chopped down a tree in our yard with just an axe.

18-He can tie flies for fishing.

19-He's had 4 different bedrooms in our house.

We're so proud of the man you've become Andrew.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
