Like Father, Like Son!

Have you ever told a son or daughter that you hope they have a child just like them?  I don't know that I have actually said it out loud but the thought may have crossed my mind! Dave and Corban share a birthday month - almost shared the same birthday and they share the same creative, energetic, genes. 
Remember Corban, the self-proclaimed barber?  He turned 5 a few days ago. 
Here, he's wrestling with a cousin. 


It's hard to capture his boundless energy in pictures because most of the pictures of him are blurry!



Happy 5th Birthday, handsome Corban! 

We love you and are glad your hair is growing back!

This is Corban's Dad, David.  He too had lots of energy.  We put him in wrestling when he was 7 years old.  It helped!  Even though these pictures make him look like he's the under-dog, he went on to be a great wrestler in high school.


Dave's the one in the middle, notice his leg muscles!  Those legs were ALWAYS moving!

Here's this handsome boy looking very mild and innocent! (Looks CAN be deceiving!)



David turned 30!  We had a surprise party for him at PF Chang's.  He was flanked by his wife and mother-in-law - that's one way to keep him in line!  Dave has a great sense of humor and has us laughing most of the time! (HE can make me have a good belly laugh)

Happy Birthday, Davey Boy!  We love you!

I think Dave would have preferred the surprise to be at Golden Corral! I still love the pic of him dressed is a suit with the fingers spread across the scriptures. He's so spirchal!

He sounds like a wonderful son - Happy Birthday to your Davey Boy! (I love those nicknames even when our kids get older!!)

Love the pictures of him as a little boy - wrestling is an excellent choice for a boy with a ton of energy!!

I love seeing my nephews that are just like their dads. It's so cute! Plus, my brothers totally deserve to re-live that personality on the other side:)

I don't think I've ever said those words out loud, but I know I have thought them.

Happy Birthday to your Colton and your Davey Boy.

Sometimes I think the only way each of us can truly appreciate and understand the challenges we presented to our folks when we were kids, is if we have kids of our own.

I've spoken to each of my grown children more times than I can count about when they have children of their own......

gigi said...
