Dear Jesse,

On this your birthday, I thought it would be fitting to share some photos with you.

I know, I know.

You are probably shouting Woot! Woot! while doing a jump up and down right now, just at the thought of it.

We all know how much you love the experience of  having your photo taken.


Your expressions always say, “this is so much F.U.N!”


“But really, how can I get her to stop taking SO many? I mean everytime we turn around she is wanting a photo, for cryin’ out loud!”


“I know!  I’ll give Mike a wet-willy.”


“Or maybe if I make faces, so my mother-in-law love will put the camera down!”

Sorry Jesse, not going to work. I will always have a camera in my hand.

It’s really not all that bad is it?  There are, afterall, some great photos of you…

But this is my favorite to date…


Thank you for being such a wonderful part of  our family.

Thank you for letting me capture our family’s memories.

Thank you for loving our daughter so well.

Thank you for infusing our lives with laughter.

Thank you for embracing, with so much joy, the adventure you are about to begin as a father.

Know that you are deeply loved and admired.

May this year be beyond your wildest dreams.

Happy Birthday, Jesse Jacobs!
