My firstborn is 23 today. I feel so old and yet I really don't feel much older than him! I can't believe that he is 23! He has been such a blessing. It seemed like we waited forever for him to come into our lives way back then but we were so anxious to have kids!
Matt has always been the quiet, thinker of my children. He stays more calm than anybody else in our house. He has a hard time making decisions because he beats all the options to death first. He has to REALLY think things through!
He has always had lots of friends and girls always seem to swoon over him. In High School, I remember Kami saying that she was so tired of hearing how HOT her brother was by all her friends! LOL (not so much in the picture below ha! ha!)
He has a fun personality and loves sports- especially basketball and more recently softball. There isn't a day goes by when there isn't a basketball game on at my house. He stays busy with school and part time work right now and trying to figure out what he wants out of life.
He made us very proud when he served his mission. That decision really helped our entire family out while he was gone. He loves kids and has a fun personality around them. He is also very close to his brother and sister. It's so fun knowing that they all turn to each other and try to help each other.
Matt is a man of few words-many times it drives me crazy because I want to know what is going on in his life and I ask lots of questions and he gives one word answers (if that). I hope he knows how much I love him and how much having him part of our family has blessed us.
Happy Birthday Bud!
