Wow this is some journey you are on. I am so proud of you, your strength and will to live is greater then anything I've ever seen in my 31 years of living. You are truly living up to your name. You see, we named you Nash after your great grandfather. He was Colonel in the Army, and he didn’t take any slack from anyone, much like you. He was hard headed, and things had to be done his way and when he wanted them done. We named you after him because we wanted you to be a strong ,Godly man. I never knew how fast you would live up to that name. You are the strongest person I know. You amaze me daily with all you have to put up with. Someone is always poking or messing with you and you just lay there with such a calm look on your face. But sometimes the hard headed nature of your great grandfather comes out in you and you bite the RT’s finger and wont let go. I must say this was a very proud moment for me. You have shown me that anything can be done with enough fight and faith, mountains can be moved no matter how big. I can't wait to play catch with you and teach you all the things I know. We will play in the creeks and build forts and get really dirty like boys should. And we will do things that make your mom give me 'the look'. Trust me, you will find out about that look soon enough. I can't ever express how much joy you have brought into my life. I will never understand why things happen the way they do, but I will never complain. Because you were born 3 and half months early, I look at it as a blessing I have been given extra time with you to love and hold you. The future is so bright for you. I know you will change the world in your own little way. God has a mighty big plan for your life and I’m glad He chose me to help you fulfill it. So you take this time and rest, my little buddy. We have a lifetime of adventures awaiting us.
With All My Love,
