7: DADDY'S WISHES FOR ME | Tripp, you will be a leader and with that role comes great responsibility. As others look to you for guidance, I set forth the following wishes: I wish that you have the strength of compassion for others. I wish you patience. Good things are worth the wait. I wish for you to pursue your dreams with a vengeance. I will always be there to support you. I wish that you will be happy with your life decisions. Be true to your heart. My greatest wish is that you have the knowledge that you will always have my love and admiration with wherever life takes you. Enjoy the journey! Love, Dad
8: YOUR BIRTH STORY | CHOOSING YOUR NAME | Choosing your name was easy. Daddy was named Thomas Jr. after his dad, Thomas Sr. We wanted to keep the family name, so we named you after your daddy and papa. That's how you became Thomas III. Then we had to decide on a nickname. Since you were a third generation Thomas, we decided to call you Tripp, as in "triple." _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ | MEASUREMENTS | BIRTH DATE: 02/11/2011 | BIRTH TIME: 4:53 pm | WEIGHT: 6 lbs 13 oz | INCHES: 21.5 inches
