59: Garrett, From the day we brought you home from the hospital you have been the most important thing in our lives. Mom always says she barely remembers the early months because they went by so fast. This book will help us all remember those precious days. You started out a huge Daddy's boy for months 0-6, but now you are a total Momma's boy. You love giving high-fives, hugs and kisses. You will play catch with any ball you can get your hands on and eat just about anything that mom or dad are eating. We thank God everyday for blessing us with the perfect little boy you are and we will always love you with all our hearts. Love, Mom & Dad
