Since my nephew, Alex, and my brother, Philip, have back to back birthdays, they get to share a post. How exciting!
When Philip was just a mere sprout, he asked God for a baby brother, a baby sister, or a baby baby. God answered his prayer with me! Isn't God great?
The best thing about Philip? No matter how old I get, he'll always be older. HA!
He's great at Monopoly. I have never, no not ever, beaten him.
He's a good father. He is completely devoted to his family. I never would have imagined him as a family man, but he just fits the mold. I was looking for a picture of him by himself for this post, and every photo I have of him he's surrounded by his kids, wife, nephews, family, or dog.
Unfortunately, his face looks like a butt. Which is additionally unfortunate, because I look quite a bit like him.
And happy birthday, Alex for tomorrow! Alex is a little sweetie. He's my nephew, three years old tomorrow, born to Adrian and Patti and loved by all. He's a little miracle. There were times, especially when he was a newborn, that we were very concerned about his health. I'm sure if everybody I know had not been praying for him, he would not be the sweet, bright and great kid he is today.
Happy birthday to you both, and I love you and will see you soon!!!
