Happy Birthday, Johnny Mac Pippin

You are one awesome kid. Really. I’m not just saying that because I’m your grandmother. OK Maybe I am but it’s totally true. Other people who are not your grandmother agree with me.

It’s hard to believe a whole year has gone by. Then again, it seems like an eternity since I last held you (and it’s only been a few months.)

What will you be doing a year from now? Running with Kacy dog? Carrying around the Cat? Building a sand castle rather than eating sand? All of those things and many, many more.

This is going to be one hell of a year, JMP — you’re going to put your mom and dad through their paces and I’m looking forward to hearing about every new thing you learn and watching you grow.
