Happy Anniversary

To Claire, 
You've been up nearly all night with our beautiful baby boy while you let me sleep so I can function at work. Most would laugh and say how tough it is, but those that have done it will recall the joy. A few times last night I woke up enough to look across the room and see you with him. It was the epitome of the "joy" aspect of this adventure. On this, our 8th wedding anniversary, I am more in love with you than ever, and beyond that I'm in awe of your strength and attitude in the face of a fussy baby and sleepless nights. You are such an amazing wife. I love you, and thank you for being such a constant in my life for the past 13 years. Xoxox 
Love, Tyler

baby news

The doc just stopped in and told us to batten down the hatches for a late night delivery! So when you all get up tomorrow morning you can wish me and my _________ a happy birthday. We are going to wind things down here in the room for the night and wait for this little miracle to arrive. Thank you for the prayers!!

BIG update!

BIG UPDATE! Claire and I just checked in at the hospital. Baby Matney is imminent! Claire's water broke at 12:30 this afternoon. Say a prayer for all of us, and stay tuned to find out if it's a boy or girl. This is your last chance to place bets!
