Hank is growing up so quickly and has really started to learn a few words. As a matter of fact, I find myself being extra careful what words I use around him. He is a bit of a parrot these days.

While we were outside the other day, we had a lesson in how to say "yee haw." Will Hank ever be a rodeo cowboy? Will he ever even ride or own a horse? Time will tell. But one thing is for certain, Hank will be prepared to vocally.

Being a dad has really taught me many things. Patience is probably my biggest area of growth. But it's all worth it. I can't even imagine what my life would be like without this beautiful boy.
