my darling ben, on your special day,
i want you to know, and i wanted to say:
i hope you feel loved. hope you feel great.
i could not have picked, a better mate.
you make me feel loved, so special so good.
claire feels this too. if she talked, she would,
tell you she's lucky to have you as a dad.
you're loving, you're funny, you're pretty darn rad.
we love you so much. there's no one like you.
i wish everyone out there could be this blessed too.
so here's to you and your 27 years here.
too bad we're mormon, and can't have any beer.
but that's okay, because your love makes me high.
i'm pretty good at rhyming... okay, that's a lie.
we love this man and are so grateful for him in our lives. happy birthday baby.
she's already like her daddy.
