Nine years ago today, my wife gave birth to my baby boy! He was born in the middle of turkey season and I remembering asking the doctor sometime in the middle of the night if he thought we could get this thing done soon so that I could slip out and go turkey hunting. I wasn't serious, but that started a turkey hunting conversation and my wife had to listen to me teach our doctor the fine art of calling in turkeys between contractions. Reid was born at 5:55 am. I like to think that there was a turkey gobbling somewhere!
My boy has the ability to melt my heart in one minute and then make me want to pinch his little head off the next. He can be very loving and then turn around and produce blood curling screams from his aggravated little sister without skipping a beat. He is very smart and very competitive. He is my son, hunting buddy, fishing partner, ball player and one of the greatest joys of my life, so I make this post in honor of his birthday!
