Eli is 5!

Five years ago today, our lives were changed forever. It was on that day that we were blessed with our first son, Elijah James Larson. People tell you all the time that having children will change your life. And while I believed it when I was told before Eli, I could never understand then how much that is true.

Eli is truly a joy in my life. It is amazing to me to see him grow everyday and it is hard for me to believe that he is already five years old. There is nothing in life like his morning hugs and kisses. I treasure the moments we spend before he goes to sleep each night.

I thank God everyday that I have the privilege of being Eli's dad. I also pray everyday for the strength to be the role model that I need to be for him.

Happy Birthday Eli - I love you!
