We just wanted to wish this crazy little boy a very Happy Birthday!!! There is not a day that goes by that you don't make us laugh. We waited a long time for you to join our family and you came in a very special way.

I will never forget the first time I met you at Phoenix Children's Hospital, it was LOVE at first sight and when it was time to say goodbye to you that day I just couldn't do it. I got in the car and cried and cried, it was as if I was leaving my baby behind and I knew right then just how special you are. I couldn't wait to get home to tell everyone about you. I told them about your amazing blue eyes and your cute little smile and what a lovable baby you were. A few days later daddy and I got to go pick you up from the hospital. We were so excited and nervous at the same time. Because you had a feeding tube we had to learn a lot of things from the nurses before we could bring you home. We got home really late and Carly was waiting up for you, she said she couldn't sleep. Early the next morning your brothers tiptoed into your room to see you for the first time, they were so excited to have a new little brother. You have been a great blessing to our family and we are so grateful that Heavenly Father allowed us to be a part of your life. We love you!!!

Happy Birthday Hyrum Nathaniel Slade!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Carly and Nate.
Wish we could freeze time a little, everyone is getting so grown up - except me of course.
