Happy Birthday Gunner!

It's already September 18th in Afghanistan.....

When Gunner was born, he was a little guy, tipping the scales at just over 3 pounds.  He was 6 weeks early I think.  In this picture I believe he was a few months old.  When he was first born, his dad was able to hold him in the palm of his hand.


Gunner with his 3 brothers.  He's the cutie on the far left.


A shot of when Gunner was home on R&R, just in time to meet his son.  (His son, who outweighed him by 7 pounds at birth, yikes!)


He's no longer that little kid.

He's a wonderful father, husband, and Soldier...and no longer the little guy.


Happy 40th Birthday Sweetie!  We love you and miss you!

P.S.  Thanks for all the great suggestions, but as luck would have it, he got this....or he will when he gets home.  It was a moment of weakness on my part....

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a nice hot meal, and a nice shower, after sleeping in. At least you can dream of your yellow cruiser. Have a good day!
