Happy Birthday Beardo!

It's August so time for a new banner and Beardo's Birthday!
Since his Birthday falls on a Paint Party Friday 
this year I decided  to acknowledge him here!
 While on holidays the kids decided to paint the family room
last minute. Only because I can't decided on a colour
for my bedroom after six years of thinking about it!
Beardo many moons before  a beard!
The family room is my painting palace, 
 coffee table, bins, and rolling cart
jammed with art supplies. So I only have
access to digital art this week while everything
is pushed to the center of the room and out 
of my reach!
Beardo at 10
Thirty years ago wondered how a mother 
with six kids handled a teething baby,
as I rocked my whimpering three
 month old in the darkest of night!
 That pivotal moment stuck in my mind.
Meanwhile the little dude below, a  nine month old 
at the time, seventh child slept in his crib not
 twenty minutes away!
Always a sweetheart
Back then I couldn't have imagined  loving any 
child as much as I loved my own! I  never
 imagined my stomach dropping or lump in 
my throat as  I felt the aches and pains 
for another child the way I do for my own!
 Some how this sweet face has changed my life, 
my love and my perspective
forever!
No one ever tells you how much you will
Fall in love with your child’s partner!
How over time they may become another
of your children, a part of your heart!
How each of their hurts become yours too!
How much their happiness means to you!
How dear their dreams are to your heart!
How you own each of their sorrows
Right along with them!
 Today as I celebrate another Birthday with
this precious soul who I feel so fortunate to love!
I can honestly say I have never known a nicer
person. Beardo you are a true example
 of kindness and love  in every way!  Over
  time I have watched you develop confidence
and a rich character full of peace and love!

Not only are you hilarious and fun, the unique spin 
you bring to my life keeps me smiling daily!
We are all blessed who know you! You are joy
and a blessing every single day! 
Thanks for being a guy who will pick berries on a whim!
Beardo with his twin nephews that adore him!
Make banana bread when your wife is too tired!
 Thank you for putting " Family First" even though you 
don't have a tattoo that says so!
Thank you for all that you do for our family daily 
without resentment! For being the knowledge nerd,
  fixer dude, music man, laughter king, gratitude master, 
forgiveness Joe, server Sam, witty Walley,
 Amazing human being that you are!  You never
 cease to amaze me in all that you do, 
and all that you are!! There are no words
to express how grateful I am for you in our life!
Happy Birthday Bryan! 
I truly love you with all my heart dear man!

This is such a touching blogpost for Beardo. Happy Birthday Year to you, Beardo!
Your new header is stunning, I expect you had fun designing swimming costumes. No contact from costume manufacturers yet? - especially that very cool man's one. And you have cornered the market in creating different mouths and eyes.

I love the new banner and artwork too - so many wonderful characters.
