Happy Birthday Doug!

It's hard to believe Harry, but today is my oldest son's seventh birthday.  I can't believe he's old enough to actually be upset at the news that Roy Halladay has retired.  This is the first year Doug started to genuinely take an interest in baseball and the Phillies, and I'm looking forward to many, many years of father-son baseball games.

I'm so incredibly proud of everything he does and he constantly amazes me with his intelligence, his curiosity and his ability to just be an overall cool kid.

Although . . . I'm still coping with the fact that he made me root for the Braves (his tee ball team) throughout the summer.  That was tough on the old man.

Happy birthday Doug!

I was also a little Brave at one time. Go get 'em, Doug!

Happy belated birthday, Doug! My little guy just turned 6, so he's running a little behind you. Let's hope you get to see another Phillies playoff team before you're old enough to drive!
