Dear Blake Beckett Arndt,
Welcome to the family sweet baby boy!
A few things you should know…
Your mama and I met at intro to college our first day at UW-Green Bay.
Our maiden names Becker & Beckett set us up for instant friendship.
(I was thrilled when your mama told me your middle name would be Beckett!)
Your mom and I were joined at the hip for the next four years of college.
(I really hope you get her friendship skills. Or party skills!?! Both would be bonus.)
Your mommy was my biggest cheerleader. She made it to every single one of my college home swim meets,
and she made me a good luck card for every away meet.
(I have no doubt she will be your biggest fan in all that you do,
but always remind her that she has great card making skills!
I still have mine to prove it if she starts slacking in that department)
Speaking of biggest fans, you will have to fight for her attention when the Packers are playing.
She legit LOVES herself some Clay Matthews. I’m actually surprised she didn’t name you Clay.
(Just show her a picture of Clay’s hair flipping skills if you get in trouble and you will be off the hook. Your welcome.)
Although your mom makes a mean rice crispy chicken dinner, your dad is the REAL cook in the family.
(I really hope you get his grilling skills.)
Now let’s chat about your brothers real quick.
They ADORE you!
Seeing them embrace your cute chubby bod during your newborn session brought tears to my eyes.
(Mason will teach you a thing or two about Science.
Merrick will snuggle you all day but then toughen you up for sports.)
You have completed your family so perfectly.
No matter what state you live in I promise to visit.
Maybe one of the Arndt boys will go to college with my girls, and your mom and I can relive our college years together.
Or we can just plan an arranged marriage!?!
Either way I can’t wait to watch you grow up with your brothers.
Love you SO much,
Robby (or as your brother’s call me, “Wobby!”)
