Tucker celebrated his six month birthday yesterday. With assistance, he likes to stand up and sit up these days. He is also holding his head up when laid on his back (strong abs!). Tucker continues to roll around and scoot on his back. He likes to hang upside sometimes too, like a little baby bat. Tucker loves to laugh at unexpected sights or funny noises. He loves to hold conversations, too. And he continues to be a great shopper.
Our blog started one year ago on Father’s Day. And I thought it would be fun to revisit some of the information about our Donor Dad. Even though Tucker looks a lot like me, you can see the resemblance to dad as well.
Our donor dad is 36 years old, 5'9" with blue eyes and blond hair. He is a smart cookie -- completing an Economics degree with a 3.9 GPA. He loves outdoor activities including rock climbing, hiking, mountain climbing, backpacking, surfing, and skateboarding. Our donor is creative as well -- he sings and plays acoustic guitar, and makes mosaics from magazine scraps. In terms of personality, our donor says he is "extremely animated and sincerely outgoing." The staff described him having "a very strong, outgoing and cheerful personality. He is very entertaining".
Our Donor Dad shares some of his philosophy for life: "Life is too short to do things you do not enjoy." "Live for the day and do what you love." "Family is important and forever." I’m very excited that we can contact the Donor Dad in a mere 17 ½ years!
Happy Father's Day from us!
