12 years ago today....

Twelve years ago today my first son was born....my first thought was I can't believe I only pushed 3 times!!!???....and my second thought was, his hair is growing in a perfect circle in the middle of his forehead!!....what a lovely colic he has to this day!.......he was 10lbs and perfect in every way!!.....my daughter was just 15 months old and I remember her stepping over to my hospital bed and leaning in and kissing him.....it was just precious...I brought an adorable little snow suit to bring him home in and I couldn't even zipper it the whole way ...he was busting out of it!....what a good baby he was.....at times I even forgot I had him......I'd come around the corner and be startled to see him in his bassinet!......what a wonderful little guy he was growing into.......I'd often comment though..."what a perfect middle child he would be"......not knowing if I'd have anymore children or not.........years went by and my third surprised us....and he did become the perfect middle one!....he loves being a big brother and took to it immediately....when Cubby was a newborn T. would ask to put his bouncy seat in his room while I took my shower....he'd build trains around it and read him books!.....to this day he loves babies and puppies!......how blessed I am to have such a wonderful, fun loving and healthy son.....how fast the years fly by.......as I often say, "I just want to freeze them!"

I hear you girl! (about the freezing part!) I can't believe N will be 10 this year. I just pray my kids stay happy and healthy. (Parents too!) Have a good day--

I'm so glad for you that you have such glowing things to say about him. He knows you love him...although he will never truly know the extent until he has kids!
