I've been thinking about the day you were born
since we are approaching your birthday in eleven days.
I started thinking about it on July 1st because it was the day
in 2007 when I had my first false alarm with you.
I thought I was going into labor and we
went to the hospital only to be sent home empty handed.
I was excited and nervous and wished you were coming home with
us not in my womb but in my arms.
I have noticed these past few weeks how much
you have grown this past year.
You are such a smart little boy and you never cease to amaze
me with your knowledge and how much going from
a 2 year old to a 3 year old distinguishes
the change from toddler hood.
I am beginning to miss that you don't need my help
as often and you can be asked to do a task
and you will willingly respond for me.
I am so looking forward to celebrating YOUR day.
You are so cute about your party and you
are so involved in the workings of it.
Having a little boy was one of the best things that our God
I thank my lucky stars that he gave me you.
