Today is my brothers birthday. Fourteen years ago, my water broke, and 27 hours later on February 23 I delivered my first son.
He was born at 8:13pm and he was 7lbs 13oz. He was 19 1/2 inches long and I learned what love truly was in that split second. He and I have a special relationship. It was him and I until M made his way into our lives. He was my trusty side kick, my navigator and my world.
He may look like a younger replica of his father, but he is so much like me. He is demanding and self centered, yet loving, empathetic and kind. He is competitive, brave and hard working. It’s good he has no idea this blog exists, it might swell his head 🙂
He is going to break hearts one day, he is so handsome! He’ll also have his heart broken more than once because he wears his heart on his sleeve.
I am so proud of who he is, and what I am sure he will one day become.
How I love this boy! Happy Birthday my dear son. I know you are crushed he isn’t here for your special day, but he is watching, missing and loving us.
