September 23, 2003: The Day My Life Changed Forever

The day was September 22nd, 2003. I was selfish. A workaholic. 9 months pregnant. And didn’t know just how my life would change the next day, at 5:40am on a Tuesday, September 23rd.

When I heard the first cry, it literally took my breath away. I was instantly hooked. I hovered over his crib in the hospital. I watched him breathe. I watched his little round face for hours. It was a love only a mother could comprehend.

So to my first born child, my son, who turns 8 today, I have prepared some pictures for you to enjoy tonight at your party with your family. Watching you grow over the past 8 years, has literally, just as the moment you came into the world, taken my breath away.

Sucking your thumb, even in the womb

Born with spiky brown hair- we haven't seen it since
A little chicken 😉
A happy toothless wonder

Having a treat- like mother like son, we LOVE Mc Donalds
Oh yeah! I'm cool!

Too cool for school

Thank you sweetheart for making me the happiest mommy ever. Your sensitivity and kindness blow me away, everyday.

Just for you, our most FAVORITE version of happy birthday. Happy birthday to you my sweet boy.
