I can still remember it all like it was yesterday… The awful doctors appointments, the being told I wouldn’t carry my baby to term, all the doctors who had lists of things that were wrong with the child growing in my belly, and the moments I knew no matter what this life was worth fighting for. That no matter what he would be loved and fill a place in our hearts for all these years to come. I remember the morning of his due date so clearly. The Hubby wanted to stay home with us because he had a feeling our little bean was ready to make his big entrance to the world. And well after a great lunch with my family at Kevin’s Dog House. Enjoying some hot dogs, Brunswick stew, french fries, and a root-beer to drink… Seems our little Michael was all ready to make his entrance. Because not even an hour later Mommy and Daddy were headed off to the hospital. His little sister kissed the belly, and promised to be good for Nina and her Papa. She even told her Brother to be a good boy too for Mama & Dada. We headed to the hospital and began our journey to bring our son in to this world. I still can remember every moment of the day, every thought, every emotion, every fear, and every moment of pain. But I still wouldn’t change one moment of it all. God sure knew what he was doing by placing him in our family. This little man has proven the world and all those doctors wrong… Showing us all that our Lord has the final say.
Michael has always been a strong, spunky, carefree, joy, full of laughter, sharing hugs and kisses, little man who loves his big sister with all his heart, a Daddies boy who loves cars and Monday night wrestling with his Daddy, a little man who snuggles with his Mommy and shares those stories of his crazy dreams with, he is our light and our love. WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL OUR LORD GAVE OUR FAMILY THIS PRECIOUS GIFT. My heart is forever full with such a brave, loud, and loving child.
So with that said I wanted to share some images that express just the loving, wild, silly, and carefree soul Michael is.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR BIG BOY, OUR LITTLE MAN, OUR FOREVER!
I’m so proud of the young man you are becoming.
We love you!
