"Birt-day Boy!"

June 26, 2005 (5 pounds 11 ounces) "Little peanut"

Holding you for the first time. (I totally look like I am thirteen.)

First birthday

Fall 2007

You love baseball.... fell asleep with your glove on watching a baseball movie...

Your black eye Christmas eve, had to take you to Urgent Care.

Laundry "helper"

You wanted to help the doctor deliver Kade...

Pyper's first day home. You were very curious...

The day our family became whole.

Soccer star

Oh my goodness, how time flies! Gaje. I wish I could go back...and just hold you. (Doesn't every mother?) I wish these photos could talk, oh the stories they would tell. You have been through so much in such a short time. You constantly amaze me with your wisdom. You soak up information and process it, then come up with deep insight. Wow. You have the greatest and sweetest personality. You are always trying to make others happy and smile. I remember several times last year when we were going through a tough time, you would always smile at me and give me a big hug and tell me, "it be okay mom." Lately in the mornings you get up super early, and come to me in my bed and ask, "can I lay down by you?" I nod and skootch over, then you rub my back as I sleep. Through out the day you will test my boundaries, as all little boys do to their mothers. You will call my name several times, and just when I think I have had enough you will say, "Mom?" I will ask, "What..." in a low grumbly voice. You reply with, "I just love you. That's all." My heart melts instantly. This happens at least 8 times a day. How did I get to be so lucky to have you, sweet boy? You have always seem to have played a protector role over Pyper and myself. I love it. I am so proud to be your mother. I love your innocence and tender heart. You truly care about others. I can't believe it has been four years since the first time I held you. Everyday I remind myself, with your help of course, how truly blessed I am to have you in my life. Even if I have to share you, our time together is irreplaceable. I love you little buddy. Hope you have a great "birt-day"!


  1. Happy Birthday Gaje! oh how they grow up so fast!
