Happy Birthday Nicholas!


So another year has gone by, and today we are once again celebrating another birthday.

I can now say that I have no children left in the single digits, and that thought scares me.  Almost makes me want to have another......almost....but not quite LOL

Our boy turns 10 years old today.

Oh goodness, I'm not ready for this, he was my last little one, my baby, and now, here he is, a pretween.


This boy has been a force to reckon with from the day he was born.

After suffering two miscarriages, I found myself pregnant with him, and though it was a tough, high risk pregnancy, he was determined to hang in there, so much so that when he was born the doctor was perplexed because he would literally pop out and back in, as if he was tied to a bungee cord LOL

He came out with the cord wrapped around his little body, from his toes all the way up to his chest.  Hahahah

What a stinker!


Constantly making us laugh with his quirky sense of humor.

Smart as heck, he can sit and tell me all about the different kinds of energy and explain them in detail and how they work, from chemical to nuclear....he talks about space and planets, the make up of stars, the chemical composition, and he has long detailed talks with dad about physics, Newton's laws of gravity, and other things that leave my little brain completely fried.


Such a blessing this boy is in your lives.

We love him to death, and we feel privileged and blessed that God allowed us to be parents to this amazing young man.

I can't wait to watch him continue to grow, and learn and go through the ups and downs of life.

Happy Birthday Son, we love you!

Double digits... really? I think I started reading here when Nicholas was starting kindergarten. Bittersweet how fast they grow.

Wow. Beautiful pictures. Happy Birthday to your son. I can just see this day coming for my 3 yr old boy who sounds a lot like yours in personality (handful and smart as heck). The time is flying by!
