The big 0-6!


It's hard to believe that 6 years ago today, this little guy was born...a 4 pound, 5 ounce preemie. I can remember so vividly that dd (3 years old at the time) decided, upon leaving my sister's house that night 6 years ago, that she needed to take my sister's box of marshmallow pumpkin peeps home with her because as she said, "just in case my baby comes tonight." I remember looking at my sister & saying "I hope she doesn't know something we don't." Sure enough, 3 hours later, my water broke, some 5 1/2 weeks early. Amazing, isn't it? 6 years since this one entered our lives and I can't imagine life without him. Happy Birthday sweet boy!

Oh Wow! Children, so innocent, can really have a sense, an intuition, of when angels will enter our lives. I've always felt that. Your story is just proof.
Big Happy Birthday to the new SIX year old! hehe
