Happy Birthday, Jack!

Sunday, May 29, 2011

This is my little nugget 13 years ago.

My curly-headed dimple faced boy sported every super hero costume on the market.
As a matter of fact, they were the only 'clothes' he wore for many years.

I ran behind the fence Saturday night because this would be the last
 time I could capture Jack pitching as a 'child'.
{dramatic much, shannon??}

But it's kinda a big deal... I am now the mom to 2 teenagers. My baby has left his childhood.

 This little boy whose favorite place to be was snuggled in my lap, who, when he got too big for
 my lap would sit next to me on the couch and hold my hand as he watched his favorite TV shows,
whose face would light up and run and jump into my arms each and every day when I would
 walk up to pick him up after school...     

I have never been hit with a birthday so hard. I have been through my own 'milestone'
birthdays and the same milestones with my oldest. But, this one has left me shedding 
more than a few tears. This precious boy has been 'my guy' since he was born. He doesn't
know how this May 29th has affected me. It's probably for the best. He is enjoying today
at a Chicago Cubs baseball game with his dad. I am sure he is having the time of his life. 

  I am so proud of this gentle, loving, compassionate boy. Protecting him and preparing him
has been such an honor and such a huge part of who I am. I can't wait for the plans God 
has for him and so thankful that I was chosen for his mama.    

Happy 13th Birthday, Jack!
