special birthday wishes…

Two years ago I posted 28 fun facts/ things that I love about my dear husband and since I am not sure that I can come up with a another list of 30, I will spare you.  However, I would like to show you why I fall more and more in love with this man with each passing day…

I don’t think I could have asked for a better husband or a better father for Jay.  I love watching him teach, tickle, kiss, hug, show off, and love our little boy each and every day and am so blessed that I get to witness it all happen.  Jamie I know that Jay will “be (more than) alright if he’s anything like” you…

one year ago today…

One year ago today I took one of these (the first of many for my unbelieving eyes)…

I loved that the one said "yes" it's like pregnancy tests for dummies :-)

and it said that we were going to have one of these…

first pics of sweet baby Jay

Over the next nine months I did this…

It really is hard to believe that I was this big at one point (these are the last pictures that we have of me before Jay was born).

please excuse the scowl, apparently I was uncomfortable- how quickly we forget!

Even if I don’t remember being that big I do remember how it amused me so to take pictures of my feet poking out from my belly…

see, it really is an amusing view :-)

114 days ago from today (and 251 days from May 21, 2009- if you are one to count) we became this…

first picture as a family of three

One year ago today I couldn’t imagine having this little guy in my life and now I can’t imagine my life without him…

so in love with this little fella

So what this all boils down to is that one year ago today Jamie and I were blessed…

the best gift!

Today, on Mother’s Day, I am reminded of just how very blessed I am.  I couldn’t ask for a better husband and Daddy to Jay or for anything more in a son.  Since the very first moment that he came into this world Jay has captured my heart and I continue to love him more and more each day.  I have had the most wonderful day with my two guys and Jay gave me the best Mother’s Day gift- his first real laugh!  I love the sound of babies laughing; however, when the laugh comes from your child it is the most amazing sound on Earth!!

By the way, we were lucking enough to have the video camera rolling when he laughed.  So you really are seeing his first laugh in this video!
