Happy Birthday Big J!

6 years ago today my life changed in ways I had never imagined.  I don't think anyone is truly ever prepared for becoming a mother.  In one instant...your life is changed forever. 
he didn't even cry when he was born.  He just stretched he had been longing for some space.

Daddy was soooo proud.

but I was in heaven.

Now those first two little teeth...are missing.

and then you got big.
and bigger.

and now you talk back...and have your own opinion...and can tie your own shoes...and have a keen since of direction (you get that from me by the way).
you are the best big brother...and you badly want a little brother named Eli because you can spell it easily.

Since I don't scrapbook...or keep baby books (gasp), I decided to follow my beautiful cousins lead and do a little interview with the man of the hour.

You had some major mile stones this year; you started kindergarten, you scored your first goal in soccer, you played basketball, you ditched the trains for legos and drawing, you fell in love with riding your bike,  and you made new friends. You started to recognize when your mommy needs help and like a little man come to my rescue.  You "fill me up" and I am the luckiest mom in the whole wide world!
