9 years


Nine years ago today the most beautiful and handsome man came into my life. At first he was quiet only giving me coos and little smiles. But then he began to talk more, smile more and melt my heart even more. I had never known a love like this before, a mother's love.


Yes nine years ago JC came into our lives and it hasn't been the same ever since. My heart is full of so much love for this boy and I can't imagine my life without him. He is incredibly smart and wise beyond his years. His comedic timing and use of sarcasm are something to behold. The boy simply amazes me every day with some kind of off the wall fact. You can usually find him reading, drawing or building Legos and he will proudly show you his work.


My son is a thinker. Sometimes he is deep in thought and other times he has a huge rush of many, many great ideas. If you want to know how to solve our world's energy crisis, just ask. He has a plan, a plan for everything. If it's some trivial question about why the world turns or why the sky is blue, he'll know that too. He'll gladly tell you anything you want to know.


He loves school, plays football, loves puzzles and legos. He wakes up happy but gets crabby at night. Godzilla is his favorite, but he loves a good movie. He'll sneek cookie dough when you aren't looking and look cute while trying to hide it. He can make me you so angry you want to spit, but you can't help but want to hug him longer afterwards. He is embarrassed to sing in front of people, including me ,but he often forgets we can hear him in the shower.



The boy, my boy, makes me such a better person for having him in my life. It will always be my hope that he will be happy, full of love and see the beauty of life. Every day I say a prayer for him so that he will always know just how loved and special he is.


My JC, Mommy loves you so very much. I hope you have an amazing 9th year. May you continue to learn, laugh, be healthy and be full of love.
I love you infinity x infinity + a kiss

Oh, I love him! I think my fondest JC memory is when I told him I didn't know anything about Godzilla, so he drew and explained every single Godzilla character for me.

He sounds like such a great kid. But then he has a great Mom so that's kind of a no-brainer. :D

Happy Birthday to your sweet boy!

Hey - Kirsten at GirlsWorld has a 9-year-old. Can I play match-maker? The smart quotient would definitely create one power couple. Future presidents, anyone??? :)
