Happy Birthday, Jason.




Has it really been thirty-three years since I gave birth to a 
nine pound baby boy who was ten days past his due date?
We've always figured that's why he's still always late.

I remember it well.
We'd gone to the hospital once before and been sent home - false labor.
The day before his dad may or may not have taken me for a drive on bouncy roads.
The night before I scrubbed the kitchen floor.
We really wanted this baby born.


It was July folks and it was hot.
No air conditioning.
No maternity shorts that I can remember.


I wish I had baby pictures that I could post.
No digital cameras then and no scanner today.
You'll have to settle for a few adult pictures.

 He's wearing a pink shirt and pink necklace for Cate's pinkalicious birthday party last year.



When he visited a few weeks ago, he asked me to fix him
no bake cookies. This was taken after midnight.



For years I carried him around ~ now he's returning the favor!


Happy birthday to my first born.




I hope he gets his birthday card on time. 
I should be addressing that instead of blogging.

I too, gave birth to a 10 day late little boy, who weighed in at 9 pounds, 10 ounces. He is only 12 now. What a lovely post about our your son!
