He's F-I-V-E!

Five years ago today, at this very moment, I was recovering from an insane natural childbirth experience. My sweet baby boy, Jake Allan was born at 8:56 a.m., on January 22, 2004, weighing 6 lbs. 6 oz. and he was 19 inches long. He was born at 37 weeks, 2 days, which totally threw me off.

My bag wasn't packed, my sitter for Will wasn't available because of timing issues and I just wasn't ready emotionally.

He's an amazing little boy and I'm blessed to be his mama. I've had loads of fun with him over the last 5 years and I look forward to many more years of fun with him. He's brought joy to my life that I didn't know existed. He's been counting down the days 'til his birthday for weeks now and he came running into our bedroom this morning with a huge grin on his face. He said, "Today is my BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!" Yes, my love, it is!

Happy birthday my sweet boy!
