This picture was taken the day after you were born....Madison was so excited to hold you..look at you and love you. She still loves you and holds you. You are the brother she prayed for and loves. Madison thinks the world of you and protects you.
I remember how anxious she was to see and hold you. We told her we were pregnant with you in Disney World.....she couldn't believe it. And the moment we found out you were a boy she was right there....she will always be there for you.
This photo was taken before we left the hospital. You were so sweet and precious. I loved to watch you sleep. I loved the way you smelled. You were our precious angel from God. I was in labor with you from 6am until 3:52 pm. My water broke at 11am. I slept through the most part of it....I pushed only twice.....and your daddy cried. It was such a happy time for us.
Madison was right outside the door and heard you cry for the first time...she held you first.....and boy was she proud!
You were 8 pounds 9 ounces and 22 inches long.
This was your first Christmas....our Christmas Card actually. You were only 3 weeks old here and I was too scared to take you out yet. We did Christmas pj's and Santa hats..something simple. You were 4 weeks old at Christmas last year and so little. That was a Christmas we will never forget. Our new edition.
Here you are on dad's shoulder and your 8 weeks old. You were bright eyed this day. You have the prettiest eyes. And your dad's look. You are such a handsome little man. I remember holding you and looking at you thinking...I never want this moment to end. I enjoyed loving on you and staring at you.
Here you are 6 months old...we had been at Fazoli's for lunch and there was a little girl sitting at the table beside us. You flirted with her the entire 30 minutes we were there. You also had your first bread stick....and loved it.
You were always flirty with women.
Look at your smile.
This picture was when you were 7 months old...and of course you have a ball in your hands. You love balls of all sizes. And if daddy has anything to do with it you will play Basketball for Kentucky......this is papaw's favorite picture of you......Our little Wildcat........
This is your first haircut..you did really well.
You have had 2 haircuts since. You just sat in my lap like a little man and didnt say a word. You are 8 months old here.
This is the same day as your haircut...but this is an after shot...I just love the photo.
This is you at the Pumpkin Patch. You had a really good day. You picked out a pumpkin and we painted it.
It all began one year ago today. You came into my life and I have loved every minute of it. They said I would never carry another baby...they were wrong. I have loved you since the moment I knew I was pregnant. And I will love you forever.
