Happy Birthday 'Boy'

This picture was taken 13 years ago today! Today my Boy is a teenager.

My girls are going to kill me when they see this picture online, because this particular shot was taken before their hair was done. This baby was born before dawn, and was my longest regular labor of just under 4 hours. --no meds just me and the doctor and a certified nurse midwife.... and Michael standing guard of course.



I made the "big sister day" shirts that they are wearing. We celebrated big sister day (and later big brother- big sister day) whenever we had a new baby. Each of the older kids received a gift. They looked forward to that...


That was then ....

I sure hope he had a great day (who wouldnt with that awsome cake!) your family pics are beautiful, I love how the girls have on the shirts. ( I think my dd would like a shirt with a little brown girl on it as she calls herself) Oh, and no drugs during labor-wow. Even though my last two came in with just 4 hours of labor I still had drugs, if I didnt those babies were not coming out! thank you for sharing some special family moments.
Blessings,
