5 Years Ago…

8 Feb

…Our baby boy was born!  I can’t believe that my baby is 5 years old today.  Maybe it’s the pregnancy emotions but I have been emotional for well over a week now.  It seems like just yesterday Adam was headed off to Croatia while Jayden was just days old.  I waited patiently for the mailman to arrive everyday to see if he had that magic ticket.  Sure enough, 9 days later the mailman hand delivered Jayden’s passport and said, “Now go and be a family.”  The next day, Jayden, myself and Auntie Jilly were off to be reunited with Adam.  What a wonderful day that was.

I can’t even begin to describe how thankful I am that God has blessed us with such a sweet young boy.  He certainly can turn a frown upside down within a matter of seconds.  Adam and I continue to give thanks everyday for such a happy and healthy child!

I “borrowed” a little interview from my friend, Erin, that she asks her kids when it’s their birthday.  Disclosure: it was an hour past Jayden’s bedtime when I asked him the following questions, so he was getting a bit silly.
