Happy Birthday Sweet J-Man!



Today my littlest man turns one.

I can remember taking a pregnancy test five days after the twins' first birthday, thinking Nah. I'm just paranoid about being late. I've been late my entire life. This? Is the usual lateness. It took five rounds of hormones and insemination to have the twins. It's not possible for me to be pregnant after some old-fashioned sex.

Actually? Possible it was.

First, he was a surprise. Then? A miracle. And now?

He's the sweetest little boy in the world whose face lights up at the slightest excuse. He walked at 11 months and I think he might talk at 13 months because everything is fodder for "Da-da-da-da-da-da-da" in a little boy voice with a slight Southern twang. He's a miniature of his father with my eyes and he is just the busiest little man I've ever seen.

It's a privilege to be his mother and I can't think of a better way to spend Mothers' Day than to celebrate his entrance to the world one year ago.

Happy Birthday, J-man! I love you!

Happy Birthday J-Man!
He is so darned cute.
Happy Mother's Day, Heather.

My birthday sometimes falls on Mother's Day and when I was a kid I thought it was extra special for the two of us. Hope you two share the same unique bond.
