Birthday boy!

2 years ago today, my life changed forever. I was entering the unknown. I had given birth to this new little person, a person God gave specifically to me, and I was terrified. I had no idea what to do, how to take care of him...I didn't even know him yet. But, here he was. Here for us to love and raise.

He might have been considered an "accident." Although, I don't believe in accidents. He definitely wasn't planned, that's for sure. He was loved all the same. It took some adjustment, but we ironed out the kinks. We're still ironing out the kinks.

This parenting thing sure is a challenge, but its one of the greatest jobs on earth. I am enjoying it more than I could ever imagine. I didn't think I'd ever have kids. I sure am glad I did.

*Jude when he was just hours old*

The day of Jude's party...we had a little bubble action.

Some cake...mmm, spiderman cake!

A few gifts...
Playing with the gifts! His favorite gift...his spiderman bike!
Happy birthday, my son, my first born. You are truly one of a kind. Your personality is so darn cute and I have loved watching you become your own person. I thank God that He gave you to us and I look forward to watching you grow into the man He wants you to be. Thanks for being you, for making us laugh and showing us how to love like God loves. You are loved more than you know.
