Another Wonderful Year

This will be his last year in the single digits.  Today Cody, my first born son, turns nine.  As my long time readers know, Cody was born premature – a 26 weeker.  He weighed 2 pounds 1.5 ounces.  I consider it an honor to be his mom and I cannot tell you how much he means to me, how much he has changed my life, has shaped me and bettered me as a person.

I wrote this on his birthday the first year I started blogging.  I reread it a couple times a year – his birthday being one of those times.  I have reblogged it each year and will continue to do so.

It tells a story of one day.

It is a small story but a very large part of how I am where I am and how I have become me.

I hope you take the time to read it – even if you may have read it once (or twice) before.

Happy Birthday my sweet, compassionate, wonderful miracle of a boy.

      It was a grand day. His birthday was celebrated over the course of three days with a requested pancake dinner on his actual birthday on Thursday, Friday Husband delivered cookies to his class, and Saturday was his birthday party. 🙂

  2. What a journey it has been for all of you ! Hope Cody has a marvellous b’day 🙂
