Fifteen there still time for you

Fifteen years ago I awoke to a small gush of water that was the prelude to the birth of a 9 pound 8 ounce amazing baby boy about 12 hours later.

He was always ahead of the curve physically. In fact he just had his wisdom teeth removed a couple of weeks ago.

Believe me, he's wise enough for those teeth to be coming in. He is wise beyond his years.

Fifteen years ago I held this little (okay not so little because when you have a 9 pound baby it's like giving birth to a three month old...really it is) bundle in my arms.Fifteen years ago my husband gave him a name and a blessing. He was an angel.


He still is an angel. Just a bit bigger.

Happy Birthday Jona!

I started reading this in my RSS reader and thought, "Wow, this author has a son that's 15 today just like Jona! I wonder who it is? Duh."

Good thing you didn't give birth to him today; he's a bit bigger than 9 pounds...
