13 years and 21 days ago...

Hello Everyone!

Yes, it has been a while. I feel like I start out every post this way. Oh well, I guess I'm just not a dedicated enough blogger. Enough of that and on to my current post.

13 years and 21 days ago, I gave birth to my first child. He was two weeks late and I had to be induced. Then when he was finally born, after a long labor, he was only 6lbs and 15oz. We spent 5 days in the hospital because of a few complications at birth. But now, he is a strapping 13year old and is taller than me. Those that know me are laughing at that. It doesn't take much to be taller than me as I'm only 5'3" but hey, he's only 13. Anyway, I meant to do this on his birthday but we were extremely busy at the time and it just slipped my mind. I am very proud of my boy. He has really grown in the last year and I don't mean just physically. We have our issues and areas we need to work on but he is starting to show some real signs of maturity.
Here's one that shows those long legs of his.
I took a few pics of him a few weeks before his birthday. It was like pulling teeth to get a real smile out of him. But, when we had his birthday party, I caught one of him that shows a true smile and I love it!
Wish it was a little clearer but it was taken at night with a flash and he was moving around a bit opening his presents.

So, sorry my boy for being a little late on your birthday post but I love ya just the same.
Looking forward to the teenage years, I think. ;)

So until next time...

Have a blessed day,

maggie jane
