Happy 8th Jamen







Yesterday was my baby's 8th birthday. Jamen laughs when I call him baby, but he will always be my baby. He began his life by letting us know how it would be with him...labor for 20 plus hours, then his heart all but stops and then he is delivered by an emergency c-section at which time he is blue, the nurse said she knew he would make it because he smiled at her...that's my Jamen. Lots of work and scares, followed by miracles and more joy than you can possibly dream of. I adore this boy of mine and can't believe he is 8! It goes so fast, may I never forget it...
