Special Day

Good Morning! In a little more than an hour at 7:53am to be exact 12 years ago at that moment I would have been delivering this precious little boy

Allan James 6lb 13oz. 21.5 inches

He had a little bit of a rough go of it, his lungs were underdeveloped and he had to be life flighted to Pittsburgh where they could care for him better. He stayed in the NICU for a few weeks and on May 2, 1997 he came home. He was the absolutely most loving baby, and a good baby too. Not too much has changed in the past twelve years. He is still the most caring and loving child, and so far pretty good. Of course he still has been having a rough go of it. Because of his premature lungs he suffers from asthma and this year has been especially hard on him.

So here is my boy now (well on Easter) almost a teenager! Time flies, it seems like just yesterday I was bringing him home from the hospital. He has gone from a blue dinosaur, Winnie the pooh, batman loving toddler to a Crazy video game playing, bike riding, soccer playing, brother harassing pre teen. I Love who he is! He makes me proud! And no matter what he will always be my baby!

Happy Birthday AJ!!!!
