Be still my heart!

My BABY turns three today!! My, oh my, how quickly the years are passing!

Three years ago today:

- Hubs and I dropped Ella off at Mother's Day Out.

- We checked into the hospital for a repeat C-section.

- After 3 attempts to get my epidural in, the poor nurse I was squeezing could feel her hand again!

- After 2 extensions of my previous incision, out came a BIG 'OL boy... 9lbs 7oz big!

I cannot explain to you the love I have for this boy. He makes me laugh. He melts my heart. And I've said over and over that I could just sop him up with a biscuit. He's just delicious to me!

I have tons of fantastic pictures of this kid...there was no way to pick just a few, so I made a slideshow with some of my favorites...I hope you'll look at all of them...enjoy!

Evan - I love you more than you'll ever know!! You bring me so much joy...thank you for being a light in my life! Happy birthday, sweet 'sunshine on legs'. Love, Mom

Lord, thank you for my precious, healthy son! Keep your hand on his life; guide him and protect Jesus' name, Amen.

I love the pics and your tribute. I too am shocked at how quickly the time passes. We will soon be celebrating Gracie's 2nd birthday. There is truly nothing that compares to being a mom!!!

Ain't it so that the boys can steal a Momma's heart.
