My daughter was six months old and there I was staring at two pink lines on a stick. I couldn't believe my eyes! This wasn't supposed to happen! My husband and I were amazed and I remember saying to my husband "God must really want this baby in the world!"
I got pregnant while nursing, without having anything close to a period since giving birth to my firstborn, AND we were using protection. I'll never forget the look on my doctor's face when I told him I was expecting. He asked me "How did THAT happen?" My son was a miracle baby and while I was not crazy at all about being pregnant again (I cried and not in a happy way either!) I was excited about my child.
On October 8th he came into my arms and latched around my heart in a special mother - son bond that is even stronger today - his third birthday.
He proved quickly to be a happy baby and very content that is until he got older!

Then he was ALWAYS HUNGRY! You would think that I was starving the poor boy the way he asked for food! But his hunger wasn't the only thing that grew. His heart grew too and he became the a sweet - tenderhearted little boy who is shy but loves everyone. Especially his sisters.
|Love his smiles!|
Then we got to the "fun" stuff, the stuff that will make me laugh for years to come! This little boy keeps me on my toes! Every time I turn around he is into SOMETHING! Whether its finger-painting the recliner with Lotrimin, painting the basement floor and his entire body with REAL paint, or running around the house outside with not a stitch of clothing, he always found SOME new way to get into trouble.
He is my Cody, my tender, sweetheart of a boy that can make a hurting or sad Mommy smile with just one hug or kiss. I love you sweetheart! Happy third Birthday!
In HIS Grip,
