Happy 10th birthday to my blond hair, green eyed boy… Joshua!

I can’t believe my baby is 10.

Wasn’t it just yesterday that he was still in my belly trying to make his entrance in this world while I was only 7 months pregnant? 

Could this premature baby who spent the first month of his life in the NICU and who for the first two years of his life, was in and out of the ER AND who had monthly, if not weekly, visits to the doctor really be turning 10!?!?!

It’s true, this gentle lion turns10 today. He can be so tender and loving but also rough and loud and wild and… Sigh….such a boy!

As I went through our collection of pictures that we’ve taken throughout the years, I couldn’t help but marvel at all that God has done for us as a family and especially for this boy of ours. We’ve been through a lot with him from the moment he was conceived.

From the many doctors visits to his unruly toddler years, that i thought would NEVER end, God has had His hand on this him.

I’m honored to be the mommy of this wild and tender son of mine!

Here are a few pics of the birthday boy…hope u enjoy!

We went to visit him on our  anniversary, about 2 weeks after he was born, and he gave me the best gift ever… His smile!
