Double Digits. I can hardly believe it. Ten years ago when I first held that little baby boy I remember being overcome with a feeling of love I had never felt before. I think I stayed up most of the night just looking at him--in fact I thinking I spent the first 6 months up all night just looking at him. I wonder how I would have felt then if I could look back on it today--after 10 years with him?

A few of thoughts as we reach the first Decade mark of Andrew's life.

1) I sometimes really wish he was still that little cuddly baby boy I once had.
2) I never dreamed that he would only be 6 inches shorter than me and wear the same size shoes.
3) 10 is a lot more mature than I ever thought it would be. ( He can be really fun to have a conversation with.)
4) sometimes 10 is a lot younger than I thought it would be! ( He sometimes let's me tuck him into bed-- and when he's sick or sad--he still needs me--kind-of)
5) Wow-- How did this happen?

Happy Birthday double digits! We love you and are so grateful you chose to be our firstborn! We couldn't be more blessed.
