happy birthday, alex!

9 years ago, I got the best birthday present of my entire life: a son.

It took us 4 kids to finally get a boy (but I wouldn’t trade a single one of my girls for anything!). He came at a time of struggle and change in our lives, and his timing could not have been more perfect! He is a blessing in every way.

Today, Alex is 9.

We had our first real boy birthday party (meaning there were guests other than family members!) this weekend, and I think it’s safe to say it was a success. I can’t believe how much this kid grows every day. He teaches me more about life than I teach him.

The best part? Since he was born on my birthday, I stopped having birthdays 9 years ago. That’s right – it’s all about him now, and I can be forever stuck in my 20’s. Ahhh… life is good.

Happy Birthday, Bud. We love you so much!

Here’s to boys. And turning 9. And the friends who celebrate it with you. Cheers!
