Five years ago today, at 10:04 pm, our middle man was born.

Out of the three, he was our biggest, at 8 lbs. 5 oz.
His was also my longest labor
(15 hours...not horrible, but much longer than the other two)
I remember thinking that he was never coming out, but oh, when he did...
I was head-over-heels in love, completely awestruck that God would entrust us with this beautiful, special little guy.

And now, today, my feelings are exactly the same.
How very loved he is.

In usual tradition, we had birthday pancakes this morning.

He opened presents, singing, "...and I'm so happy, so very happy..." as he opened each one. Sweet boy.

Happy, happy birthday buddy....we love you so much.
