My baby boy's birthday is on Thursday. He will be turning 5 years old. His party is tomorrow afternoon and we are so very excited. He has been counting down the days all month. He ordered an AWESOME Avengers cake and we are going bowling with his friends. We can't wait.
What I have difficulty with, is the memory of what nearly occurred five years ago. Were it not for my responding to a feeling that something wasn't quite right, and an EXCELLENT OB and his colleagues, who were able to realize something was dreadfully wrong with my baby, he would not be here today. But, because everything fell into place, and because God was watching out for this special little boy, I have my little Landon with me now. I cannot believe how far he's come in 5 years, from that helpless, 4lb 6oz little baby boy to a happy, beautiful, amazing little man. We went to the thrift stores today to start school shopping (his school has a strict dress code so I figured I'd better start now) and I bought him size 6 pants and 7 polo shirts!!! Where did my baby go!?
Anyhow, happy almost birthday Landon. You amaze me every single day and I'm blessed to have you. I know others have not been so lucky. I do not know why God chose me to have a miracle baby, but I am beyond thankful he did, and I know one day you will do great things.
