Happy 6th Birthday to My Sweet Jayden

     OK, so I am a few days late writing this. Jayden's birthday was last week, today we had his party. I really can not believe that my little man is already 6 years old. I always knew I wanted to be a mom and just could not wait. John and I started trying right away after we were married. I was already in my 30's and he is older. I was so worried when I didn't get pregnant right away. I began to stress and then get disappointed when it didn't happen each month. Finally I decided to stop stressing and give my body some time. When I finally found out I was pregnant I was so excited!! I didn't tell John right away. I wanted to take another test just to be sure. But I did call the doctor to schedule an appointment. I was disappointed that they didn't want to see me until I was 8 weeks. I miscalculated and later found out I was further along and waited to go in until I was 9 weeks. When I first saw that little blob on the ultrasound screen I was so happy, I think I even cried a little. I was so in love with him even though we had never met.


     I was due on June 2nd. I really thought that I would have him early. I'm not sure why I though that, I didn't plan for early with my maternity leave. But I did think he was coming early, maybe I was just wishing since I could not wait to meet him. My due date came and I was still pregnant that morning. I was having contractions on and off, but nothing consistent. Then later that afternoon around 3:30 my water broke as I walked into the kitchen. I could not believe it was the day I would meet my sweet boy. He was a little stubborn and didn't come until 3:30 the next morning. But finally I was able to hold my sweet precious baby boy. He was as perfect as I imagined. I can remember it as if it was yesterday. Jayden has continued to grow and grow. 

      Every year at his birthday I think back and am just amazed at his growth. He is such a wonderful boy. Every time I look at him I realize how much I love him, more and more everyday. Jayden is very inquisitive and lovable. When we watch shows together he wants to sit right next to me on the couch. Even when we are on our tablets he likes to sit right next to me touching. I could not imagine my life without him in it. I am thankful everyday that I have him and never want to let him go. Today he had his party with friends and family. We had a great time and I will have to share some of the fun with all of you along with the cake and how we made it. 

 But for now I will just say Happy Birthday to my sweet and wonderful 6 year old.


  1. Happy Birthday Jayden! My son just turned 5 and I can't believe how fast it's gone by either. They grow up so fast!
