Well, today my firstborn miracle baby turns 4! Wow! I absolutely can not believe how the time flies by. It's so true what your parents tell you- they grow up in a flash right before your eyes. I am so thankful that Aden is growing up to be such a big healthy boy, but I must admit to being sad that those precious moments that will only be around in childhood are quickly passing me by. I know he won't always love his Mommy the most, want to only have me tuck him in and say his prayers, give me "tickle kisses" on his eyes, hold my hands across busy streets and crawl up in my lap just because it's a safe, warm, and snugly spot to be. I know that I won't always be the one he wants when he's sick, or hurt, or sad and that one day he won't need me when he wants the milk off the top shelf of the refrigerator. But, with roots we also give wings right? I hope he will Fly as far and fast as he can in the direction God chooses for him, but I do pray with all my heart that he remembers how hard it is for his Mommy to watch him step out of the nest.He is such a source of joy for me and for his Daddy and he has given new meaning to love in our house. It's hard to believe almost 5 years ago we were sitting there in that doctors office listening to a Dr. tell us that we should "pursue other paths if we wanted children" because there was a 0% chance we would ever have them! Ha! Little did he know God had already started work on Aden in my tummy at that very moment! I remember the peace I felt that day after leaving the doctor- holding Brent in the parking lot and reassuring him it would all work out, when I had been so anxious the days and nights before our apt. not knowing how in the world I would handle hearing that we couldn't have children- the thing I'd wanted most for as long as I can remember!Then I remember the moment the doctor laid Aden on my chest for the very first time! I won't even try to describe that moment- other than to say it is absolutely the most breathtaking, beautiful, and powerful moment I've ever had on this Earth. How in the world people go through pregnancy and childbirth and still deny God's presence is beyond me.Well, happy birthday my precious, precious boy- I have a few verses I thought of today for you.Be Blessed and May God give us many more years to celebrate together!

For the life of every living thing is in His hand, and the breath of every human being.Job 12:10
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him Psalm 37:7
Sons are a heritage from the Lord. Children are a blessing from Him. Psalm 127:3

Aden Bug,
I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be!
Love, Mom
