On Sunday, April 13, 2003, at 1:45 a.m., our Nicholas came into the world.  The only ones present during his birth were my husband Doug, our daughter Keira who was 4 1/2 at the time, my mom, Lori my midwife, and Michelle my nurse.  It was a peaceful birth, especially when compared to Keira's entry into the world.  But that's a story for another day.

Here are a couple shots of Nick - pre-digital/scanned in.  I think my husband took this one???  Minutes after his arrival.  Being held by my mom, the proud grandma.
Nick baby

And I believe I took this one (also pre-digital/scanned in).  It was also long before I knew how to use my camera or much about photography.  Or at least I had forgotten everything I had known.  :) Keira, Nick baby
Wasn't Keira the cutest?!  :)

Throwback Thursday Stories

So on Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 1:45 a.m. this wonderful boy got just a little closer to manhood.  He is now 11.  


E L E V E N!!!  

How can that be?!  I'm convinced that time goes by faster once you have kids.

I talked him into letting me snap a few photos of him on his birthday.  We didn't have much time so we just did them in the back yard where the grass was still brownish and no leaves were on the trees yet.  Hey, I'll take what I can get when it comes to him.  At least he wasn't yelling "paparazzi" and running away!  :)

The following is what ensued ... trying to get at least once decent shot of the elusive Nick.

His personality shines through in his photos.  A little bit goofball.  Pre-teen attitude.  Jokester.  Lots of fun to be around.

I'm so proud of him and the young man he is becoming.

Praying for many more happy birthdays.

Sniff sniff, Mama! He is a good looking young man! It's so true that time flies when you have kids. Such a bittersweet thing to watch them grow up. Sometimes I really miss my babies!
