oh my goodness, they say where does the time go, but when you are a parent you so feel that right down to your core. it flies and with every minute you just fall more and more in love with your babies. i cannot even begin to start to describe the intricacies of my baby cade. he is nine today and well, makes him not so much a baby, but to momma, he always will be. he had the most amazing year and the growth i see in him is awesome. God made him so awesome. he lost a good friend and classmate this year to cancer, one of the hardest things his little heart has endured, and i saw his heart wide open and he let our love pour in. he makes me laugh, laugh hard, he is super goofy in the best way, and i hope that never changes. his wish blowing out his birthday candles was for snow and two days later we got a blizzard! he is loving, kind, handsome, athletic, super smart…he is a package i must say. a beautiful package all wrapped up and delivered by the heavenly father….and thank goodness to all goodnesses that package was delivered to me. happy birthday my big boy.
