~~BIRTHDAY WISHES~~

Happy 14th Birthday to Jordan today! My how he has grown. Today, I was thinking back 14 years ago....when I went in to the hospital, in the wee hours in the morning....scared to death (of the unexpected) to be induced. I already knew he was a boy, from a very vivid, life-like dream I had. I even seen them weighing him in my dream and seen them hold him upside down. It was so weird and I was dead-on about his weight and that he was a BOY. Kind of scary....
Jordan has grown by "leaps and bounds" this summer and is taller then I ever thought he would be. He is a "typical" teenager...but he still surprises me all the time. It is the little things he will do or little smirks I get from him. He is a good person...he loves to razz his sisters, but he does have a very soft heart and can easily be hurt...

I made Jordan a birthday card and wrote some sentimental things inside (just a bit) and this was him reading it out loud. It said something to the effect that he has grown into a young man, in front of our very eyes....He said Mom, I want you to keep this card for me, for when I grow up. Ahhhh, isn't that so sweet. I said put it in your keepsake box---- he said it is full.

You can tell here, that Jordan is still very much a "kid at heart". He had to put lit candles, in his ice cream cake, WHILE EATING IT! He is so silly. Yesterday I made cake for both Jordan and Courtney, they were so yummy. On each of their birthday's we do buy something special for us to have, here at home for their birthdays....and then another day of celebrating! We can't let their special days go by without it. We also save the presents from us, so they have it on their birthdays.

We had a great day at the park yesterday and today, Dad and Jordan are fishing. One of Jordan's most favorite past times. It is a beautful day here, a bit windy.....but still beautiful. Happy Birthday to you, Jordan. I hope all of your BIRTHDAY WISHES COME TRUE! Love you, Mom.

Tonya,
Happy birthday Jordon. He has grown and is a very handsome young man. He so has your eyes T~. I can see why you are proud. He is a good kid. Every family needs a joker.
I hope Jordon keep that sweet kid side of him, It will help keep him enjoying life when it is all work and no fun. The best birthday gift after that is skunking your dad fishing! Or catching the bigger fish. LOL
I miss fishing:(
Have a wonderful day. You done good so far my friend.
Hugs,Pea

They do grow up so fast don't they....

My son at 23 surprised me on Friday by taking me to a concert (Lyle Lovett and his large band) it was at a winery ~we bought 2 bottles of wine and sang and danced all night! What a surprise....

I can see your son doing something similar... he looks like a fine young man...

Of course I'll enter you in the giveaway for my Lu dolls... Thanks for commenting~
