Happy Birthday Big Boy!






60 months ago today I was lying in a hospital bed wondering what was about to happen. My blood pressure was too high, I was having a hard time breathing, and my doctor had said he was coming back on his lunch hour to do a c-section. Sullivan's due date wasn't until November 11, and we were nervous. Would he be ok? What was gonna happen? But then, alas, his teary eyed daddy dropped our brand new video camera, VERY teary eyed, and proclaimed "You make beautiful babies!" I didn't hear him cry, and begged to know what was wrong. And then, in all of his slpendor, I heard the first sound my boy would ever make. A wailing scream. I am sure he was saying, "I am not ready to be here!" But he was, and he was in a big way!






His tiny head was full of black hair, and boy was he cute! Well, he kind of looked like a monkey, and looking back now, I can tell he wasn't as cute as we thought at the time. But, he was perfect! A healthy little man. He was a loud boy, grunting constantly, but perfect.






Since that time, he has grown tremendously. He is such a big boy! Aaron and I look at each other all of the time and say, "Man, he is a boy!" He is ALL boy. Seriously, he is Indiana Jones. He likes to wrestle and play fight. He often forgets that the other person is supposed to WANT to play fight with you. But, he is a sweetie. He loves his family passionately. The more he grows, the more proud of him I am. I always thought I was a "baby" person, but the more he grows, the more fun I have. I love him more than words can describe, and I can't wait to finish watching him grow. Each day is a new chapter, and I am loving watching it! Happy 5th Birthday Sully-man. We are so proud of the boy you are becoming! Keep making us proud!
