The Boy Who Made Me a Mommy

This picture was taken when Joshua was exactly one day old. We had survived our first night together and I remember sitting there the next morning looking at each other, marveling at the new life that was beginning--for both of us. He was mine and I was his.

In January that little baby turned five! Once he was inside me; now he's half my height. He's still mine and I'm still his.


  1. You were 19 when you had Joshua, weren't you? I'm 19 now. That's weird.

  2. Very sweet. That is how I feel about my boy.

  3. So far it has seemed like 5 is a gigantic milestone. 5 is so big! Both my boys made huge leaps and bounds in maturity and ability the year between their 5th and 6th birthday.
