I feel like a broken record at times, but how did this happen?!?! I vividly remember the day that we found out we were going to welcome a son into the world, and now that precious baby is 6! The day he was born, (on 1-11 at 4:00pm on the dot...doesn't that sound like Elijah? Everything in proper order :P) he came out without a sound, he just looked around, as if taking in the entire world.
As the doctor placed him on my chest, I remember being in disbelief that I had a son. Until he peed on me. in my mouth, to be exact. Then I believed it. Girls can't aim that well...not at all, actually.
As I type this, my biggest little boy is sitting in school eating the cupcakes I took him and his classmates to enjoy. He's so grown up. He's the sweetest little man in the whole world and I love him more than life itself. When I ask him "Elijah, you're mommy's what?" He answers "Your dream come true." He's right. He is. I always, always wanted a little boy. He really is my dream come true.
I love you so much, Elijah Scott! Happy Birthday, son!
