Twelve years ago today...

My long 25 hour labor finally came to a happy end...

Nicholas entered this world at 6:44 a.m.

I guess he was just as frustrated with how long it took to get here, because the first thing he did was bite the doctor's finger!

He was born on his due date...

A healthy boy with healthy lungs!...
A sweet little brown-eyed baby...

I will always remember the sunlight streaming through the hospital's window just enough to illuminate the peach fuzz on his head. That is the first time I noticed he had red hair.

Nicholas has transformed from the little "copper top that never stops" (I've never seen a toddler with more energy) into such a considerate and thoughtful boy. He's got to be one of the sweetest boys I've ever known...He consistently thinks of other's and their feelings.

I'm really enjoying this age he is now. We could chat and laugh all the live long day. He's one of a kind...and those that know him well can attest to that. I simply love this kid with all my heart and hope he has a happy, memorable, and FUN birthday.

8 mos of my very favorites! So funny.

He is one of the kindest boys ever. And his manners are impeccable which is awesome. I love that he plays with my kids so incredibly well, even Sienna, when he is so much older than them. He never seems bored when we're together which is something for a boy his age. I hope he has a wonderful birthday.

And pat yourself on the are doing an amazing job as a mother!
