How In the World Did {THIS} Happen?

It was 3 years ago last night that I went to bed looking like this....

When I woke up (as if I slept)... we went to the hospital where I gave birth to my sweet little man, Creighton.  3 years ago I had no idea what a blessing he would be to my life.  He is AMAZING in every way.  I am so blessed to be his Mommy.  He makes me laugh and cry every day.  He is learning and growing so fast that soon he won't need me anymore.  I just can't believe it's been 3 years since I first saw his beautiful face.

I woke up last night and looked over to see his angelic face.  I just stared and stared as if I've seen it forever.  It brings me happiness and peace.

Happy Birthday, Little Man.  You make me proud and you teach me more than I could ever teach you.  I love you more and more everyday and I wish time would slow down so I could hold you forever. Yup... today you are 3. My heart is breaking because time is just moving too fast.

I love watching you grow and play. I love your imagination and your love for Buzz and Woody! So cute!!
We've had a long year and counting down is what we do best (as any military family knows).  Your birthday is just another milestone that Daddy has to miss this year.  Notice the days we are counting down until he gets to see you again?
The good news is that we can make cupcakes again for his homecoming!!
I love you. I love you. I love you.  I love that your sister is your best friend and that at the end of the day you want to be just like her.  I love how she makes you laugh and you could have dance parties in her room everyday and think your life is perfect.  You are a great little brother!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Sweet Creighton. May you have 100 more amazing years of happiness and may all of your dreams come true!


  1. Happy, happy birthday! May you all be celebrating together soon!! Mom

  2. My sixth child is almost three. The wonder and amazementvare as fresh as it was with my first. Bless you and your family and thank you for your husbands sacrifice and service.

  3. Happy Birthday Creighton!! I hope he has a wonderful day and eats lots of those cupcakes! Looking forward to seeing some pictures of him with his new Buzz.

    I can believe how tiny you were the day before delivery!

  4. Happy Birthday Creighton! I hope you all have special day:)

  5. What a beautiful expression of love. There's one thing you don't need to worry about...he will always need his mommy, no matter how many years go by. Happy Birthday, Creighton!
