Happy 5th Birthday!!!!! to my Dear Son

on July 26, 2011

Five years ago I gave birth to my son, Christian, I still remember what I thought when I was told the baby I was carrying was a boy.  I couldn’t imagine raising a boy, let alone making sure he turned into a godly man or potty train him.  I still worry at times that I’m not doing enough but at least we did get potty training done – the rest I have a few more years to see how I’ve done as a mom of a boy.

Some say having boys are easier than girls and vice versa but truly I can’t say either way.  All my children have been different and my son is full energy and is all boy – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  If I thought it was hard then I don’t think I could continue nor would it be fair to him.  I’ve come to realize that boys need different things from their moms than girls do, and that’s okay.  Looking back I can’t believe I was ever afraid of raising a boy!  I love having a son and he is so precious to me, but it’s a big job to raise godly men in today’s society but I pray that the Lord can take any of my shortcomings and work them for the good He can do!

So since today is Christian’s 5th birthday, and for whatever reason I never did blog about his birth.  For the record he was my 2VBA1C and even though I ended up with an epidural due to terrible back labor it was a wonderful birth.   He was born on July 26th, 2006 at 8:29 p.m. weighing in at 8 pounds 13 ounces and 20 3/4 inches long!  I know how to grow them!  I nursed him exclusively for 7 months before introducing solids and he self weaned at 17 months.

So to my baby  boy, Happy 5th Birthday!!!!  You’re turning into a wonderful young man!

Picture of him in the hospital.

Little man with his big sisters!

 

He did not like feeding the lorikeets at the Zoo.

And now – branching out in the great unknown and enjoying Creation!

Riding a wolf.  I can’t believe how big he has gotten!
