August 11, 1999

Holy clap! I can't believe it was twelve years ago today that my life changed in ways I could have never imagined.

I love both of my boys, so much more so than I could ever put into words. But my oldest holds a very special place in my heart. He didn't just change my life, he changed me. I didn't just become the girl who had a baby boy named Bailey...I became Bailey's Mom. While some people have problems giving up their identity, I didn't. From that moment on, and to this day still, there is no greater feeling for me than to be known as his mother.

The last twelve years have gone by so fast. There are so many firsts I remember, and so many firsts I'm looking forward to.

Happy Birthday, Bailey! I love you, SON! :)

I always remember hearing the saying "time flies fast" and I have to agree with you, it really truly does fly quickly. My Hannah (14)and your adorable Bailey are growing up as fast as lightning. By the way, Bailey's baby picture looks so much like my Hannah as a baby. Maybe that's why even though I dressed her in pink and put a bow on her bald head, folks still told me what a cute baby boy I had. LOL

Joyfully,

Thanks, Jackie! They are growing up WAY too fast! You know it's funny you say that about everyone thinking you had a cute baby boy... BOTH of my boys were always mistaken for girls! Even when I had them dressed in blue from head to toe with ball caps on, lol. I was once told it was because they both had such long eyelashes. I have like 3...total between both eyes. :D Their's are long and beautiful. I have no idea why that would equate to "oh it's a girl" all the time, but it is what it is. :)

Thanks again!
