Birthday Boy

12 years ago we were blessed with a baby boy. He was big and he was healthy. 9lb9oz! I don't think my husband believed he had a boy (he wasn't in the room - c-section - I was asleep, he couldn't handle it!) I think he thought he might have to wait until baby #6 like his grandfather did. Nope! Good thing, too. We stopped at 4. Andrew has been an amazing teacher to me. I have learned the most, I think about being a mother, by him. At least the most about being a mother to a boy!
Our new family of 4 ~ 8/96

He STILL loves to run around naked. Even in the snow!
He still loves a ball.
He was hitting off a tee by the time he was 18 mos old. Would only hit if we pitched it to him by the time he was 2.
Birthday #9. Hard to have a summer bday. Only friend that could come! Made it easy on me :)
Bday # 10

He has become a little man. I am so grateful that he and his dad have such a great relationship. His father is a good person for him to take after! I love my boys!
Andrew has decided to receive the Aaronic Priesthood. He will be ordained next week. I wasn't sure if this day would ever come. Because of his father's willingness to live the gospel and hold the priesthood, my son will be a holder of the priesthood. What an amazing day!

I love you, Bud!

Andrew was in my Sunday School class when we moved to CA a few years ago. I can't believe that he is 12! Congrats on the priesthood. My favorite Andrew story was a lesson we had on keeping the Sabbath Day Holy. This was before your husband was baptised, mind you. "We don't usually do too much on Sunday, except when the Tigers are playing. My Dad says that it is ok." Funny.

Yea for Andrew!!! Happy b-day to him and congrats on his fabulous choice to receive the preisthood!! Just wait until the first time he passes the Sacrament -- it is the strangest thing for a mom. (I have a 12 year old too)
