happy birthday, jax!

dear jaxon,
it's your 2nd birthday!  2 years ago at this time I was heading to the hospital; anxiously awaiting your arrival.  my pregnancy with you was a rollercoaster ride, at times a very scary one.  the Lord healed you while you were still inside me.  what a miracle you already were, and i couldnt wait to meet you.  as i labored i watched a huge hurricane barrel our way.  nothing like a little added motivation to get you safe in my arms :)  here is the last pic of you inside my tummy.  wow!  i should've known you were gonna be a BIG boy.

finally, at 6:26pm you were here....all 9 lbs 11 oz of you.  even the doctor was amazed at your size.

 

we had a wonderful first night with you and Hurricane Gustav kept coming faster and closer. The next day we checked out quickly and prepared to Evacuate. Not the first few days I had planned for you, but plenty of friends and family in GA were able to meet you for the first time because of that storm.

Always remember Jax, that when there are storms in life, (there will be storms)-that God provides, even in the midst of them. We learned that so early with you, didnt we?

By the way, your big brother adored you from day 1-


Here are a few of my favorites from your 1st year......



and your 2nd year.....



I love you Jax!  You make us laugh daily.  You love eating, sleeping, warm milk, big trucks, pacis, Elmo, Dora, your brother, reading with daddy, climbing, playing outside......
Happy 2nd Birthday!
