Jackson – ten years!

I thought it would be a fairly easy process to gather images from each of Jack’s birthday parties through the years. However, because of different computers, different cameras, different editing software, and different hard drives, it proved to be more difficult than I thought. And I realized through the process, that I never even touched any of the photos that I took from his 8th or 9th birthday celebrations. Bad mom!

Anyway, yesterday Jackson turned TEN! On one hand, it’s hard to believe it’s been ten years, but in many other ways, it already seems like we’ve lived a lifetime. And so here are some birthday highlights and just other photos through the years that I like.

So, without getting into the entire birth story this time around, I just want to leave you with a few phrases from Jackson’s birth. Some won’t make any sense to you, but they are memorable to Phillip and me.

– Cord around the neck…twice.

– C-section

– 9:42 p.m.

– “Look at that!!”  “Josh!!!!”

– Do you have a hemorrhoid?

– You want me check you?

– Hobbit breast shields

And ten…

And just like that, he’s ten whole fingers…well, minus a pinky. 🙂

Through the years, this child has provided us with endless laughter. He has grieved with us. He has lifted us up. He has given me a reason to get out of bed when I didn’t think I could. He has adopted three kids with us. He has danced with us. He is our sunshine. And he has made these last ten years the best years of our lives. I love you, boy.
