~eight is great~


"Before you were conceived I wanted you.
Before you were born I loved
you. Before you were here an hour I would die for you.
This is the miracle
of love."
- Maureen Hawkins


8 years ago today, hands down, was the best New Years celebration we have ever had.
I got to ring in the New Year holding my new 9 pound bundle of joy!

Every day has been a new adventure.
Happy 8th birthday crazy Cody,
we love you to the moon and back,
and back again.
xoxo

My oldest daughter was born on Dec 30th (34 years ago) so I know how you felt bringing in the new year with a newborn. Your son is darling.

That will be one of your most favorite pictures ever of your son...long after he is grown and on his own. God bless this beautiful child, Melanie. I hope he has grandparents that treasure him as much as you do! Hugs-Diana
