That's right. Jack has now been with us for TWICE the amount of time Josh and I have spent without him after being married.

Obviously, we are so grateful he is here. To think that my little boy flatlined 3 hours after birth, and was brought back to us by dozens of doctors so he could have his Gabba Birthday today means the world.

Jack was born 11:30pm December 17th, 2005. He came willfully on his own, a week before his induction date. I went into labor and called my mom to tell her I wouldn't be making it to the family party she was hosting, due to the birth of my child. She quickly finished up her preparation, put one of the guests in charge and she and my dad ditched their very own party to come be with me and greet their first grandson. Laura I'm sure would have been there too, but she was at the U2 concert and was a little late.

Jack was a beautiful 5 lbs 14 oz, and went straight from me to the NICU, then taken over to Primary's.

You know the rest...

So here we are, with a 25 lb three year old, who can sing, jump, run, play and keep up with the rest of the 3 year olds. We love him more than anything else in this world, and we hope to continue celebrating these birthdays/milestones for YEARS upon YEARS upon YEARS.

Happy Birthday Baby Bum.

Jack,one year old.

Jack, two years old.

Jack, three years old.

Happy Birthday sweet baby boy! I love how he says "Hi Lauwa" every time I see him...even the less enthusiastic greetings.
