Happy Birthday, Braden!

It amazes me that my baby boy is celebrating his 2nd birthday today.  Where does the time go?  It feels like only yesterday that your dad and I were in the hospital patiently, and I do mean patiently (aka 42 hours of labor) awaiting your arrival.  It was the most amazing day!  An incredible experience and moments that changed me and my life in ways I could never imagine.

Seeing and holding you for the first time, watching you look into my eyes as if to say, 'Well, hello there.  We finally meet', are all images that are imbedded in my mind and heart forever! You are amazing!        

 To you, Braden I want to say how very proud I am of you!  How you have changed my life in ways I couldn't imagine.  You teach me so much each and every day!  You are an example of unconditional love.

I love your smile, your inquisitive mind, your spirit, your logic, your humor, your sensitivity, and your affection.

I love your desire to learn and explore.  Your ability to 'stop and smell the roses' and reminding me to do the same.  Your ability bring a sense of wonder and excitement into my life.  Each day is a new day!  The chance to start over!  For this, I thank you!

Wishing you, my son, a lifetime of roses, newfound passions, excitement and unconditional love.

Happy Birthday, Braden!
