One.

Dear Austin,

To the boy who has completed me as a mother, showed me what I'm good at and all I have yet to learn, happy birthday. Every inch of you makes me proud...proud to have an able body that could carry four children, proud to have been given the opportunity to be a mother, proud of what we're doing as a family, proud that I listened to the not-so-gentle nudge that told me you needed to come. I love you in every way imaginable. Happy Birthday, sweet boy.



Love,
Mama

Happy Birthday Austin! He is such a smiley little guy. I love seeing his little head poke over your shoulders at church and look around.


*Is it just me or are you super sore today? My bottom feels like I sat on a pile of rocks yesterday. :)
