Our Brave Hero turned six early this morning.
One of my happiest days ever, along with the birth of Parker’s older siblings.
Before Parker I kept feeling as though somebody was missing.Â Â But six years ago today I knew that finally, we were all here.Â Together just as was planned in the time before this.
My joy was immense.
I remember that instead of my doctor putting Parker directly on my chest as the others had been, Reed reached out and claimed his new born son.Â I remember Reed and Parker looking into each others eyes and falling in love. I remember falling in love with Reed all over again in that exact moment.
I also remember Parker peeing all over the OB.Â But that’s a story for another day.Â Served him right for choosing to leave the hospital to go home for a shower five minutes before Parker choose to make his grand debut.
We’ll do our actual celebrating on Sunday when everyone can be here.Â I’ll have lots of pictures to share.Â I promise.
But today I just wanted to say thank you to my Father in Heaven for his trust in me with one of His most amazing of spirits.
