Happy 9th Birthday Mr. J

Mr. J then and now
As I sit here typing this, I can hardly believe that Mr. J is 9 years old.  It seems like just yesterday I was told I needed to be induced, and welcomed my little boy into my arms.  My little Independence Day baby (even though we are Canadian). The first 2 weeks of his life had a whole whirlwind of emotions with them as he spent that time in the NICU. A whole lot has happened in his 9 years of life, and I am so thankful that I get to be this little boys mother.

We celebrated yesterday with his friends at a local trampoline park, they had a great time jumping, flipping, and playing dodge ball!

He requested a skateboard cake for his party, so after some major pinterest surfing, he found a few ideas to put together to make a cake

To continue the tradition I started on his first birthday, I woke up at 3:16am (the time he was born) to give him a kiss and quietly wish him a happy birthday. I will continue this tradition until he moves out on his own.


  1. Happy Belated Birthday to your boy! Crazy how time flies, my baby boy just finished high school....but my girl is about to start jk.
