One week ago was mine and Conner's birthdays. On the same day! One might think that it could be difficult sharing a birthday with their child, but I have found it to be a unique and a special experience to share with him. Even though in the future I will most likely be planning his birthday parties and running around like a mad woman on that day, I really don't seem to mind having his birthday celebration over shadow mine.

Whenever one of my kids has a birthday, I tend to reminisce about how fast time has gone by and how much they have changed. Conner's 1st birthday has been a little hard on me. It seems like it was just yesterday when I met Conner for the first time and he was placed in my arms. I was amazed at how tiny he was compared to his older brother and the color of his hair. The nurses commented on his frosted tips on his hair our entire stay at the hospital.
Conner has been such a wonderful blessing to our family. It took ten long years for him to arrive from heaven, but he was worth the wait.
Happy 1st birthday Conner!
