Happy 7th Birthday, Jon Kent!

I'm not sure how we got here, but somewhere along the way someone hit the fast forward button.

Seven years ago today, at 5:05pm, Jonathan Kent Owens, Jr. was born.  He weighed a tiny 5 pounds, 8ozs and was 19.5 inches long.  He was our miracle baby.  Our baby that healed our hearts after losing two babies before.  He was tiny, perfect and ours.  I will never forget rubbing my lips across his blonde peach fuzz hair and thinking how blessed I was to be holding this precious baby.

Over the last 7 years there have been many more times that I have held Jon Kent, watched him run, watched him learn, watched him be an amazing big brother and again thought to myself how blessed I am to have him as my baby.

Jon Kent, thank you for being my first baby.  For teaching me unconditional love.  For making me a mommy. I hope that your 7th birthday was all that you dreamed it would be and I pray that you have 107 more birthdays to come!  I love you!!
