Five years ago right now (9:45 pm, June 8) I was in labor but not believing that it was happening. I was preparing to meet my sweet baby. The baby that came to help heal my heart and fill my arms. Five years ago at midnight, my water broke. Five years ago, June 9 at 4:59 am, my darling boy came into the world.

I can not believe that he is FIVE today. My very sweet boy makes me smile every day. A couple birthday Sethisms for you --

"I am going to take a shower on Monday night so I can wake up clean on my birthday!"

"Amelia, you might not recognize me tomorrow when we wake up, because I'm going to be 5."

"Mom? How many more birthdays until I can drive?" "11 sweetie" "11?!?! That is AWESOME! That's not very many, I can almost DRIVE!"

My sweet Bubs,

Oh how I love you. Whether you are being Obi Wan Kenobi, Anakin or Luke Skywalker, or even Yoda, you are the light of my life. You came into this world when I needed you most. You saved my life in so many ways. I was in such a dark place when I became pregnant with you. I had many spiritual experiences with you before you were born. I knew your Spirit and when you were born I recognized that Spirit. I know that God saved you for me and for our family. I am so blessed to be your Mom.

Happy Birthday to you my sweet Bubs. I hope and pray that 5 is as wonderful for you has you have made the last 5 years for me. I can't wait to see what is in store for you this year.

I love you to the moon and back...
