My sweet baby boy is 9!!!

OH MY WORD!!!
I seriously can not believe 9 years have past since my little star was born.
this is my scrapped page from years ago.
I looked at it last nite & it put some of my sadness in check.
the power of memories is amazing.
As I felt Nick's baby blanket along the side of this page, I surely counted my blessings.
The beginning...my happy...beautiful dream



and look at the MASSIVE LITTLE MAN he has become!!!



I still look at him with amazement
that he is mine
made from our love.
miraculous indeed!

and here are my neices & nephews at the party just havin fun :)



I was so happy to see my oldest 2 neices smiling & laughin.
They are the one's who lost their aunt and I do believe they had more than just fun.
They understood we stand strong together...always...no matter what happens!
we hugged tight...filling eachother with one another's love.

I want you all to know my family & I
have been overwhelmed with the
love, support & friendship
extended by so many.
WOW is all I can say
you crafters are some special peeps :)
you have helped my sisterinlaw and brotherinlaw
and our families
face these, most difficult times
for that I am eternally grateful
please hug yourselves (real tight) from me
xo v'ness
