Happy Birthday Clint!

Today marks an important day.
9 years ago I became a mother.
9 years ago my son was born.
On February 20, 2002 at 6:36am a little brown-eyed, thick black haired baby entered the world.
How is it that that little 8lb 8 oz baby is now so big that last night before bed when I made him let me hold him like a baby, he pretty much squished me?
How is it that that little 21 1/2" long baby can take up an entire couch when he's laying down?
Today Clint is 9.

God truly blessed us when Clint was born.
We were really young, I was only 19 and Ben 21.
We didn't know much, but thought we knew everything about being parents.
Clint was by far our easiest baby.
He has always been the most obedient, never wanting to disappoint us.
He taught us how to be parents.

We haven't always done the right thing, or done things the right way.
But he has been an easy child that has always just put up with us as parents.

I love seeing how God is shaping his life.
And making him a young man after God's heart.

Happy 9th Birthday Clint!
We love you so much!
Thank you for making us parents- we love being your Mom and Dad!
