My baby is one today.
Jackson, just a few hours old.
It’s hard to believe and yet, it’s like he has always been in our family. We call him the Baby King and he fills our home with joy and laughter and mischief. He is the apple of his older brothers’ eye. Never have two older brothers been more infatuated with their baby.
Birthdays are a big deal at this house. It’s a special day for my kids and their birth moms. It’s THEIR special day together. If you’d like to read a heart-wrenching and heart-warming account of the day Jackson was born, please check out the post that was featured on Portrait of Adoption and The Huffington Post entitled Our Jackson.
Before all the birthday pressure and expectations and presents, I hired Kim Orlandini Photography to come over yesterday for a quick 20 minute session of Jack Jack and a birthday cake.
So happy birthday to The Baby King.
And hugs and prayers and peace to his beautiful birth mother. We love you!
