Happy Birthday, Carver

Today Carver turns... No, I can't even write it. I CAN'T!!!!  He's ...
(insert long pause while I bite my nails and procrastinate and eat more birthday cake)

There. I said it. It's actually worse than when I turned 40. Much, much worse. I mean, honestly, how the heck did this happen? 

Carver is a steady source of joy and comfort in our lives right now. I am so incredibly thankful for him. Despite his best attempts to head to the emergency room twice a week on his bike, skateboard, roller blades  and tree climbing, he is healthy and happy and just awesome. 

And we need a lot of that in our house right now. (I have a feeling pretty soon I'll be divulging more of what's been going on in our lives this past year... but rest assured Carver is just what the doctor ordered.)

I have some totally awesomesauce pictures on my camera that I hope to upload before the year 2017, and when I do I'll be sure to post them here. For now, I am a proud mom to a growing young man. A young man who was entrusted to us by his birth mother 14 years ago. 

We love you, peanut.

That is SICK, Cathy! You are lucky to have such a an awesome son. I love Carver (I hope he doesn't read your blog, because I don't want him to feel awkward next time I see him :). Happy Birthday to your baby boy!
