Braxton turns 11.....

I can not believe I have an 11 year old!! Time just flies by so fast. It seems like just yesterday that he came into this world. Being 6 1/2 weeks early, we weren't sure if he would have any problems or would have to stay in the hospital or anything. But to our surprise, he came out healthy as ever and we only had to stay in the hospital for a day and a half. He is such a blessing to our family. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have him. He is always so willing to help out with tending, cleaning, or whatever I need help with. He is so easy going and is very well mannered. He is such a smart little cookie too! He has an amazing ability to write stories! He can come up with the most amazing things. his imagination is wild! I feel so blessed to have such a great boy that I get to call mine!! I just want him to know how special he is to me and how grateful I am to have him as a son. being the oldest isn't always the easiest, but I am sure glad you are the example that your siblings get to follow!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUD!! WE LOVE YOU
