My oldest turns 15 today!

This is Layton today in front of the same rhodie that we have been taking his picture at every year even the day I had him.

Isn’t this precious?
Mom made me take this even as I was in labor and headed to the hospital.
First day at home, look at Jim look at him…

Happy Birthday to my biggest baby! Layton James, you truly are an amazing kid and you couldn’t have a Momma that is more proud of her son. The first time that you were placed into my arms….a feeling I will NEVER forget. Indescribable feeling of love for another human being that I had never felt before. I thought in my head, “I wonder if this is how our Heavenly Father feels about each one of His children?” I thanked Him for giving me a possible glimpse of what He feels for me.

I am so excited to see what the Lord has before you. You have such a strong sense about who you are and I pray that stays as you grow. I pray you keep walking the path the Lord would have you go and you always ask His direction. You are the biggest out of 3 down the line that look to you as a mentor, a leader is what you are.

Ok, now, as a client said to me today, “are you cutting hair tomorrow?” I said, “no taking the day off.” She said, “OH GOOD, I’m afraid you might not have a very steady hand tomorrow with all the anxiety you might have built up of the thought that your son will soon be driving the roads!” I think she is right, I am glad I am taking the day off too…….

Have a great day, and I celebrate your life, I am so grateful He gave me the job to raise you. I am blessed……..

Shauna - Oh My, this Auntie has a lump in her throat! How can it be? Those pics feel like yesterday. You tell Layo I do believe I was the first to see the top of his head as he made his debut – lol – ok maybe not gross him out.

Happy Birthday Layo – you are a handsome man inside and out! Love you!
