First Date

When I was pregnant with our 4th baby, Brendon and I decided not to find out the sex. Since we already had 3 girls at that point, we decided we could only make girls and accepted our fate. LOL

Well, imagine our surprise when sweet, little Justin arrived. It was the first time Brendon cried in the delivery room. (In his defense, I was screaming rather loudly during labor with our first, and he passed out cold, literally, when the twins were born! LOL)

When Justin was two years old, he told me I would always be his "girlfriend". Well, that sweet, baby boy turned 14 before we knew it, and this past weekend he went on his first date to the Homecoming dance. 


This was my favorite picture and it just tugs at my heart. His date is a sweet, beautiful girl, but I hope he remembers that I was his first love.
