I cannot believe I am writing this…
JUDE IS 8 YEARS OLD TODAY!!
I remember how it all started, Jeremy and I went to the Boston Red Sox vs Colorado Rockies game on June 23. 2010. This game was Jeremy’s 1st Father’s Day gift and we were so excited for this game. I knew we were taking a risk at not making the game because babies do not care about due dates but we made it and it was a perfect last date night out before becoming parents. We dressed in our Boston Red Sox gear and went to the game. Do you know how many stairs and steps there are at Coors Field….A LOT!
I think those stairs and steps assisted in Jude deciding that 38 weeks was a perfect time to be born. While at work the following day I started having weird PMS like cramps and by the end of the evening we were checking into the hospital! After walking laps around the hospital for what seemed like ages Jude was born on Friday June 25, 2010 at 10:57am!
It seems like forever ago that we experienced this and I have a really hard time remembering our family without Jude. From the moment we snuggled this boy took a special place in our hearts. While his anxiety and sensitive nature drives me crazy sometimes I am quickly reminded at how these characteristics are what make Jude our JUDE! He is empathetic, so incredibly smart, creative and silly.
I know I have said this before but I will say it again, it GOES SO FAST!! I cannot believe that the candles on Jude’s cake will show the #8. Happy Birthday Jude! We love you so much and cannot wait to see what this year holds for you. To our Turtle, Buddy and Jude HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
