The Birthday Boy

“Mom, did you know that I’m not a baby anymore?” Jax asked me as I buckled him into his car seat. “I’m a big kid now,” he continued. “I’m FOUR!”

“You sure are a big kid, Little Buck,” I agreed. “But you’ll always be my baby.”

Cue tears.

Awww…my big kid really is growing up. What an awesome adventure it’s been.

Last week, we took our annual trip to the resort where I went into labor with Jax four years ago. This has been a difficult trip for me for obvious reasons. Each year has gotten a bit better for me, emotionally.

I have to say that this year was mostly fun and there was very little sadness or anxiety, so I am definitely healing.

Jax had a blast playing with his cousins and fishing on our boat.



He also had two big birthday celebrations – one at the resort with our family and one at home with his friends.

Cheers to life, and healing, and love.

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.

One thought on “The Birthday Boy”

  1. Happy 4th Birthday Jax!!!! It looks as though you had a lot of fun celebrating with two great parties!! I sure miss your hugs and smiling face and visiting with your mom😃

    I look forward to reading about your second year of preschool this fall.

    Hugs to you….
