Evan turns 6

I can't believe that I am writing this post right now.  My Evan is turning 6 today!  I remember vividly the beginning of his life.  I remember the anxiety and nerves that Justin and I felt as we waited for THAT phone call.  We knew Evan's tummy mummy was in active labor.  We were worried about her and so excited for the arrival of our baby.  I will never forget the early morning phone call announcing the arrival of our baby boy.  Mom and baby were doing well and we were relieved.  The emotions of his placement are still so alive to me that I feel like it was yesterday.  Our life was forever changed 6 years ago today and I will always be in debt to his amazing tummy mummy who chose us to parent her child. She loves Evan so much and we love her!

Evan is one of the most incredible people I've ever known.  He has a humor beyond his 6 years which is constantly surprising me.  Despite Evan's weakened muscles he is an example of strength to me.  The endurance he displays through his individual trials amazes me everyday.  Evan loves me, worships his Daddy, and adores his brothers.

Evan loves and hates the spotlight, depending on his mood and he is always up to playing his video games or Ipad.  Evan doesn't deal well with life when he is tired but is pretty good at reading what his body needs.  He is still very into pirates, but has developed a love of Star Wars and legos.  I learn every day from my handsome man.  I can't wait to see what this year holds, there are a lot of firsts.  He will be starting "real" school and I am pretty sure we are both a little nervous about it.  Deep down I know it will be good for him and I so look forward to all of the things he is going to learn this year and see how he develops and grows.

I thank God everyday for giving me this little boy to love and be with everyday.  He has made me a better person.  Happy Birthday Evan! We love you more than words!!!!!
