My baby is 14


14 years ago today at 7:57 am I delivered a tiny, tiny baby weighing in at 6 pounds 3 ounces. He was 19 inches long with about 6 inches of that being the cone coming out the back of his head. He was hairy- his back, his forehead, his ears... And he was mine. I was in labor with Tristan for 29 hours from the 1st contraction. He made his way into the world and my first thought was, "What the heck is wrong with his head?" But then they stuck one of those little beanies on him and then I thought, "He is so beautiful." Looking back, he was actually an ugly newborn, but really most newborns are ugly- just not to their moms which is why he looked beautiful to me. ;)
I love Tristan so much. He is so freakin' witty. He just busts out with these sarcastic things out of no where. Idk WHERE he gets that from. Tdog is athletic. He can excel at any sport he tries because he's just a natural athlete. He is so great with babies- probably because as the oldest he's had a lot of practice. He is thoughtful and well-behaved. He's smart and he's a great hug-giver. I love his hugs.
Anyway... today he is 14. I can't believe I have a 14 year old. CRAZY. And he's so handsome with a normal shaped head and 2 eyebrows, not one. I love you Tdog. You make me so proud.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

Found you by way of Glittersmama and a funny comment you left there. That, combined with the kooky picture made me check out your blog. LOVED your husband's piano arrangements! Are they just for fun, or has he put out a CD?

Happy birthday, T-diggity. You've now reached the age at which I'd know better than to challenge you at a game of one-on-one basketball.

Tori, wow, you have a 14 year old? That must make you pretty old then, huh?

Happy Birthday, Tristan! I remember your pointy head, too, but am glad to say I concur on all your mom said here.

Hey mom congratulations for surviving 12 and now 13! But it doesn't sound like he really gave you too much of a run for your money. Happy Birthday Tristan! Love that pictures. Hawtness:)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Tristan! I didn't realize we had sons so close in age...Zach will be 14 in a month! :)

My first baby was tiny too...6 pounds 2 ounces. His head was shaped funny from the forceps they had to use. (OUCH!)
