Special Occasion

Recently, I’ve only been posting on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. But when a special occasion occurs on a day other than one of those, I make an exception.

And today qualifies as a special occasion.

Today is Marshall’s birthday. This is the first photo we have of him.

In that photo, he was ten days old, and that little newborn outfit swallowed him whole.

Marshall wasn’t due until July 17, but because of some health issues on my part, he came five weeks prematurely. He was also born with pneumonia in both lungs, so he spent ten days in the hospital before we brought him home.

The above photo was taken as we were preparing to leave the hospital.

And this picture was taken a couple of weeks ago.

The “older folks” told me to cherish every moment of his childhood, because time would pass quickly; but there’s no way I could have known just HOW quickly.

And as those years have passed, that special little baby has grown to be a special young man.

Happy Birthday, Marshall.
