Birthday Milestone!

When I was pregnant with my 2nd son (my 5th child), my only request of the doctor was that he NOT be born on 9/11.   Due to this request my sweet boy was born on September 9th.  Not only was he born on 9-9 but he was born at 9 minutes to 9, a clever bit of trivia that my father-in-law pointed out :)  So this past Sunday he had his 9th birthday on the 9th day of the 9th month at 9 minutes to 9.  I shot this picture at that very moment...

Yes, he thinks I am weird :)

For his birthday I gave him his Moose Quilt.

He may be pretending to be excited just a little bit ;D  He did get other cool "boy" things.

A few months ago we bought him a new trick bike as an early birthday present.  We reminded him frequently that he already received his BIG present from us :)

One other thing that he wanted to do with his brothers for his birthday was to sleep in his big sisters bed while she is out of town.  ....SHHHhhhhh... don't let her know! ;D

We checked in on them in the middle of the night and this is how we found them :)

Happy Birthday to my sweet little 9 year old!  May you live to celebrate your 99th birthday :)


  1. I bet he remembers and treasures that moose quilt long after he's lost interest in Star Wars Lego! What a gorgeous boy. Congratulations!

  2. What fun! The 'nines' is a cool thing. Just be glad he wasn't born on June 6 at six minutes to six. : )

  3. What a great smile! Cute kid, and I love that he wanted to sleep in the preferred bed. Too funny!

  4. Awww, how cute are they! Glad he had a nice birthday, the little Star Wars fan! :)))
