Today, is a celebration of 9's. Stevie is 9 months old. I can hardly believe it.
9 months ago, I was holding you for the first time in my arms. You were born at 9:15am and weighed 9 pounds 1 oz.
9 months before then, your daddy and I were as excited as we could be for this surprise.
9 months before that, I was visiting Daddy in San Diego, getting ready to say goodbye for his deployment. *He certainly brings beauty from ashes...
9 months before then, I was hoping for you...for whenever we'd be blessed with you. Instead, we found out Daddy was recalled to the Marine Corps, and God was making ready the perfect time for your arrival, when we could all be together.
9 months prior to that, Daddy and I were newly engaged, making our wedding day preparations!
Finally, 9 months before that, Daddy called Mommy from Hawaii...and well, the rest is history.
What a difference 9 months can make! Happy 9 Months to my growing little man! We love you so much!
