7 years ago today...

I was 18 years old and holding my new baby. I was in wonder of new life but a bit scared at how this would change my life. Well, Jaidyn changed my life immensely but not once have I ever wanted to take it back. God has given me so many wonderful opportunities out of this experience. Being a young mum is cool. I love it. Sure, its hard, but its so 'me' and its what God has for me for my life right now.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful young man Jaidyn. He has been through lots of changes in life so far - living with just me, his father visiting on weekends. Then his father deciding to waver his role as a dad (4 years ago now?) and Jai having to adjust to having a new Dad. Its a lot for a little guy to deal with really (but happens so much in todays society), and I'm sure as he gets older, Jai will have a lot more questions and possibly want to see his biological father again. But he is such a sweet kid. He's so smart, so social, so sensitive, so loving. He's also a bit stubborn and messy and forgetful like his Mumma, but I love him with every ounce of my being!!

Happy Birthday sweetie!!

Pirate party review and pics to come, but for now I have to go and make some ganache icing for my special boy's birthday cake for tonight!

Happy Birthday to a special young man. Hope Jaidyn has had a wonderful day. Love the photos of you and Jaydyn Nat - he is such a good looker. He is going to break some hearts when he gets older.
