Jackson is 15!!
I remember the day I knew I was pregnant. I ate a banana and an apple and threw them up within 3.9 minutes flat. Done and done. I was in labor with you for 12 hours. The doctors tried twice to give me an epidural and both attempts failed. I pushed for three hours, then had a big slice "down there." They grabbed a vacuum device and sucked you right out. You had two heads for about one week. Pretty sure that's why you are so dang smart! You're welcome. You were my side kick for the first few years of your life. We managed apartments and you were with me every step of the way. You loved Baby Einstein videos, being held, eating, and Elmo. You hated sleeping, car rides, and not being held. You have been through so much in your fifteen years. Gosh, I am so proud of you. You are courageous, resilient, spiritual, on point all of the time, and smart. You are funny and so much fun. Your smile lights up our house. You are the best brother. Brooklyn always knows right where you are. She makes sure of it. You make her feel safe and secure. I am so grateful that I am your mom. I am so lucky to have you as my son! Here's to another year of happiness, laughter, and fun!!!
