Happy Birthday To My Jordan

I can't believe my Jordan is 15 today...
it seems like he was just this little...
and now he stands way taller than me.

He is my first born.
He has been such angel in my life, bringing me joy and being my inspiration!
He is hilarious, fun and laughs easily.
These 15 years have gone by way too fast.
 I think Elyse looks a lot like Jordan in this picture. And I was so young in this picture too. Look at my overalls! ha ha ha I was feeding him in his Excersaucer, which is where he preferred to eat- he liked it much better than a high chair!
Oh, I miss him when he was this little...he's been melting my heart for 15 years now...actually even longer...he melted my heart long before I even saw him. Each little kick I'd feel when I was pregnant...melted my heart too. Every day, as a new mom, I would just spend, holding him, feeding him, dancing him around, staring at his precious face, singing to him, and just showering him with my love. It was just me and him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week...and I loved every second of being his mama. I wish for only a minute or 2, I could crawl into these pictures and just hold him as a baby again. I remember the exact moment I took this picture...it just makes me want to cry. I loved that baby so much....I still love my "giant baby" now. Enjoy every second of your babies now, or one day when you have them...you'll never get that time back and it goes by too fast for you to enjoy every second enough.

 Jordan....
I love you so much. I am so proud of you. You are the best big brother and son. The moment I learned I would have you, my heart was yours to keep. My heart grew bigger that day to hold all the love I have for you. You make me laugh so hard and we are always laughing. I feel like I already miss you, because you are growing so fast and I will miss hearing you laugh one day, when you move out on your own. Sometimes my favorite sound is just hearing your laughter come from your room while you're talking to your friends. I am happy and honored to be your mom...and my heart does cartwheels when you come to talk to me, joke with me...or show me something funny. I don't even mind when you tell me you don't like something I'm wearing or the color of my lipstick.
Even though it's been years since you said it:
You are still the apple of my eye.....
And I will never forget how you replied: "and you're the carrot of me".....

Happy Birthday my Jordan....
I love you...more than more than more, your mama kandee

You really are an inspiration! Your love for life and your children is so pure, you're such a kind person, a beautiful woman inside and out. Your children are lucky to have you as their mum! My little son is a little over a year now and everytime I get annoyed with something he does or breaks, I just think of you, how you wouldn't be angry or yell, just say it's alright... I try to keep that in mind when I see he's up to something stupid again... Though it's hard to always stay calm, you and your kindness make me think twice! Thank you for that! And thanks for reminding me to cherish the moments with the little ones while they're still little... I hug you lively lady!

Your post was so heartfelt. I'm not a mother but I truly admire you for having so much patience & kindness with your children. You give them your all & that's what's going to matter the most to them when they're older. Ignore all the negative people that want to rain on your parade. You're amazing, funny & best of all, a pretty awesome Mom! Happy belated birthday Jordan! (:

You inspire me to be a better mommy and your words of encouragement have helped me suceed in taking those steps into becoming a makeup artist and to not be scared of dressing the way I like which can be random and weird at times lol thank you kandee so much.
