My Baby Boy is THREE!!

I cannot believe that my Cameron Michael is three today!! We love every minute spent with our boy & thank God everyday for blessing our lives with such an amazing, sweet child.

Cameron's birthday is so much more special to me than my own since it was a day that changed my life forever. He was born at 6:54 pm after only a little more than three hours of extremely intense labor. This fits his personality to a T since he's not the most patient little guy! When reading my friend Lauren's blog earlier this year, I discovered the words of an incredibly touching book that brings tears to my eyes each time I read it. After the first time I read it, I knew I wanted to buy this book for Cam for his next birthday so that's exactly what we did.

On the Night You Were Born
By Nancy Tillman

On the night you were born,
The moon smiled with such wonder
That the stars peeked in to see you
And the night wind whispered,
"Life will never be the same."
Because there had never been anyone like you... ever in the world.
So enchanted with you were the wind & the rain
That they whispered the sound of your wonderful name.
It sailed through the farmland
High on the breeze... Over the ocean & through the trees...
Until everyone heard it & everyone knew
Of the one & only ever you.
Not once had there been such eyes,
Such a nose, such silly, wiggly, wonderful toes.
When the polar bears heard, they danced until dawn.
From faraway places, the geese flew home.
The moon stayed up until morning the next day.
And non of the ladybugs flew away.
So whenever you doubt just how special you are
And you wonder who loves you, how much & how far,
Listen for the geese honking high in the sky.
(They're singing a song to remember you by.)
Or notice the bears asleep a the zoo.
(It's because they've been dancing all night for you!)
Or drift off to sleep to the sound of the wind.
(Listen closely, it's whispering your name again!)
If the moon stays up until morning one day,
Or a ladybug lands & decides to stay,
Or a little bird sits at your window awhile,
It's because they're all hoping to see you smile...
For never before in story or rhyme
(Not even once upon a time)
Has the world ever known you, my friend,
And it never will, not ever again...
Heaven blew every trumpet
And played every horn
On the wonderful, marvelous
Night you were born.

So Cameron, it is my wish for you that you never forget how absolutely, positively special you are! Mommy & Daddy could not ever ask for a more loving, funny & unique son as you are. The book is so true when it says, "There had never been anyone like you.. ever in the world." Thank you so much for blessing our lives... we could not imagine life without you. Happy 3rd birthday, my beautiful, amazing baby boy! We love you more than you'll ever know.
