Today is one of my most special days, the day my Bubba boy, Cameron was born EIGHT years ago!
Oh, Cameron, what can I say about you on this special day of yours? There are so many things that come to mind when I think of you! Passionate, persistent, stubborn, sometimes exhausting, loving, kind, sweet..
I always say that the way you born is so fitting to who you are. When you decided you were ready to enter the world, you were very dedicated & made it happen very quickly. There was nothing calm about it! You're still like that.. when you decide you want or "need" something, you want it right now. Two seconds it too long to wait!
You still love to hear stories about our time together when you shared my body. You were constantly in motion & I always felt like I was carrying my best friend with me where ever I went, I was never alone. You always had the hiccups, especially at night & you loved to stretch & pull the heck out of my already too-short torso!
When you were a baby, if you weren't happy, we all knew about it! You're still like that today.. very vocal about your likes & dislikes, hence, passionate. Though there are times I can be impatient with you at the end of a long day, I would never change a thing about you. So many random times, you'll just say the sweetest things. "You're so pretty, Mom" "Mom, if I could choose any mom in the world, I would choose you." Feelings are mutual, sweet kid, I'd never choose another son!
Love this picture above so much. It was a sweet moment with you & incidentally, I was also 16 weeks pregnant with your sister! Speaking of your sister, we definitely need to work on "that whole thing." The two of you tend to bicker & fight A LOT. Causes a lot of inharmonious moments in our days. But, I know you guys love each other.. I can see it!
Nothing speaks truer to me than the quote from The Night You Were Born (which also makes me weep each time it's read!), "On the night you were born, the 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 AGAIN. Because there had never been anyone like YOU.. ever in the world."
