Twelve years ago today.......

It can't believe it was twelve years ago that DS made an unexpected entrance into the world 12 weeks early. We both needed lots of medical care for a few weeks and this photo above was the first time I saw him. I didn't see him in person until he was nearly a week old. He is now nearly as tall as me and heading towards his teenage years. How does twelve years pass by so quickly? He had great joy in telling me that in just five years time he can learn to drive.

After having a water fight with him I remembered this quote by Walt Disney,

"To many people grow up. That's the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up. they forget. They don't remember what it is like to be 12 years old".

So remember you are only a old as you feel so I challenge you to, laugh, create, have a water fight, tell jokes, smile and give those you love hugs and kisses.


  1. Happy birthday to your DS for yesterday! Hope you had a lovely day.

  2. Oh my such a wee thing! How you must have worried. And it never stops, does it! I am so pleased he's so big n' strong now.

  3. I wanted to congratulate both you and your son for making it these twelve years and for him making each day such a joy.

    I visited your blog during OWOH. This is the first time I've been back. I've barely had time to begin looking at your blog, but I knew I had marked it for a reason. Your little quilt, dyeing techniques, including snow dyeing, and those lovely photos that accompany everything drew me to your blog today.

    I feature a blog each day, and I'm going to feature yours today. I hope to have more time later today to look at all your other posts, too.
