Hi Everyone!!

Well, on this day, 12 years ago at 8:01 p.m., the most special little boy (at least to me) was born.  I had been married for 14 years and tried for years to have a child.  He was special that day and he is even more special today!!

From the day he was born, I sang to him when he was going to sleep.  The song I sang over and over was "You Are My Sunshine!"  I would rock him to sleep (yes, I admit, I did it) and I'd sing.  We both loved it!!  Now whenever Jacob doesn't feel good, is sick, or nervous about something, he'll say - Mommy, sing to me!!  I remember one time, I took him to the doctor and they were going to test him for strep throat and the flu (which he had).  He told me on the way to the lab that he needed to go to the bathroom.  His doctor showed me where it was.  Well, when we get in the bathroom, he turns around and says - "I don't need to go to the bathroom, Mommy, just sing to me!"  We stood in the bathroom while I sang through the whole "You Are My Sunshine" song!  After that, he went out into the lab and had both tests done without crying!!  Just last week, he had a stomach virus and he asked me to lay down with him and sing to him.   I did and he fell asleep while I was singing.   Even at 11, I can still sing him to sleep!  I just LOVE that boy!!!!!

So, TODAY IS JACOB'S BIRTHDAY!!!!  He is 12 years old today going on 18!!  I thought this card that I made for him was very appropriate for him!!  He is our sunshine and we could not imagine our lives without him!!

I made this card using Wild Card 2 cut at 4".  This cartridge makes the card and the envelope for you!!  GOTTA LOVE IT!!!  I hope Jacob loves it as much as I do!!

Thank you for stopping by today!!  We appreciate your visits and your comments!!  Until another day, God Bless You!!
