Happy Birthday Stratton!

Today is my oldest son's birthday! He's 9 today! Wow, They sure do grow up quick! Stratton is my very shy child. He can also be quick tempered, but usually just at home. I wanted a boy so bad when I found out I was pregnant with him! I was so excited when I found out that he was a boy!

On December 15, 1999, at 2:15 am, after 17 1/2 hours of labor, I finally gave birth to my first baby! He was 8 lbs 10 ozs and 21 1/2 inches long. He had beautiful skin, a perfect round head, and the sweetest little chubby face I'd ever seen! I was so in love with this baby! He was perfect! Big, healthy, blonde haired, blue-eyed and beautiful!

Stratton has always been a pretty good kid. Of course he had his moments, but they all do, don't they?! When he started Kindergarten, he struggled with school work for awhile. He slowly started catching up and this year, he made the honor roll! I was so proud of him. He loves to read, play video games, play sports, and fight with his brother. He's growing way too fast and growing out of all his clothes!

Here are some older pictures of Stratton. I got Shelley to scan the ones she had, so I could post him. Of course the newest one is on my side bar! Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Stratton. Sorry I am a day behind reading blogs.
December 15th happens to be my brothers birthday also, except he's 19 now. I can still remember holding him when he was just a baby. They do grow up way too fast.
