Two years?

June 11, 2009

Sara, Titus

I remember exactly what I was doing this time two years ago.

Every year on my birthday my phone rings usually before I wake up. It’s always my mom. Whether I try to sleep a little longer and let her leave a message or wake up to get my birthday greeting, it always starts with the same message. “I remember exactly what I was doing (insert number of years old I am) ago.” I always love it.

Its funny now that I’m a dad and it’s all I can think about right now. Second to my wedding day, June 11, 2007 was the most amazing and beautiful day of my life. It was one day before Titus’ due date and Sara went into labor. Funny thing though, Sara didn’t know she was in labor. We checked in to the hospital right after lunchtime. A little after 9:00 PM, less than three hours before his due date, Titus came into this world.


I don’t know where all this love came from, but I love that boy like crazy. As much as I can’t wait for him to grow up so we can go on hikes, play games together and swim in the pool together, I’ve LOVED every stage. I love my time with him before he goes to bed. I lay on my bed after I bush his teeth and he brings me a book we can read together. I sing to him and if he’s in the mood, we have a little wrestling match. After giving mommy a kiss goodnight, I put him to bed. Before putting him down, I pray for him and let him snuggle in my arms for a little while. Usually before putting him in his bed, I’ll give him some kisses under his chin which always make him giggle. I love this routine. I love my little boy. Then several hours later before I go to bed, I go in to check on him. I put his blanket back on him and put some toys in his bed for him to play with when he wakes up. I love watching my boy peacefully sleep. I love this boy, I love this boy.

So, I remember two years ago like it was yesterday. My life changed forever. I love being a dad. I love my Titus. Happy birthday son!

    Look how squishy baby Titus was. He seemed huge! (I guess I did just pop him out.) That pic almost makes me ready for another fresh baby.
