Happy, happy Monday! What a happy day it is! Today is Mikey’s Birthday! WHOOO! HOOO! Today was also supposed to be the new blog format…. I am not as computer savvy as I thought, I am hoping it is done tomorrow! I will keep you updated!
Today I want to just wish Mikey a happy birthday! He is my first son, an absolute joy. From birth he has blessed our family. I still remember when he was born, I looked at him and I knew him. I knew him…. I will never forget that. I knew he was to be named after Mike, I still remember Mike being shocked and saying No, lets think of a different name and I stood firm. That was his name, we had to name him after Mike. He has been sweet Mikey ever since!
Here some fun information about Mikey!
Mikey is the little baby, hugging Emma…. Love this!
I still remember I was in Colorado visiting my sister Iris when Mikey scooted for the first time, he was 8 months old, at nine months he started walking and was jumping off stairs by the time he was a year! He has broken his collarbone twice already! He does not love sports but loves to dance.. he would enjoy outdoors more if there were not so many bugs…..
He is a lover of reading! He has already read the whole Book of Mormon. Mikey reads every moment that he can! He is the only I know who tries to get dressed while reading a book! He goes to a birthday party, he brings a book! Mikey went to a Brewers / Cubs game and he brought a book! Every Christmas and birthday… books are first on his list! Big books too! I think he has read Harry Potter at least five times…. the whole series.
He is so kind to others, he loves animals and one day wants to have at least 100 cats. I think good luck with that one buddy! Mikey has super self-esteem and will always stick up for the little guy. Funny story, Emma had these sparkly shoes and a white fur vest she was getting rid of. Mikey saw them and wanted them! He wore them proudly! I love his confidence! There was a boy in his class who was always taking the Lords name in vain. Mikey went to him and asked him to please not do that, the boy finally listened and still does not swear in front of Mikey. I admire his strength to stand up for what he knows is right. He is a giant in that way.
He is a wonderful boy, a sweet brother, a kind person and my son. I am grateful for him every single day. Mikey makes my heart happy and my life joyful.
I have to share this picture! This was taken when Mikey was 15 months old! In the day of film camera! My sister Joani, who is an amazing photographer captured this! I love it ! It is crazy how high he went and you can see the joy on his face! I love that he is looking at his dad and knows Mike will catch him! I admit, I did not know just how high he had been thrown until we got picture back!!
Happy birthday sweet Mikey!
Hopefully, I will have the blog up tomorrow…… it is coming!!
