I was about to become a mother.
I had been attached to the little one growing inside me for months already, but I was finally going to get to hold him!
He was a stubborn little thing, and waited until "tomorrow" to actually make his entrance though.
May 15, 2003, just after 1 in the morning, he finally arrived!
9lbs, 4oz, 20 1/2 inches
One of my sisters got married just one month later, so he got to come to GA and meet a lot of my side of the family while he was very young!
And his Uncle Josh on Daddy's side.
How could anyone resist that face?
He was a well traveled little baby.
The Freeman grandparents took him to Lake Tahoe.
My sisters took him to Florida.
We visited my grandparents in Indiana, and stopped in Nebraska on the way home to visit wonderful friends.
So for his first birthday we made him a cake of the USA, showing all the places he had already travelled. (If you count the ones we just drove through, he had already been to 9 states!)
He enjoyed it.
In the morning we will celebrate 12 years of loving him.
I am so very glad that God allowed me to have my greatest desire.
I am so excited to see the man of God he is growing into.
I miss those baby kisses, but the smiles I still get are just as sweet.
I love you Canaan Andrew.
Blessings my friends,
