HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIMMY

Today is our oldest son's birthday. Jim Jr. (Jimmy) was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and weighed 10 pounds, 7 ounces. That morning while I was in labor, my husband and I watched as snowflakes fell outside the hospital window....on August 7th.

Back in those days, the father wasn't allowed to go into the delivery room, so Jim had to wait outside in the hallway while Jimmy was coming into the world...it was just the doctor, the nurse, baby Jimmy and myself. As soon as he was weighed, measured and examined, the nurse brought him for Jim to see and then carried him on to the hospital nursery. Jim was so proud of his "big" boy, but didn't get to hold him until later in the day.

Jimmy was ALWAYS a sweet and thoughtful child and has grown up to be a good man, loving husband and adoring father of two little girls (photos below). Jim and I are VERY proud of him. He's serving with the military and doesn't live close to us at this time; sadly we can't be with him today on his birthday, but he will be in our hearts and thoughts......HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A WONDERFUL SON.
