Today is a Special Day!

Today is not only one of my son's birthdays, but two of them. Chad turns 29 today and Jace turns 3. Wow! I was only 18 when I had Chad and he was my second child. I don't remember it being a big deal at the time, but now I think, wow, 18 and two kids. I was 44 when I had Jace and I remember thinking, wow, how did this happen?!?
Anyway, today was special day 3 years ago and 29 years ago. Happy Birthday to two of the most wonderful boys a mom could ask for!!

I remember when the Dr. was scheduling my C-Section he said I could schedule it for Jan. 17 or Jan. 26. Of course, by that time I wanted Jace to born ASAP and the 26 didn't really work out for us anyway (one of the nice things about having C-Sections is scheduling the birth!). I called Chad and asked him if it would bother him if I had Jace on his birthday and he said, "Momma, I would be honored to share my birthday with my little brother." Chad is such a sweetie!

Jace and Mallory this morning.

For Jace's Birthday he wants pizza, presents, cupcakes, candles and a song.

Oh Yeah!

and Chad may get his first child,

Chad, Jr.

born today!

Jenn has been dilated to 4cm for the last few days

Wow! This is a HUGE day for your family. OOhh that would be neat for Chad Jr. to share a birthday with his dad and uncle.

Happy Birthday to your special sons! That's pretty neat they share a birthday, even though it was kinda planned. Nice that you asked first-lol
And maybe the new baby will make three!

Happy birthday Chad and Jace!!! =] That really is special!!!! My younger brother and I share a birthday too!!! We are exactly 1 year to the day.. and if you get technical and go by the time we are born, we are the same age till 10:09pm when I "age"!!! lol I hated it sooo much when we were younger (I felt like I was cheated out of being a baby) but now I love it! It is soooo unique!!!! My poor mom was 35 and 36 having us!!! lol
