Happy 12th Birthday to My Son Daniel!

January 9th 2014 1 minute to read

It absolutely blows my mind that my firstborn, my teeny tiny chubs, is now in his last year before he is a full-fledged TEENAGER. Where has the time gone?!

So here we go with a ton of photos!

Just being cute!


Holding hands with Uncle Odis

I am absolutely so blessed that he is my son! He is AWESOME!

I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

Thank you so much!

Happy birthday Danny!! :)

Thank you!!

Oh. my. word. 12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DANNY! I can’t believe he’s already 12! I think I remember when you originally posted the 5th picture, haha. Sarah, you make gorgeous babies who turn into very handsome young men, apparently!

Isn’t it crazy!?!? I was still pregnant with him when I started OSN specifically… started blogging in general a month and a half before finding out I was pregnant with him… ahhhh!!!

I am going to FREAK when he turns 13. Seems like a REAL age lol!


That 5th picture makes me melt. Happy Birthday to him! Time certainly does fly.

Thank you Caity!


Love the pictures! It’s so hard to comprehend that he’s twelve years old… it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long!

HA! I bet you still remember me IMing you all crazy like when I found out I was pregnant!


Absolutely! I wasn’t at the computer for some reason, but I heard my IMs pinging over and over again. *grins* You swirled it.
