P.J. is E.I.G.H.T.

January 20th, 2001.

The day our little hellion came screaming his way into the world {and he hasn't stopped since, but don't tell him I told you so}. My water broke at about 6 am on a Saturday morning 11 days before my due date. I always thought that PJ had too many things to do in his life that he had decided that he had to get out early. But, as I think on it now I wonder if he might have just been really ticked off to have been booted out those 11 days early. LOL Whatever the reason, that boy has a fire in him that most days nobody can put out. Now, it's not always a bad fire. Most days it's a wonderful fire. An unbridled enthusiasm to get out and do whatever it is he has gotten into his head to do that day. But, when it's a bad fire, you'd better watch out! LOL I like to call it "passion". And, there's nothing wrong with passion. I say this because I could be called a little passionate at times, too. And, again, there's nothing wrong with passion.

So, here's to Peter James, or, as we like to call him when he's being "passionate" Pure Joy! Happy Birthday ~ we love you!

Nice, Steph, I just had to laugh! Imagine this husband and son are JUST like him! Poor me for having two of them. Oh yeah, there's nothing wrong with passion.
