Happy 18th B'day, Cam

On this day, at this hour, I was giving birth to our second son, Alex Cameron Kelly. Before I went for my C-Section, the doctor told Jeff and me that he wasn't going to be a very big baby. Look at this picture and tell me what you think. Was he right or wrong?

He was a giant of a baby, weighing in at 9 pounds, measuring 21 3/4 inches long! And honey, let me tell you. It was 9 pounds of pure sweetness. What wouldn't I give to go back to that day just for a few minutes.

Now, he's a senior in high school. Slowly mapping out his future.

He makes me proud. He's thoughtful. He's sweet to his cousins. He loves his family. He's determined. He's hard-headed. He makes me work out harder than I ever thought I could. He makes me laugh every day. He also can frustrate me more than any other person on earth.

He's my second born son, Alex Cameron Kelly. And I love him with all my heart!

Yep, can't believe he's 18! I'll never forget those sweet honeybun cheeks. He was a gorgeous baby, that's for sure. So lucky and blessed you have been.
Love you and Happy b-day to Cam (Mon to those who know and love him!)
