A decade is a significant amount of time! A lot happens in 10 years. It is so hard to believe that 10 years ago right now I was laying in a hospital bed waiting to meet my firstborn, my son! Brent and I were beside ourselves with excitement. Well, technically, I think by this point in the day I may have been beside myself with some “happy drugs”… boy, did I like those! But, I was very happy! And very insistent that I wasn’t falling asleep… although Brent would beg to differ… since he was the undrugged, wide-awake one of us and all.
But then he came! Trent Whittaker was born!! We were so in love! That hasn’t stopped in the last 10 years. At times we have been frustrated, angry, confused, and bewildered by him and his antics… but way more than any of that we have been enamored, proud, awed, and pleased at the boy growing up before us… and in many cases, in spite of us. We are excited to see what the next 10 years hold for this young man… because that is exactly what he is becoming!
Happy Birthday, my sweet boy!! We love the kind, sensitive, loving son, brother and friend that you’ve always been!
