12 Years, 4383 days, 105,192 hours

So many numbers.  They only begin to tell the full story, one that is not over yet.  

Today Aaron turns 12.  Twelve years!!

Last night we had a party for him.  It was a much smaller scale than his first party, but similar as well.  Friends and family came to wish him happy birthday.  We had cake.  And he was tired.

He pretty much slept soundly through his first birthday.  

And he dosed off and on all evening yesterday.  

It's just where we are now.  

So grateful for this little man, this teacher of our souls.  He is such a blessing in our family and in the lives of many others.  

He did wake up and smile when he heard the sirens though.  I pointed out that yes, his friends had come.  And No, he wasn't going with them.  

Happy Birthday, Aaron.  We love you.
