Adam John (aka “A.J.” ) is seven years old today! Here is a recent photo of him in his Notre Dame baseball uniform, which is his current team. In fact, he’s at a game right now. (I’m home baking his birthday cake and wrapping gifts for his party tonight)
A.J. is #6 in our family. His actual due date was 03/03/03 — I was SO hoping that I would go into labor on that day! What a cool birthday, I thought…all 3’s. But instead he was late and was born on the 9th. And so his birthday is 03/09/03 which is still a very cool birthday
A.J. was my first 10 pound baby, weighing in at 10 pounds 6 ounces and 22 inches at his birth. (Aria one-upt him, though, at 10 pounds 7 ounces!) A.J. is the ONLY one who has my eyes. Out of NINE children he is the only one with blue eyes! He is proud of that…it gives us a special bond I love my A.J. so much!
Happy Birthday, my sweet boy!
