Happy 3rd Birthday Joshua

Today 3yrs. ago I was in the hospital in labor with a very precious bundle who was trying to make his appearance 4weeks early. It was a huge huge snow storm. It took us a little while to get to the hospital earlier in the morning. Mom & Dad had a 4-1/2 hr. drive and because of the snow they were 15min. late. Joshua Aiden Dewhurst made his appearance in this world at 2:38pm. He weighed 5lbs 14.8oz and was 19in. long. He was having problems breathing so after I held him for a few minutes they rushed him to the nursery to be put on a oxygen hood, IV's, heart monitors, etc. It was 2days before I could hold him or even nurse him. He came through everything and started gaining weight. He has been healthy ever since then. He has been a wonderful child except for the terrible two's and the pooping training which we are still trying to conquer, but I'm not sure if it will ever be done! :-) He is very active and very smart and very funny. We love him so much and thank God for giving him to us. This picture here below was taken in the hospital. He looks so tiny.
Here he is. A little man who is very ornery today.
Joshua, I hope that you have a happy birthday. Mommy loves you very very much.
